Music and Meaning…

A bitch woke up with this song playing in my head…

Every morning
Every evening
Ain't we got fun?
Not much money
Oh but honey
Ain't We Got Fun?
The rent's unpaid dear
We have'nt a bus
But smiles were made dear
For people like us!

In the winter
In the summer
Don't we have fun?
Times are bum and getting bummer
Still we have fun!
There's nothing surer
The rich get rich and the poor get children


In the meantime
In between time
Ain't we got fun?!?


…and John McCain reading from the Herbert Hoover Happy Days Are Here Again ‘Cause I Said So, Damnit Playbook of Absolute Delusional Bullshit (National Despair and Guaranteed Suffering Edition Volume II) while appearing live on two morning chat shows at the same time.
