v1
I hear people talking bad about this economy.
Say they're losing money everyday.
I ain't got much money to lose anyway.
`cept what they're stealing from my social security.
Chorus
I ain't asking no one for a free ride
I just want what I worked for all my life
While the politicians spend our money
Like its all for free
They act like millionaires its plain to see
While they're getting driven round in their limousines
Tell me how the hell they're looking out for you and me.
v2
I see the federal chairman on T.V.
Says the interest rates are at an all time low
How is that supposed to encourage me
When the banks wont lend me money anyhow.
Chorus
I ain't asking no one for a free ride
I just want what I worked for all my life
While the politicians spend our money
Like its all for free
They act like millionaires its plain to see
While they're getting driven round in their limousines
Tell me how the hell they're looking out for you and me.
v3
All I want is a job and a paycheck
Just enough to support my family
Quit sending all our good jobs overseas
Start working for us all to bring them back
Chorus
I ain't asking no one for a free ride
I just want what I worked for all my life
While the politicians spend our money
Like its all for free
They act like millionaires its plain to see
While they're getting driven round in their limousines
Tell me how the hell they're looking out for you and me

Nite...

Good lyrics....good thoughts.

Question for ya...Do you have any of this stuff set to music where we could hear melody line, etc?

It may be me, but, I always end up reading your stuff the same way each time. From song to song they all seem to flow the same to me.

Maybe they really all do have the same feel, but probably they don't.

Got any of these available to hear?

Love the thoughts, would love to hear the sound.

Be Blessed!

Hey Nite,

I know your stuff had different melody lines, you write too good for them not too :)

I just meant for my benefit, I'd love to hear some of them. I tend to get one type of melody stuck in my head when I read your stuff. (my narrowness) and it would be great to hear it sung the way you meant it.

Be Blessed!
