UNCLE SAM-What’s up with this country?

What’s up with this country?
Something just aint right,
Everybody’s pinching, cause money’s so darn tight
Big fat corporations and their golden parachutes,
Has got my old friend Uncle Sam, just shaking in his boots,
While the well’s running dry, and Spot keeps a howling,
I wonder how were gonna survive paying four bucks a gallon

Apparently we’re all sick, cause they got a pill for everything,
Just watch the evening news, and you’ll see what I mean,
We got: syndromes, dysfunctions, side effects and reductions,
The cost of health care is on the rise and that aint no real surprise,
If you keep on running to the doctor with a runny nose and such,
They’ll probably write you a prescription for running your mouth too much..

Hey Uncle Sam, do you even know who I am,
I’m Joe Six Pack, remember me, I’m that hard working man
Uncle Sam, sometimes it seems that you just don’t give a damn,
I’m just trying to do what’s right, trying to survive….

We got: Governors with hookers,
Senators in the stalls,
President with an intern, a blue dress and all,
Outstanding leaders, high achievers, roll models too,
At night I lay in bed and wonder what were gonna do,
While all this goes on, my wallet keeps on shrinking,
Too much more of this is gonna drive me to drinking…

We got athletes on steroids,
And Hollywood’s in rehab,
Read the morning paper and you’ll see…
Cat eyed face lifts, Botox and big lips,
If I want something super-sized, I’m gonna head over to Mickey D’s,
Do some drinking, and some driving, with the paparazzi on your tail,
You aint got no worries today; all you gotta do is pay the bail….

Hey Uncle Sam, do you even know who I am,
I’m Joe Six Pack, remember me, I’m that hard working man
Uncle Sam, sometimes it seems that you just don’t give a damn,
I’m just trying to do what’s right, trying to survive….

Sincerely,

Bryan Cowsert (Joe Six Pack)

  1. You might send that to Michael Moore too!

    Our government now works to satisfy the needs of the corporate powers, not the American people. It’s all about taking money out of your pockets and putting it in thiers! And they’ll keep doing it until you have no more money! Take care Bryan!
