The Off-vestment


The wallet’s light, I’m still “penny wise”
I can’t buy that sonny, my hand’s too tight.

The pension’s low, the budget’s a foe…
The pile is rising of the money I owe…

How do we get to eat, if my job has been stripped?
How do we face the heat, if our mortgage has been ripped?

They call it recession, I just claim it unfair…
That high taxation, they’ve given up to care…

The scenario’s bizarre, the environment’s sinister…
There are men at war, and then there are fat ministers…

It’s gonna be better, the hopeless are chanting…
The world ain’t together, the scumbags are ranting…

So the government’s investing, these times are testing…
I’ll put more money in the savings that I’m nesting…

I’m glad I’m hopeful, ‘cuz hope is all I’ve got…
The worst is yet to come, that’s exactly what I thought…

I’m an ordinary man; I wish more happiness than sorrow…
I do what I can; and I hope for a better tomorrow…

I hope this time will pass me by; we’ll take down the off-vestment…
No matter what, the dreams won’t die, we’ll march on self-development!
