The Downsizing Blues
verse
Well-l-l-l-l-l-l, I got to work this morning - something seemed kinda strange
My buddy Joe was missin - there's a machine in his place
I turned around an asked my boss - can you tell me whats this all about
He said - Joe got the ax this morning - he's been down-sized out
verse
I got ten years on my mortgage - I got two kids still in school
I live out in the country - tryin to live by the golden rule
chrous
I got the - down - sizein blues - got a feelin like I'm gonna loose it all
They're pickin anyone they choose - for the down sizein blues

All our stuff is made in China - they make it for one tenth the price
Them people live on nothing - they're eatin nothing but rice

Thay're pickin anyone they choose - for the down sizein blues
Lead

If I live to be one hundred - guess I'll never understand
I worked my fingers to the the bone - now I'm a downsized man

I got the - down - sizein blues - got a feelin like I'm gonna loose it all
They're pickin anyone they choose - for the down - sizein - blues
