They keep talking of the things they'd do if we'd only vote them in
One more dollar and all the bickering and suffering would end.
If you'd sign your 'x' in favour it's three jobs for every man
You can burn your boats, that's what they said,
It seemed they had it planned.
And I hope they haven't forgotten, the promises they made
Cause they said they'd stop the fighting
And they said they would bring peace
And they said they'd find a serum that can cure all our disease.
And they said they'd house the homeless
And put black and white in tune
And they said they'd feed a hungry child
And I hope it's someday soon
Saw a man sleep in an alley lane with a paper for a bed
And the headline shown beneath the man and this is what they read,
"If elected there would be no persons living in the street"
But the paper couldn't even provide shelter for his freezing feet.
And I hope they haven't forgotten, The promises they made
Well they said it would be so different, if we'd would only play their
And I've been playing for so long and I swear it's still the same!
Chorus x 2
