The big one


by Nellie Mckay. Buy album CD: Pretty Little Head


Hey!
As you're walkin' down the street
Might wanna skip a beat
Think it over
Hey!
Walkin' to the corner store
But it ain't there no more
If you want a loaf of bread
You try a pharmacy instead
Another chain will set you free

Oh, oh, oh, hey!
When you go to pay the rent
You see it's all been spent
The purse is empty
Hey!
Money, money make a buck
But you're all outta luck
This town ain't friendly now
A thousand faces stare you down
Each one's afraid of what you seek

Oh, oh, oh
Slither in your sea
Can't deny it
Hide behind the view
Gentrify it
Take a life or two
The revolution's comin' round
Clingin' to the door
Quiver, cower
Profit off the poor
Fight the power
Hurt them even more
That's why they took Bruce Bailey down
Took Bruce Bailey down

Hey!
Looking like the jack is back
But he ain't gonna attack
His hands are flippin'
Hey!
Druggies dying in the halls
They're banging on the walls
Your Ma ain't trippin' now
It ain't a home if you ain't allowed
What time's the cease fire
Where's the heat

Spitting on the old
Sister, brother
Shittin' on your soul
Welfare mother
Profit is the goal
The revolution's coming round
Paying off a loan
Mass eviction
Elevate the zone
Ain't no fiction
Breakin' up a home
That's why they took Bruce Bailey down)
Took Bruce Bailey down

No more tokens, take a train
You swipe a piece of plastic paper
No more smoking on the plane
You gripe they'll take you to the jailer
Bide your time, it's all in vain
They tell you as you meet your maker
Grief's the mother of invention
Pain's the midwife to your labor
Turn it, burn it, cure it, endure it
If you are able, sucker

Hey!
People standing in the park
It's getting mighty dark
The kids are scowlin'
Hey!
Shutter up the windows tight
This is an evil night
The wind is howling fast
Another tragedy has passed
Another stain on you and me

Oh, oh, oh
Slither in your sea
Can't deny it
Hide behind the view
Gentrify it
Take a life or two
The revolution's comin' round
Clinging to the door
Quiver, cower
Profit off the poor
Fight the power
Hurt them even more
That's why they took Bruce Bailey down
Took Bruce Bailey down

Spittin' on the old
Sister, brother
Shitting on your soul
Welfare mother
Profit is the goal
The revolution's coming round
Payin' off a loan
Mass eviction
Elevate the zone
Ain't no fiction
Breakin' up a home
That's why they took Bruce Bailey down
Took Bruce Bailey down
