What is Wrong with the World Today?

What is wrong with the world today?
It doesn't make sense in any way.
Who's your daddy?
He's a shmuck
The ice is melting
We're out of luck.

Corporate giants get bailed out
While honest folks go without
Unemployment, high inflation
This country needs resuscitation.

Global warming, air pollution
Economic revolution?
Where's Obama's grand solution?

Oprah, Oprah, she's the one
She know how to get things done.
Go Oprah. Go Oprah. Go Oprah.

Run, run, he's got a gun
He'll shoot your brains out just for fun.
Get down. Get down. There's a bomb around.
It's gonna blow us to funky town.

Mortar shells and terror squad
Murder in the name of God
Improvised explosive device
Goodness gracious---that's not nice.

Wife beaters, corporate cheaters
Child molesters, crazy leaders
Gangs and drugs, sex and greed
Blind ambition to succeed.

Stimulus billions had banks overjoyed
But most of us are still unemployed.
The rich get cocky and seldom share
The rest of us can't afford health care.

Bang, Bang, Golly Gee
Who killed decency?
What happened to responsibility?
Slog your blog and sling your bling
No respect for anything.

I loved the Beatles but they're half dead
Sergeant Pepper got shot in the head.
Paul McCartney---I still love you.
Isn't there anything you can do/

Happiness is a warm gun---yah, yah, yah.

Politicians pass the buck
Capital Hill runs amuck
Nuclear waste, internet smut
Drill a tatoo upon your butt.

Identity stealers, political nitwits,
Wheeler dealers, celebrity misfits,
Hypocrites and ecstasy bars
What's next---Sara Palin dancing with the stars?

Middle East-- where's the peace?
A bloody war that will not cease.
AIDS invades like death crusades
Eight year olds toss hand grenades.

Daddy, Daddy, get outta the way,
I'm gonna blow up a bus today.

What is wrong with the world today?
It doesn't make sense in any way.
King of Pop died; lots of people cried
But who gives a damn about genocide.

Boomers ruled but now we're scientologists
We've got RVs and gastroenterologists
Who is left to give peace a chance
Brittany and Paris in their underpants?

What about our sons and daughters
Can they survive these troubled waters?
We've all gone mad or so it seems
Who screwed up our hopes and dreams?

Hey dude, we're screwed, We're really, really screwed.

We're in a black hole, out of control
The ice is melting, save your soul.
The ice is melting, save your soul.
