Lyrics
Keep The Change Copyright 2009
Mike Lacey

In the news I read and hear
You'd think the end is near
A daily crisis beating down the door

Got a pile of bills to pay
But we're still the USA
Got through plenty worse than this before


Chorus
A team of clowns has got the reins
Pouring money down the drain
Cheats and fools are making rules
And they can keep the change

In DC there ain't no shame
They're pros at dodging blame
And taking every dollar they can score

They pretend to feel our pain
Then fly on private planes
Living large and spending even more

Chorus 2 (Nothing's gonna stay the same, breaking)

Every day's another plan
Lotta cash is changing hands
Bailing out who made the mess we're in
But there ain't no money tree
It's all from you and me
Time to trim the fat and start again

Chorus 1
Repeat Chorus 2
