The Lyrics

They feel justified when profits dive
They explain,
And spit in your eye:
"Times are changin'
Now the poor get squat."
Tax cut fever's comin' at you.
'Cause the rich are back, uh-oh! oh!

Go vote on Tuesday
Against the Right.
Give them no break
On Election Day/Night.
Would the rich invest
On someone who'd lose?
Bush can't fly without seasoning
Without lots of booze, uh-oh! oh!

Yeah, the rich, yeah, the rich
Oh, the rich are back.
Screwed us over, as a matter of fact.
Yeah, the rich, yeah, the rich
Think they're better than you.
That's the way that they move,
It stings when they do.

The can't explain why Bush lacks brains.
Sold his soul,
Lived off his name.
We don't like these
Nimrod fat cats.
If it's tax cuts, they grab it
'Cause the rich are back
