FREE CEE dear you i aint got a clue

          DEAR YOU, I AIN'T GOT A CLUE

There's got to be someone to come along and do what needs to be done
the good Lord knows I certainly ain't the one
there's a lot of things I don't know
but I know it ain't me and it ain't even Joe

you know Joe, the one who hangs out screaming words that make too much sense
and so he goes around knocking over every white picket fence
he's angry because this world needs a hammer and some nails
or at least a new coat of paint if all else fails

so Joe and I have given up all of our hope
and both of us are busy trying to find a way to cope
we're attempting to do what seems impossible to do
and that is to help people who need help like me, Joe and you

there are babies crying because they are going unfed
there are elders who weren't cared for properly who are now unfortunately dead
lobbyists and slum lords are heartless at best
and the rest of us are all being put to a test

the test consists of discovering how much we can take
and how much heartache and misfortune the miscreants can make
while millionaires are unwilling to help those in need
the ones who bow at the unholy alter of greed

i'm almost certain there ain't a soul alive who can do anything to change a thing
while Joe and me just wait for the telephone to ring
we want someone to tell us they found someone to to what we need them to do
and we both ask, beg and inquire, could that someone be you?
