Worth the Weight

Hand me down my old ball and chain
It’s worth the weight if I never have to see you again
I’m running late but at least I’m running

I’ve been down this road a time or two
Nothing has changed but that’s nothing new
I’m wearing holes in the soles of my brand new walking shoes
Watch me while I make my getaway

If you see me by the side of the road
No time to talk no time to take
Just give me a wave or a nod
I ain’t hitching ride I am waving you on
Go on now, make your getaway

We’re really the first American generation that won’t have the resources to live better than the generation that came before us. The boomers have not only skimmed the cream off the top of the milk, they’ve drunk up all the milk too.
