lyrics

My baby didn’t get her paycheck
when it was due last week
My baby didn’t get her last paycheck,
& neither did the other teachers
The superintendent said ‘I’m under stress,
please have some empathy!’

To keep your public school,
it only takes a hunger strike
To keep our neighborhood schools open,
it only takes a hunger strike
You might even get the city to remove some lead from your building,
if you ask polite

There’s homeless folks on every corner –
some are old, some are in their teens
There’s homeless folks on every damn corner –
some are old, some are in their teens
& my people ain’t ready for revolution, naw,
they don’t even know what it means

Well, Nelson died & I miss him,
& I’m scared for the times ahead,
& my friend Nico died way too early
in his cold hospital bed,
& Donald Trump fucking won that election,
& it could be the last one that we get

They killed Sandra Bland & then framed her,
& they say the answer is more cops
& they killed those 43 students
down in Ayotzinapa
& it looks like another world war’s comin,
& artists just care about when their
project drops

Oh, I got the blues, I got Chicago blues,
yea I got the blues, I got the U.S. blues,
yea I got the blues, globalization blues,
yea I got the blues, civilization blues,
I got the red solution
revolution blues!
