Song Description

Rising prices affect Victor's customer relations early days in his corner store

Story Behind the Song

Rising prices were part and parcel of those heady, boom times in the 1980's, subject of the Paper Fortune$ story

Lyrics

Worry for the Future Victor Freedom
Sorry guys they?ve all gone up again, bread, milk and cheese
The bloody manufacturer seems to have us on our knees
5 cents here and ten cents there, I worry for the nation
Politicians aren?t upset, but then they need inflation

It fills their coffers up with tax
Saves fat cats from the pruning axe
Pity is things become so lax
You worry for the future

You know the place just down the road sold for 300 grand
That?s twice the top price paid last year, will people understand
This isn?t like inflation bouts we?ve been part of before
The rich are making hay from this while working-class stay poor
It fills their coffers up with tax
Saves fat cats from the pruning axe
Pity is things become so lax
You worry for the future

You wonder what the long-term holds, I think of things that way
What kind of tomorrow will we leave our kids today?
Charge too much for a loaf of bread
They?ll go and bake their own instead
Yes, even though we may be dead
You worry for the future

It fills their coffers up with tax
Saves fat cats from the pruning axe
Pity is things become so lax
You worry for the future

It fills their coffers up with tax
Saves fat cats from the pruning axe
Pity is things become so lax
You worry for the future
