The Lyrics

If you don't know "Let it Rock", you can listen to top 40 radio or find it on YouTube. Very catchy song. It's storming up the Billboard Hot 100 almost as fast as the Dow is falling.
I see a murky fate
In this country's future
Congress bought Colgate
Wall Street needed sutures
Tried to brush it off
Fund-raising through taxes it's not fair
It's not fair, it's not fair

Many bought timeshares
Cash was never there
Now we're all in debt
And I'm scared

That soon when I'm online
I will wait for hours
Just for bread, pork rinds,
And a public shower
And we'll hear the scoff
Of people in power:
"Get a job, get a job, get a job"

Now they run to Chase
Flee from the stock market
Funds are up in space
NASA wants to park its
Cosmic boats that cost
A bit above eight figures
Up on Mars, up on Mars, that's right Mars

And investors bailed
The job market's frail
Seems the Martian plan's
Gonna fail

I fear when I'm on line
My mood will be sour
I will moan and whine
Get threatened and cower
And I'll hear advice
From ivory towers:
"Get a job, get a job, get a job"

Wise words
Were ignored
Reag adored
Roos abhorred
I can't get a job when I can't afford
To dry clean and good jobs went to Bangalore
And Singapore
And many more
Far places for exploiting poor
Workers who live on ninety-four
Cents in a day, and they're fighting for
Simple jobs that could
Be supporting me
But the bottom line is the most important thing
And Congress won't regulate them like Warren G
It's not right like orange pee
System could use a warranty

I think when I'm on line
I will stand with lawyers
Who were shocked to find
They have no employers
And they spent a lot
Thus the soul destroying:
"Get a job, get a job, get a job"

And when we're all on line
Lehman chief won't be there
He will be just fine
That just doesn't seem fair
He might join the swine
Telling those in despair:
"Get a job, get a job, get a job

You deadbeat slobs
Get a job, get a job
Get a job, get a job"

I don't want to see my vision, I'm wishin'
We'll accomplish the, right mission
I guess the sub-prime mess requires time stitchin'
Our wounds, it's not a mere nuisance
Let's do this, try not to screw this
Up again, need real solutions

I wish we could wave a magic wand
And it would make these problems gone
But we can't wave a wand and expect
To fix this wreck
