The alarm clock rings but you don't move
But the wife gets up and puts on her uniform
You hear her in the bathroom
Cause she's got that nagging cough
You put your head under the pillow
To forget you've been laid off
Suburban king
Suburban king
You had it printed on your van
Cause it had a pretty ring
Suburban king

The union man said you'd be recalled
But the company up and moved to taiwan
You counted on the pension plan
But you were out of luck
The union says you only qualify
For twenty-five bucks

Suburban king
Suburban king
You had it printed on your van
Cause it had a pretty ring
Suburban king
Suburban king

Your american dream didn't mean a thing
Suburban king

From the album "tropico"
