Election Day Blues 

 

Nobody’s gonna listen, 

Nobody cares, 

Coming on resistant, 

To the whole affair,  

Better tie my laces, 

Better cut my hair, 

 

Your plans and your doctrine, 

Don’t sit with me, 

I see what you’re doing, 

And I wholly disagree, 

Better wash my mouth out,  

Better tread with care, 

There’s something hanging in the air,

 

Well the kids are uniting, 

There's talk on the street, 

Change is coming, 

And it's gathering speed, 

Well it's a long long list of calamities, 

And I can't wait to see you leave, 

 

These pillars are crumbling, 

And the statues cry, 

People getting held up, 

For just asking why, 

Don’t bother contesting,  

You’ll get no reply, 

 

Watch out for the rebels,

In the fields of wheat, 

You might get ambushed, 

For something to eat, 

Hungry for power, 

For the sake of greed, 

What makes you think you’re fit to lead?

 

There's talk in the basements, 

There's talk on the streets, 

Change is coming, 

And it's gathering speed, 

 

 

Well it's a long long list of calamities, 

And I can't wait to see you leave, 

 

Cuts right through the system, 

Do the spending freeze, 

Bring the pride of a nation, 

Down upon its knees,

Business as usual, 

For the band of thieves, 

who take from those, that have the least,

 

 

Well the kids are uniting, 

There's talk on the streets, 

Change is coming, 

And it's gathering speed, 

And in this sad old state of comedy, 

The joke is on you, the joke is on me...
