Howdy Bill D,
Phillips' notes say that he adapted "I Have Led a Good Life" from an old song. I figure that you have it, but that others out there will be intrigued by your reference. Here it is. I do like Faith Petric's version especially, too.
I have led a good life full of peace and quiet,
Now I shall have an old age full of rum and riot;
Yes, I have been a good lad, careful and artistic;
Now I shall have an old age, coarse and anarchistic.
Once I paid my taxes and followed every rule;
Banker, boss, and bureaucrat thought me a willing tool;
I voted Democratic and paid the church its due;
Now 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 this (action here flashing a certain finger) for corporations and scorn for those elected,
I shall be an old bum, loved but unrespected.
