Utah Phillips – Stupid’s Song (i Have Led A Good Life) Lyrics

I have lived a good life full of peace and quiet
I shall have an old age full of rum and riot
I have been a good lad, careful and artistic
I shall have an old age coarse and anarchistic
Once I paid my taxes and followed every rule
Banker boss and beauracrat thought my a willing tool
I voted Democratic and paid the Church it’s due
All those swine will have to find some other chump to screw
Of interest, banks and credit, Insurance, tax and rent
Of lawyers, agents, generals and clerics I repent
With fist for corporation and scorn for those elected
I will be an old bum, loved but unrespected
