Middle Class Squeeze


A white collar purge, we don’t ask why.
The cost is low, but our price will be high.
Pennies to the poor, troy pounds for the rich.
Stuck in the middle, ain’t life a bitch!

Got us down on our bleedin’ knees!

It’s a middle class squeeze.

Slavin’ for your boss, beggin’ from your bank.
Money for nothin’, for the do-nothin’ chad.
Plain sailin’ on credit, you’re drowin’ in debt.
Keepin’ up with the Jones’, you’re a nervous wreck.

Trousers down, bend over please!

CHORUS

Working 24/7, from eight till late,
Too dumb to complain, left it to chance an’ fate.
Another legal shakedown, from your friendly taxman.
He’s on your case again, takes away your last fraction!

“They’ll” never be happy, never be pleased:

CHORUS

Another legal shakedown, from that “nice taxman”.
Too dumb to complain, leave it to chance an’ fate.
Sailin’ ’round on credit, you’re drowin’ in debt.
They won’t be happy till your x x x
Keepin’ up with the Jones’, it’s an all in bet.
Keepin’ up with the Jones’, it’s breakin’ your neck.
A white collar purge, we don’t know why.
A white collar purge, no one knows why.
Pennies to the poor, troy ounces for the rich.
, life ain’t that bad.
