Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Still Ain't Satisfied (Bonnie Lockhart)
Here's Bonnie Lockhart's updated version of "Still Ain't Satisfied."

Still Ain't Satisfied
Rewrite for the 99% Movement
Bonnie Lockhart

Democrats won in Oh Eight, but I still ain't satisfied,
'Cause we still got a corporate state, and I still. . .
       It's not the party of the hour
       It's the Wall Street gang that's got the power

And I still ain't, woa, they lied (x3)
And I still ain't satisfied.

We're working hard to fight cut backs, but I still. . . .
Until Wells Fargo pays their tax, and I still. . .
If we taxed the banks and the very wealthy
Our safety net would still be healthy. . .

We saw "An Inconvenient Truth" but I still. . .
'Cause carbon's going through the roof, and I still. . .
When lobbies buy our politicians
They will not stop toxic emissions . . .

They say the Iraq war is done, but I still. . .
'Cause they're rattling sabers at Iran, and I still. . .
We don't need war, we don't need empire
Let's let the dove replace the vampire. . .

To hear the tune with original words,

(lots of good songs here)

Bonnie Lockhart singing updated "Still Ain't Satisfied":

The women of Occupella uphold the tradition of activist singing here in Northern California. I really enjoy their singing.
