Ninety-Nine
Lyrics
bob and mary bought themselves a house
a nice neighborhood
it was their american dream come true
like the little train that could
after the cancer the foreclosure
way below the water-line
they are the ninety-nine

tony is a forklift driver
he moves that merchandise all day
downsize down at the factory
cut his benefits and pay
the shareholders are all smiling
they've increased their bottom line
he is the ninety-nine

the right to free assembly
the right to organize
to exercise democracy
the right to occupy
we are the ninety-nine

rachel is a waitress
little waterside café
a single mom with two kids at home
barely makes a living wage
in a so-called right-to-work state
the governor says she's doing fine
she is the ninety-nine

donald had a hardware store
worked there with his dad
supermart moved in next door
overnight it all went bad
it almost broke his heart to hang
that "out of business "sign
he is the ninety-nine

the right to free assembly
the right to organize
to exercise democracy
the right to occupy
we are the ninety-nine

construction worker, soldier, sailor
worker in a shop
school-teacher, health care provider
fireman and cop
your retirement plan is just
some some speculators dime
you are the ninety-nine

we are the ninety-nine
we are the ninety-nine
