The Lyrics

The State Of Arizona to The Obama Administration about Senate Bill 1070
Don't bother cryin', don't bother callin'
It's all over now, you did your stallin'
The trust we once felt, we don't feel anymore for you
This time we're even closin' the door for you

You clocked out, then tied us down
But we'll be well off
If you, you don't come around

Where were you when we needed you
Where were you when we wanted you
Where were you when we needed you
Where

Oh you shook us good, you tried to fight it
But it's a no brainer, you're already one sided
Tried workin' with you, but went on without you
We've spent a long time learnin' to doubt you

The days got rough, and you disappeared
And we took all the heat
But look, look who's poundin' air

Where were you when we needed you
Where were you when we wanted you
Where were you when we needed you
Where

Your song has been sung, your case has been filed
We know now that mod-es-ty, isn't your style
The last time we saw you, we found it amusing
Your view hadn't changed to, the law you're abusing

Oh times were tough, and we couldn't mate
Now you're rippin' back
But hey, hey it's too late

Where were you when we needed you
Where were you when we wanted you
Where were you when we needed you
Where

Where were you when we needed you
Where were you when we wanted you
Where were you when we needed you
Where
