lyrics

Middle Class
All these fuckers with their leaf blowers,
Throwing their noise pollution everywhere
While I’m trying to watch the leaves fall through the air
And I could write a letter,
To the local paper
Saying “please would all the middle class
Sit outside and just relax,
Your obsessive need to clean,
Is bothering, those of us,
who like what’s happening”
And suddenly all these fuckers with their riding mowers
Who climb astride for exercise
Will fall to their knees, say “mother nature please
Forgive me, I have sinned against thee
I dressed you up for all to see
Then went inside to watch TV”
And once again, I sat outside in peace
While my lovely neighbors, raked their leaves.
