Lyrics

Just a thought for all the rich folks who
Don’t want to pay their taxes
It’s better than class warfare for you
With it’s battlements, pikes and axes!
That’s so messy,
So unnecessary
I think we’d all like to be spared
History repeating Robespierre
 
But, if you’re worried about financial things
And you don’t want to pay out
And a tax increase is gonna break your heart
Sell a few rings
Ask yourself what you’re about
Take comfort in the feeling of doing your part
 
And you should learn how to make tortillas
Their so cheap and yet so good
I make the best tortillas
In my neighborhood
You don’t need a fine wine with them either
They go perfectly with beer
You gotta learn how to make tortillas
It’s a great idea
 
And you should buy a hybrid car
They’re classy, but smart
Makes it easy to prove
That you’re doing your part
And that 50 miles per gallon,
Now that’s not hard to take
When you’re having to pay taxes
For goodness’ sake
 
And when you go to the movies, take a bus
Sure you’re rich folks, and we’ll know that,
But we won’t make a fuss
And here’s a really good tip for a
Fine dining tasting lesson
Pass by that fancy expensive joint
Try the delicatessen
And if you insist on best, get the ribs!
Maybe it’s time you took a look
At how the other half lives
 
Or more accurately
The other 99 percent, it seems
Who have seen their earnings stagnate
And are cashing in their dreams
I’m not saying it’s your fault rich folks
In fact, I’m certain that it’s not
But the country is in a pickle
Can you throw something in the pot?
 
You oughta come and see us
We’re marching in the streets
It never should have come to this
But history repeats
And your representatives are doing
A really bad job on your behalf
Make a statement, come down and see us
Share some pepper spray and a few laughs
 
And, if you’re worried about financial stuff
You don’t want to pay out
And how a tax increase is gonna break your heart
Times are tough
You have to learn to do without
Take comfort in the feeling of doing your part.
Or even more than your part if you can afford it.
C’mon rich folks
The country’s in a jam
You can name stuff after you!
Like Carnegie Hall, Rockefeller Center?
We need some new names!
