Lyrics:


You work all your life just to make ends meet
Forget about a pension and Social Security
You'll be working until you're eighty - that's downward mobility

No, it's not OK
There's a better way
Main Street's brighter day
Let's start it here on Wall Street

The game is stacked in the 1%'s favor
And we the 99 are not allowed at the table
Well the GDP says that there is wealth being created
But it floats to the top away from those who generate it

No, it's not OK
There's a better way
Main Street's brighter day
Let's start it here on Wall Street

They know that to conquer they must first divide
So they stoke up discontentment with those who are unionized
Sure they have nice pensions and sane working hours too
But instead of tearing them down why not build up me and you?
Because you deserve the same things for your labor
And the 99% are your friends and neighbors

No, it's not OK
There's a better way
Main Street's brighter day
Let's start it here on Wall Street

We don't want a handout we just want what we've earned
And a fair shake for those who have been so badly burned
Holding criminals responsible: what could be more mainstream?
It's time to stop the theft of the American Dream
