( Senior citizen song lyrics )
WE DON'T WANT MUCH
Copyright 2007 - MickTerry.com

[senior citizen]
Now, I never thought too much about unions.
I always was more a management kind of guy.
But, now that I've reached this age I've got bunions,
it might be a real good time that we unionize.

    WE DON'T WANT MUCH.
    Just an eight percent raise in Social Security.
    WE DON'T WANT MUCH.
    And to hell with Medicare Part D.
    WE DON'T WANT MUCH.
    Tell the drug companies not to drive us to poverty.
    And maybe just a little more respect.

I never thought I would join the Gray Panthers.
I always would cringe at ads from AARP.
But, now picket lines and protest song anthems
are what we will use to strike to get what we need.

    CHORUS

        On strike! We won't go into how we brought you up.
        On strike! How we sacrificed to give you what you need.
        On strike! This'll happen to you just you wait and see.
        On strike! Just you wait and see.

What if we don't park in handicap spaces?
We'll boycott Ben Gay and Geritol and prune juice.
We'll crowd all your clubs and trendy-hip places.
Would that get our main concerns on the nightly news?

    CHORUS

        On strike!   On strike!   On strike!   On strike ...
