The Lyrics

Ooh, lady, do you know what's so great?
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state
In Heaven, charity elates
We know Heaven is a welfare state
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state

We don’t have to scrounge
Thanks to welfare, life’s more of a lounge
Sharing makes us thrive
We don't have to live on the streets outside

No sweat in a factory room
Humans weren’t meant to work like mules
We were made to gaze the stars above
And to enjoy our lives in waves of love

Ooh, lady, do you know what's so great?
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state
In Heaven, charity elates
We know Heaven is a welfare state
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state

Thank God for the dole
It keeps me fueled and gives me a home
I’m never in need
Universal income carries me

In this world, we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of giving
Lady, I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore

Ooh, lady, do you know what's so great?
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state
In Heaven, charity elates
We know Heaven is a welfare state

Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state
Heaven
Heaven
Heaven
In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of giving
Lady, I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore
Heaven

Ooh, lady, do you know what's so great?
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state
In Heaven, charity elates
We know Heaven is a welfare state
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state
Ooh, Heaven is a welfare state

Anyone naïve enough to believe they can live well off of Universal Basic Income should just stay in their mommy's basement and hope she has a long life.

didn't good things happen in places where UBI was tested?

Where do you think all government money comes from?

if California was a country, it would be the 5th largest economy in the world, so mocking that state doesn't come across as a good argument on this issue.
