[On Social Insecurity]

 Railroaded 

To "I've Been Working on the Railroad"

(Traditional)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

I'LL BE WORKING IN RETIREMENT.
MUCH TO MY DISMAY.
I'LL BE WORKING IN RETIREMENT.
‘TIL THE DAY I PASS AWAY. 
 
FICA'S BLED ME DRY FOR AGES.
MEDICARE IS EVEN WORSE.
WHEN MY PENSION STAGE ENGAGES:
THERE’LL BE NOTHING TO DISBURSE. 
 
NOTHING TO DISBURSE.
STAMPS. 
OR RAMPS. 
OR NURSE.
SO MUCH FOR THE GOLDEN YEARS. 
WHY ENTRUST YOUR PURSE?
IT IS JUST PERVERSE.
WHAT’S PAYROLLED-IN? 
DISAPPEARS! 
 
SOME NICHE GETTING RICH ON MY DRUG PLAN.
THAT’S A STITCH TO LEAVE A SCAR.
AND A MOST UPSETTINGLY SMUG PLAN.
CAN’T WE BRING BACK F.D.R.? 
 
HOPE RINGING … 
 
HE’D SCORN THIS AS BIZARRE. 
WE’D WARN: “FOR THE COURSE, IT'S NOW PAR.” 
HOW WE'D SPRING TO HIS STAR!
CAN’T WE BRING BACK F.D.R.?
CAN’T WE BRING BACK F.D.R.?
CAN’T WE BRING BACK F.D.R.?
