Funkytown, nasty (Hey, listen to the man) Yeah, I'm the Godfather (baby) People, people We got to get over Before we go under People, people We got to get over Before we go under Hey, country Didn't say what you meant Just changed Brand new funky President Stock market going up Jobs going down And ain't no funking Jobs to be found Taxes keep going up I changed from a glass Now I drink out of a paper cup It's getting bad People, people We got to get over Before we go under Listen to me Let's get together and raise Let's get together And get some land Raise our food like the man Save our money like the Mob Put up a fight down on the job
