about

Written during the first first recession under George W. Bush, AKA Herbert Hoover Jr. Unfortunately, The Great Depression's Back.

lyrics

The great depression never went a way
It hid out in poorer sections waiting for me to come it's way
I thought my nice paying job would keep me safe. Good God I was so naïve
When the crunch came down I was out on the street have to hit the concrete
Now times are hard fish ain't biting. The wanted ads aren't too inviting
Now the thin cow's gonna have to eat the fat. Pinch you wallets people and hold onto your hats
Because The Great Depression, The Great Depression's back!

Look at sky wish on a star pray they'll bring back old FDR
But FDR won't lend a dime to me
See those limousines go by at least their taxes won't be too high
Guess it's good to see someone's getting lucky
But it's hard to see people living large when Herbert Hoover Junior's back in charge
All my friends are wearing a frown. I'm a one man shanty-town
Because The Great Depression, The Great Depression's back
The Great Depression, The Great Depression's
Back it's back it'll take your cash if you get something together it'll fall apart fast
Get back get back it'll spread like a rash and the welfare cutoff comes down like an axe
It's back it's back here the market crash because the stockbroker couldn't stick to the facts
And the whole world wants to kick your ass
Because The Great Depression, The Great Depression's back
The Great Depression, The Great Depression's
Oh yeah the great depression
The Great Depression, The Great Depression's back
