Occupy Wall Street Song - So Many, So Wrong by Teri Sue Wolf



Occupy Wall Street Song - So Many, So Wrong by Teri Sue Wolf

LYRICS:

VERSE 1:
In war, you're told to shoot or die.
No one's s'posed to ask 'em why.
Everybody ordered, "Just go along,
And sing our happy marching song."
What do you do when so many are so wrong?

VERSE 2:
What about starvation on this earth?
Wall Street only cares about net worth.
Everybody told, "Just go along.
Get your bonuses. Sing our money song."
That's what you do when so many are so wrong.

CHORUS 1:
Fish south of New Orleans were killed.
Oilmen cheerin', "Drill, baby, drill!"
Everybody told, "Just drive along.
To keep your car goin', sing our drilling song."

VERSE 3:
Now, one percent rule the human race.
Don't seem to care who or what they displace.
Use up the earth, be fruitful, multiply.
If they hurry past, won't have to see 'em die.
That's what they do when so few are so wrong.

VERSE 4:
Factories are closing every day.
All we can do is hope and pray.
Manufacturing jobs are gone,
Outsourced to China and Vietnam.
What do you do when so many are so wrong?

CHORUS 2:
Kids go to college, put in their years,
Borrowing money, hiding their fears.
All that work and what do they get?
Graduation to a life of debt.

VERSE 5:
Air gets more polluted, yellow skies.
Can we be so blind, can't see our demise?
Carbon footprints in oily sands.
Climate gettin' hotter 'cross every land.
What do you do when so many are so wrong?

CHORUS 3:
So, what's the answer? What's the solution?
Is it extinction or revolution?
Only we can decide.
Ain't nowhere anyone can hide.
So, here's what we do when so many are so wrong:
We gotta get together and sing a better song. I say it now...
We gotta get together and sing a better song.
