The Lyrics

Written during the first Bush administrattion. Revised for the second.
How often at night
When the heavens are bright
Do I gaze at the flickering stars...
Then I pack up my gear
And I drink one last beer
And I go off to sleep in my car...

I'm homeless again
With my fiscally handicapped friends
We're all drunks and perverts
'Cause we've all lost our shirts
And our jobs so we're homeless again

Well, when I used to work
As a post office clerk
I was happy with wife, kids and home
On the streets now I beg
'Cause I put our nest egg
With the dotcoms, the Enrons and clones

I'm homeless again
With my fiscally handicapped friends
We're all drunks and perverts
'Cause we've all lost our shirts
And our jobs so we're homeless again

Well, when I hit the skids,
Lost my job, wife and kids
I was heading for trouble, no doubt
Now I'm filled with remorse
Ever since my divorce
And since my unemployment's run out

I'm homeless again
With my fiscally handicapped friends
We're all drunks and perverts
'Cause we've all lost our shirts
And our jobs so we're homeless again

Well, when Bush caught Saddam
I thought that was the bomb
Yanked that rat out of that spider hole
Now he's shaved, now he's fed
Got a nice comfy bed
And I'm freezing out here in the cold

Now Christmas is here
It's that time of the year
Every shopper's got big bucks to spend
I'll be rattling my cup
Till somebody stands up
For America's homeless again

I'm homeless again
The recovery's just 'round the bend
I know we've got bad breath
But we're freezing to death
On your streets 'cause we're homeless again

Fine job, Bob.

Thank you, Melhi, I appreciate it. Why is the richest country in the world still struggling with this problem? I think maybe we need some neocompassion in our neoconservatism. d;:^/

(To Bob Gomez) I agree with you because we need to donate to charities, such as Christian organizations. We also need to build a ton of homless shelters across the nation.
