The news are on the radio,

the word is on the street

We have let go of the things we used to know

And the truth has skipped a beat


The money men have bought them now,

the fools are on parade

There is nothing that can bring us further down

And the clowns have got it made




You would have thought that we’d get better

Smarter, brighter, wiser than before

We still need to keep the fight up

The rich are still the tyrants of the poor



They’re burning all our books again

The stupidity they hail

Had they known, they would be the better men

But they don’t know fact from fail
