Bring it on

That's their little style
They'll do it for a hundred whiles
Now pay five dollars to get in
Now, I see your

Why don't you come back to the schoolyard?
I can't make it heads or tails of this
I'm over it now
That was a long problem but we solved it

The town is rich again
We've discovered oil underneath, under Gramie's old hen
The little black stuff that came out from the sewer, it was
Not manure but, we were now not poor

I'm imagining a time of love
I'm imagining a hateful time
Won't you come with me and learn the lessons?
Can't you see?
