Everyone says there must be something better
They look over their shoulder and wipe the dust of their sweater
Not the dust of manual labor
From sitting on a shelf, contact paper
No better way to make change that sit in a chair
Flip through channels
Watch the news
Anger builds up and all that stands is your hair
Got your pink slip today
Straight out of the blue?
It's right in the middle of the blue
Since it's wasn't you,
Didn't expect it's show up on your bay
Push it off,
Yeah, keep pushing it off
Yeah, that's a thought
President of the United States
Who else has made you a slave?
Yet your still in your chair,
Flipping through channels
Watching the news
Hair is still standing
You don't know?
Sit in your chair
Try to turn the wheel?
Wish you could steal?
That's a great idea!
Get out of your chair
Long enough to adjust your belt
Too much junk?
Revenge, not sure how it's dealt?
Go outside and run a lap
Important to keep your mind on track
Next time you shop
That money in your wallet
Better to go a mom/pop shop around the block
Next time you need a loan
Try a local credit union
Next time you go out to eat
Pick a local eatery
Where there's a will there's a way
To read and ignore this would be a damn shame
