All Along The Watchtower

Fallen On Hard Times?

“Fallen On Hard Times

Fallen on hard times — but it feels good to know
that milk and honey’s just around the bend.
Running on bad lines — we’d better run as we go,
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again.

Oh, dear Prime Minister — it’s all such a mess.
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth.
Oh, Mr. President — you’ve been put to the test.
Come clean, for once, and hit us with the truth.

Looking for sunshine — oh but it’s black and it’s cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey’s just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
handing us the same line again.

Fallen on hard times — and there’s nowhere to hide
Now they’ve re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the mink.

Turning on the peace sign — and it’s back to the wood.
Soon there will be raised a holy stink.

Somebody wake me. I’ve been sleeping too long.
Oh, I don’t have to take this lying down.
You can keep your promises. Shove `em where they belong.
Don’t ask me to the party — won’t be around.
