Iris DeMent's, "Quality Time"
The Lyrics:
When they get around to dinner, they're damn near half dead
So they drive thru McDonald's and put the kids off to bed
But they're upwardly mobile, and everything is fine
'Cause when they do get together, it's quality time

They want stickers on the music, but they want the laws turned around
They want the cops to run Beavis and Butthead outa town
Who They Mention:
Beavis & Butthead (cartoon characters from the 90's)

Iris DeMent's, "Trouble"
The Lyrics:
Let's pour a little whiskey, drink a little gin
Listen to Merle Haggard like he's lovin' me again
Trouble, I'm even in trouble with him
Trouble's where I'm goin'
Trouble's the only place I've ever been

Let's turn off the TV, I'm tired of CNN
Let's throw a little party, invite some sinners in
Who They Mention:
Merle Haggard

Iris DeMent's, "Wasteland of the Free"
The Lyrics:
Living in the wasteland of the free
Where the poor have now become the enemy
Let's blame our troubles on the weak ones
Sounds like some kind of Hitler remedy
Living in the wasteland of the free
We got high school kids runnin' 'round in Calvin Klein and Guess
Who cannot pass a 6th grade reading test
Who They Mention:
Calvin Klein
