GUEST,Joe_F Songs about truly pissed-off people (137* d) RE: Songs about truly pissed-off people 22 Apr 06

Rodentred: Cf.:

Good businessmen have often said
Always trim your costs if you're in the red
Well, come shake hands with an overhead
I'm in the sidings now.
If your money-tree will bear no fruit
Never blame the man who tends the root
But take your knife to the tender shoot
I'm in the sidings now.

-- [IN THE SIDINGS] by Cyril Tawney of blessed memory, surely a master of the pissed-off song; it's a wonder he did not show up earlier in this thread:

CHICKEN ON A RAFT on a Monday morning,
Oh what a terrible sight to see...

SALLY, FREE AND EASY, That should be her name
When my body's landed, Hope she dies of shame.

The hand that reaches out for yours
Can only close on a stranger's palm instead
As I lie on my bitter-sweet bed, my love,...

The finest ship that sailed the sea
Is still a prison for the likes of me....

If only the birds would booze
If only the sun was a party-giver
If I could just lend someone else my live

--- Joe Fineman
