THAT’S WHY THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS CRAMPS

THAT’S WHY THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS CRAMPS
(To tune of “That’s Why the Lady is a Tramp,” by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart)

The rich own lobbies and lobbies buy votes
Candidate’s whinny like horses for oats
Media ad-cash determines the quotes
That’s why the middle class has cramps

“Money creates jobs,” those say who play god
“Give us your blessings we’ll spare you the rod”
Bankers kill hopes with a nay not a nod
That’s why the middle class has cramps

About that dream, a house with no debt
Brother forget
You’re hosed
Foreclosed

Our constitution that fine court revamps
That’s why the middle class has cramps

They told you work hard and you’d achieve
Fools who’d believe
No joke
We’re broke

No funds for college or kids’ summer camps
That’s why the middle class has cramps
