POLITICAL PROMISES

© Words & Music by Gregory W Irish  10-06-2011

 

YOU SAY YOU CAN FIX UNEMPLOYMENT, BUT MORE HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS.

IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BOTHER YOU ‘CAUSE YOU HANG OUT WITH THE SNOBS.

YOU PROMISE US THIS, YOU PROMISE US THOSE,

WHAT WE’LL RECEIVE,   ONLY GOD KNOWS.

BECAUSE THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.

 

YOU SAY THE WAR HAS ENDED, AND OUR SOLDIERS ARE COMING HOME.

THEY WHY ARE THEIR WIVES AND FAMILIES, SITTING AT HOME ALL ALONE?

YOU PROMISE US THIS, YOU PROMISE US THOSE,

WHAT WE’LL RECEIVE,   ONLY GOD KNOWS.

BECAUSE THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.

 

WE CAME TO YOU WITH HOPES, THAT YOU WOULD SIGN OUR BILL.

BUT SINCE THAT NEVER HAPPENED WE WISH YOUR MOM HAD USED THE PILL.

YOU PROMISE US THIS, YOU PROMISE US THOSE,

WHAT WE’LL RECEIVE,   ONLY GOD KNOWS.

BECAUSE THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.

 

YOU CALL YOURSELF A POLITICIAN, SOME CALL IT HYPOCRASY.

I SAW YOU GETTING ARRESTED TODAY SO I GUESS I’LL CALL IT THIEVERY.

YOU PROMISE US THIS, YOU PROMISE US THOSE,

WHAT WE’LL RECEIVE,   ONLY GOD KNOWS.

BECAUSE THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.

 

YOU SAY YOU’LL LOWER OUR TAXES, AND LOWER THE PRICE OF GAS.

YOU BETTER HONOR YOUR PROMISES,          OR YOU CAN KISS MY ASS.

YOU PROMISE US THIS, YOU PROMISE US THOSE,

WHAT WE’LL RECEIVE,   ONLY GOD KNOWS.

BECAUSE THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.

 

WE ONLY ASKED YOU TO HELP US OUT SO THIS SHOULD NOT BE A SURPRISE.

YOU KNOW I WOULDN’T BELIEVE YOU,        IF YOUR TONGUE CAME NOTORIZED.

YOU PROMISE US THIS, YOU PROMISE US THOSE,

WHAT WE’LL RECEIVE,   ONLY GOD KNOWS.

BECAUSE THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.

BECAUSE THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.

YOU KNOW THEY’RE POLITICAL PROMISES.
