    99% (Ninety Nine Percent) 

    I got something 

    I got it in the bag 

    Don’t look at me mister 

    You’'d be better off dead 

    We got busted for planning 

    It'’s in the back of my head 

    We got morning in the coffee yeah 

    The blues is back in bed 

    Mama’'s in the kitchen 

    Papa hit the sack 

    Up all night he’s looking 

    But no one calls him back 

    Do we pay for groceries? 

    Or do we pay the rent? 

    Scrounging in the garbage 

    We'’re the 99% 

    Occupy corruption 

    Overtake and lead 

    Even Jesus angered 

    When he tossed away the greed 

    Lining up for lunch 

    People'’s right should rule 

    Lining up for jobs 

    Corporate wrongs so cruel 

    Watching our destruction 

    Or are the 99 ahead? 

    We won'’t lost the world to evil 

    But to those who watch instead 

    My gal’s on piano 

    She playing it real well 

    Musing on this blues riff 

    As we drift on down to hell 

    We dream of baskets and the babies 

    Dream of corn and the gravies 

    Living on empties 

    Living on maybe, maybe, maybes 

    Nothing to fall back on 

    On nothing to depend 

    We gotta sweet sense 

    We got no cents 

    We gotta sixth sense 

    We got no sense 

    We gotta sweet sense
