In The Ghetto
(Elvis Presley)


Why don't we all just get stoned,
Get drunk and sing beer drinking songs
Between Breznhev and Begin
Khomeini and Reagan
We might as well all get stoned

Ya can't even look at the T.V. these days,
Without gettin' scared half to death
The eyewitness news leaves me used and abused,
And I find myself gasping for breath.
There's strikes and inflation
And strife between nations,
The world's in a hell of a mess
No matter who's hurtin'
There's one thing for certain,
The whole world will blame the U.S.

Why don't we all just get stoned
Get drunk and sing beer-drinking songs.
Between Brezhnev and Begin
Khomeini and Reagan
We might as well all just get stoned.

The Russians don't like us,
And we don't like them.
The Israelis hate the Ay-rabs.
Iran and Iraq are on each other's back
And El Salvador's still up for grabs.
I wish they'd take Idi Amin and Khomeini
And Khadafy and all the rest,
Tie'em up to a chair,
And make'em stare and Yassir Arafat,
'Til he uglies the whole bunch to death.

Why don't we all just get stoned,
Get drunk and sing beer-drinking songs.
Between Brezhnev and Begin
Khomeini and Reagan
We might as well all just get stoned.

There's mass unemployment,
And crime in the streets,
Inflation gets worse everyday,
They're taxin' us maximum,
And Congress ain't axin' 'em.
They most of my paycheck away.
Now Social Security
Has become an obscurity,
Where the hell's all the money we paid?
Lord, if the Commies don't take us,
Reaganomics will break us,
We ain't got a chance either way.

Why don't we all just get stoned,
Get drunk and sing beer-drinking songs.
Between Brezhnev and Begin,
Khomeini and Reagan,
We might as well all just get stoned
