Jackie Greene – Modern Lives lyrics

Well I called up the President
And asked him where the money went
He told me that it all got spent
Long before I ever learned to drive
“How’s that kid, you satisfied?”
Oh now do us all a favor and go
Buzz along your modern life.”

Well I turned on the evening news
Another white man sings the blues
Telling me I’m gonna lose
Unless we all wake up and choose a side.
“C’mon son, where’s your pride?”
Well sir, it’s hard to catch my breath
When I been drowning in my modern life.

No you can’t fool me,
Your Time Square looks like a graveyard
I got a billboard for my headstone
And a car horn for my eulogy.

I don’t know but it’s been said
There’s bound to be good times ahead
You might get rich, you might get dead
Either way, I’m waiting for a sign
Oh my lord, you know I’m trying.
But it don’t feel like easy winning
When I’m spinning in my modern life.

Well you can’t fool me,
Your Time Square looks like a graveyard
I got a billboard for my headstone
And a car horn for my eulogy.

Well I called up the President
And asked him where the money went
He told me that it all was spent
Long before I ever learned to drive
“How’s that kid, you satisfied?”
Oh Now do us all a favor and go
Buzz along your modern life.”
Wont you do us all a favor
And go buzz on your modern life.
