Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
Oh. Ooh yeah, yeah.

Well it's the same old story,
But it never made a lick of sense to me.
No, no, no. Tell 'em.
How it's always on the workin' man,
Pay for everything we never see.
Well you can call it what you like,
But where I come from they call it the squeeze.

All this talk about some changes,
It's just politicians promising the moon.
Wooh, tell 'em.
So it's do without, it's in and out
The fools on the hill
Gonna need more soon, yeah.
Yeah you can call it what you like,
But where I come from they call it the squeeze.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
Put the squeeze on me.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
They're squeezin' me and you.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.

They say "don't drink the water,
Could be something in your coffee or your tea."
Ooh yeah, and who knows just what's in the air,
You take a chance now every time you breathe.
You can call it what you like,
But where I come from they call it the squeeze.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
Put the squeeze on me.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
You know I put the squeeze on me and you.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
Put the squeeze on you.
They gonna put the squeeze on ya, ooh.

Oh you work two jobs to get ahead,
You wind up with less than you had before.
You know what I mean.
And if money can't buy happiness,
Then why do I keep needin' more and more?
Needin' more and more.
Tell 'em, tell 'em, tell 'em.
You can call it what you like,
But where I come from they call it the squeeze.
That don't make it right.
Just don't give up, don't give in.
Call it anything you like.
Where I come from, they call it the squeeze.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
Put the squeeze on me.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
Now you know they put the squeeze on you.
Squeeze yeah.
Ah, put the squeeze on me, baby.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, yeah.
Me and you, me and you, me and you.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze.
Squeeze on you.
Well they have to put the squeeze on me.
