TRICKLE DOWN BLUES
© D. Mark Ragg (2003)


For forty hours I?m pushing this broom.
I?m trying to pay my rent,
For forty hour I?m pushing this broom.
And I still can?t save a cent.
I?m down,
I feel pushed around.
Oh. This economy may work.
But it sure won?t trickle down.

My momma worked for sixty hours
Just to send me through school
Now thanks to outsourcing,
I work with this broom and these tools
I?m down,
I feel pushed around.
Oh. This economy may work.
But it sure won?t trickle down.

Bridge
I?m sittin? on the dock of the bay
Watching that money roll out to see
I look at those yachts
And it gives me this thought
Hey where?s that money that should have been left over for me.

Forty hours of searching,
Reading in Forbes to see
Who is my boss
but it don?t make sense to me.
I?m down,
I feel pushed around.
Oh. This economy may work.
But it sure won?t trickle down.
