(To tune of “Two for the Road,” by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer, from the film (1967) of the same name, starring Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney.)

If you’re tired of all you see
Come occupy Wall Street with me
We’ll challenge corporate-ocracy
Protest its warped milieu

In New York, and Chicago, and L.A.
Wherever they promote the creed
Worshipping greed
And seeking wealth, beyond all need

 It isn’t that we’re anarchists
And no, we aren’t communists
But that the one percent persists
Wanting the whole darn pie

As long as money gets the nod
And profit is the end-of-all God
Then, we will occupy.

Until the system is more fair
And people once again earn their just share
We will occupy.
