Another day, another dollar

But what’s a dollar worth?

Can’t climb very high on but a

Dollar a day

Everything has a price

Fresh beans and rice

Go together for a good dinner

However, your dollar’s gone; a dollar is dinner

Interesting how a dollar only gets you

Just one more day

Kids on the street fight for a dollar

Loser licks his wounds, his own blood for dinner

Mum’s dollar wasn’t enough, Dad drank it

Never mind that man in a suit

Over beyond the fence

Pristine, perfect

Quickly, quietly, he walks away

Rare, that sight in this town

So many people, so much pain

Too much to bear for a man with money

Usually the suits stay away

Violence, venom, and vomit

Won’t entice a rich man to stay

X number of dollars is what they make in a day

You and I won’t see a penny

Zeitgeist of today
