My Occupy Wall Street song "No It's Not OK" - now with new & improved lyrics for 2012! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Spectacular-Fool/310084569031159?sk=app_2405167945

No, It's Not OK 
You work all your life just to make ends meet 
Forget about a pension and Social Security 
You’ll be working until you’re eighty - that’s downward mobility No, it’s not OK 
There’s a better way 
People - lead the way
And we won't stop at Wall Street

The game is stacked in the 1%’s favor 
And we the 99 are not allowed at the table 
Well the GDP says that there is wealth being created 
But it floats to the top away from those who generate it

No, it’s not OK 
There’s a better way 
People - lead the way
And we won't stop at Wall Street 
They know that to conquer they must first divide So they stoke up discontentment with those who are unionized 
Who've got nice pensions and sane working hours too 
But instead of tearing them down why not build up me and you? 
Because you deserve the same things for your labor 
And the 99% are your friends and neighbors

No, it’s not OK 
There’s a better way 
People - lead the way
And we won't stop at Wall Street

We don’t want a handout we just want what we’ve earned 
And a fair shake for those who have been so badly burned 
Holding criminals responsible: what could be more mainstream? 
It’s time to stop the theft of the American Dream
