Hard Times Are Fightin' Times

Lingua: Inglese




White collar, blue collar, pink collar mass,
We're all sinking real fast.
And every single day,
They're taking our rights away –
The first to go is the working class.
Well, crawling on my knees
Ain't my cup of tea;
I'd rather kick a little ass, –because:
Hard Times are fightin' times for me.

Hard Times Are Fightin' Times for you and me.
Times were hard enough in what they called prosperity.
I'll be - damned if my belt is gonna tightin';
Let the suits on Wall Street do the bullet bitin'
'cause Hard Times Are Fightin' Times for me !

There's over forty million poor
Who cannot afford
A bed in a hospital ward.
With so much wealth in this land
You know I don't understand
Why we all can't have health care and more.
Well send my medical bills up to Capital Hill
That's what my tax money's for. – because:
Hard Times are Fightin' Times for me.

Hard Times Are Fightin' Times for you and me
Times were hard enough in what they called prosperity.
I'll be - damned if my belt is gonna tightin';
Let the politicians do the bullet bitin' -because
Hard Times Are Fightin' Times for me !

I lost my job, fell off my horse;
They took my house; I had to get a divorce.
I'm on my last dollar, got holes in my shoes;
Might as well holler, I got nothin' to lose. –Yes

Well the whole damn corporate system is a mess
It's in rotting decay.
And they want the poor and working class to pay the penalty.
Get up out of bed, and wake up the dead,
'cause it's a brand new day. –because:
Hard Times Are Fightin' Times for you and me.

Hard Times Are Fightin' Times for you and me.
Times were hard enough in what they called prosperity.
I'll be - damned if my belt is gonna tightin';
Let big business do the big bullet bitin' –'cause
Hard Times Are Fightin' Times
Hard Times Are Fightin' Times
Hard Times Are Fightin' Times
for you and me.!
