We've Been Through Some Crappy Times Before - Austin Lounge Lizards
You say the last election didn’t turn out like you planned. You’re feeling blue and clueless, you just don’t understand. You’re sad, sulky, sullen, moping and morose, You’re woefully weak and weary, semi-comatose You stare at your computer screen devoid of any joy and hope, You’re so depressed, you can’t get dressed, You’re noose is up a rope Just remind yourself, when you can’t stand it any more That we’ve been through some crappy times before, We’ve been though some crappy times before Slavery, unbridled knavery and the civil war.
Don’t stop caring, stop despairing, get up off the floor, Because we’ve been through some crappy times before. Intolerable intolerance has swept across the land, The gospel thumping homophobes have got the upper hand. They are peeping though the windows and they are creeping through the door But we’ve been through some crappy times before. We’ve been through some crappy times before. McCarthyism, Prohibition, and the World Wars.
Were up a the creek, the boat is leaking, still we will reach the shore, But we’ve been through some crappy times before. Reassurances that everything is fine It’s been a while since we were a canary in this mine. When you think it’s really bad, it gets a little worse, But keep on looking forward, though we’re going in reverse. We shout out that the emperors aren’t wearing any clothes, He lies so much that you could hang Your laundry from his nose. The fox is in the hen house and the wolf is at the door, But we’ve been thought some Crappy Times before We have been thought crappy times before, Indiscretion, floods, Depression, Vietnam and more.
The sun has set but don’t forget another day is in store. Because we’ve been thought some crappy times before. Yes we’ve been though some crappy times before Yes, we’ve been though some Crappy times before.
