BROKE AND, ONE MORE WORD AND I’D BE CHOKIN’
KINDER WORDS WERE NEVER SPOKEN
JUST ONE WORD, I WAS AWOKEN

HIRED, ‘CAUSE YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE ADMIRED
CLIMB THAT LADDER EVER HIGHER
SLIP ON CAMERA, YOU’LL BE FIRED

HOW WE BOW, ALL THIS TIME THOUGHT I WAS FREE NOW
MY BOSS TRIED TO SELL TO ME HOW
SOMEONE’S HIRED TO CHECK MY PEE NOW

CHORUS

I WANNA’ LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY
I WANNA’ GIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY
WE OUGHTA’ LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY
WE GOTTA’ LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY
OR WE DON’T LIVE AT ALL

FOR US, GOD MADE MEDICINE TO CURE US
STILL, OUR PRESIDENTS IGNORE US
MAYBE PRISON WILL RESTORE US

FUNNY, IN THIS LAND OF MILK AND HONEY
STICKY SWEET, BUT KINDA’ RUNNY
WHO’S IN CHARGE OF ALL THE MONEY?

SUPPORT US, DON’T TELL ME THEY CAN’T AFFORD US
LEVEES BROKE AND THEY IGNORED US
BUDGETS CHOKE ON ALL THE WAR STUFF

CHORUS

LURE US, CALL US ON THE PHONE AND BORE US
FIRST THEY GAVE ME THEIR ASSURANCE
THEN THEY CANCELLED MY INSURANCE
