I'll Tell You What [(c) Joe Kretschmer, 2/3/09]

Well, I don't understand the world today
Seems like nothin' ever goes my way
I gotta work when I wanna play
Always gotta go when I wanna stay

Chorus: (3rd line different each time)
Lordy, Mama, I'll tell you what
I got a feelin' down in my gut
My boss is crazy and he oughta be shot
Lordy, Mama, I'll tell you what

The country's in one helluva mess
How it's gonna end is anyone's guess
Every politician thinks he knows best
Y'know, I just wish they'd give it a rest

Lordy, Mama, I'll tell you what
I got a feelin' down in my gut
Our Congressman is a certified nut
Lordy, Mama, I'll tell you what

[bridge]
The people on the TV tell ya what you oughta do
But when they get off by themselves, they know they ain't got a clue...

I guess I'll just keep pluggin' along
Mindin' my business and hummin' a song
Wrong is right and right is wrong
New York City to old Hong Kong

Lordy, Mama, I'll tell you what
I got a feelin' down in my gut
Our preacher is a bastard and his wife's a slut
Lordy, Mama, I'll tell you what
[trail off with:]
The dullest knife makes the deepest cut
Ain't that just a kick in the butt?
High-rise condo to a little old hut...
