Less Than Jake – National Anthem lyrics

Does being in debt feel just like a long lost friend?
Well just wait around 'cause the desperation's kicking in
Yeah it's already starting to mix with one of my best pieces of fiction
And it's called "I'll be getting by and I'll make ends meet"
Does the 40-hour week have you bent at the knees
And you can't even see that everything's kept just out of reach

Ever get that funny feeling that your future's not going to be bought cheap
And that for sale sign that's hanging 'round your neck might as well spell defeat

Yeah it's already starting to mix with one of my best pieces of fiction
And it's called "I'll be getting by and I'll make ends meet"
Does the forty hour week have you bent at the knees and you can't even see that everything's kept just out of reach

My American dream is to have it, a little bit better than my parents ever had it

My American dream is to have it, a little bit better than my parents ever had it

My American dream is to have it, a little bit better than it's just a force of habit

My American dream is to have it a little bit, better than my parents ever had it.
