Lyrics

My R is Up My A
© JD Carroll

My pockets have been picked by a Wall Street scoundrel
now he says he's lost all my dough.
There're some things you just can't repay.

I was hoping to cash in my IRA pension
and quietly close this show
but now it looks like my R is Up My A.

My wheels they are spinnin'
but I'm gettin' nowhere.
A chain is just a strong as it's weakest link.

How far is it to Detroit
or maybe New Orleans?
The rich keep gettin' richer
while the middle class just shrinks.

I'm bailing out banks that charge me Mafia intrest
now they won't loan me a dime.
Looks like the carnivals back in town.

Financial magicians, concerned politicians
all claiming to be friends of mine.
But this all feels like just another shke down.

My wheels they are spinnin'
but I'm gettin' nowhere.
A chain is just a strong as it's weakest link.

How far is it to Philly
or maybe NYC?
The poor keep getting poorer
while the middle class just shrinks.

My company just filed for bankruptcyproceedings
but no one is protecting me.
I only have fifteen years on the line.

Jobs evaporating, prices escalating
I'm struggling to make ends meet.
My canary jst croaked in my coal mine.

My wheels they are spinnin'
but I'm gettin' nowhere.
A chain is just a strong as it's weakest link.

How far is it to Boston?
or maybe Chicago.
The revolution will be starting
a lot sooner than you think.

How far is it to Nashville
or maybe Baltimore?
The revolution will be starting
a lot sooner than you think.
