Lyrics

If all the toys from China
Were fully free of lead
If all the gold on Wall Street
Paid off the national debt
If every add on TV
Showed what you'd really get
The poor would still be with us
And we would still forget
We would still forget
We would still forget

If politicians told the truth
If mail got delivered on time
If you never lost your keys
If the children never whined
If every day was a sleep-in day
And we always felt full and fine
The poor would still be with us
An' we'd still clear 'em from our mind
Clear 'em from our mind
Clear 'em from
Clear 'em from our mind

There is somethin' about comfort
It blinds us, closes our ears
When we feel no pain
We do not share their tears

I'm feelin' insulated
My job is secure
I ain't worried 'bout one thing
No immigrants near here
My kids speak perfect English
You know I voted right
Got lots of ammunition
I sleep real good at night
Those who want a handout
Or a hand up- either way
It's a cruel, cruel world
Go get your own
Or jus' go away
Jus' go away
Jus' go away
