The New World

This song is a cover of "The New World" by X.
Honest to goodness
The bars weren't open this morning
They must have been voting for
A new president of something

Do you have a quarter?
I said yes because I did
Honest to goodness the tears have been falling
All over the country's face

It was better before before
They voted for what's-his-name
This is supposed to be the new world

It was better before before
They voted for what's-his-name
This is supposed to be the new world

Flint Ford automobile Alabama
Windshield wiper Buffalo New York
Gary Indiana, don't forget the motor city
Baltimore and D.C., now all we need is

Don't forget the motor city
This was supposed to be the new world

Don't forget the motor city
This was supposed to be the new world

All we need is money
Just give us what you can spare
Twenty or thirty pounds of potatoes or twenty or thirty beers
A turkey on thanksgiving like alms for the poor
All we need are the necessities and more

It was better before they voted for what's-his-name
This is supposed to be the new world

It was better before they voted for what's-his-name
This is supposed to be the new world

Don't forget the motor city
This was supposed to be the new world

Don't forget the motor city
This was supposed to be the new world
