In waves and cycles the theory goes
if you tighten your belt you can see your toes;
they'll increase the taxes and it'll hurt for a while
but things will improve and you'll be living in style.
Dreams, like cold beer, disappear
in the heat of a working day.
Money comes to visit but never to stay
can't seem to save - it just fades away.
We're in debt to our ears with so few years
to add value to the family name.
Your spending power is what really counts,
where you fit in the feeding chain.

It's a constant battle
to keep the wolf from the door.
Keno and Lotto the new national sport
Everyone wants miracles
from those tickets they bought.>>
