That’s Just the Way I Used to Vote Lyrics

Verse 1

Now and then I look way back when we were younger.
Together we could change the world if we just tried.
Naiveté and myopia,
Oh we could build ourselves utopia.
And there was nothing that could satiate our hunger.

Verse 2

It’s not right that all the rich are getting richer.
All of you should get an equal piece of pie.
Oh yea you could stick it to the man
If you’d just implement our fair share plan.
But in the end we found you were a bait and switcher.

Chorus

So much rhetoric to misinform,
You said everything we wanted just to get elected.
The hope and change was to transform,
But you’re just a politician, not a real life form.
Oh what happened to my treasury note?
Took your family to Hawaii and ignored expenses.
You can keep your cashmere coat.
Now you see that’s just the way I used to vote.

Now you see that’s just the way I used to vote.

Now you see that’s just the way I used to vote.

Verse 3

Now and then I ponder now that we are older.
Oh, we were hoping that the rich would pay our bills
But now that all the money’s gone
Our bank accounts have been withdrawn.
Our country looks like Kasakhstan
I’ve matured and so I see how wrong — that’s just the way I used to vote.

Chorus

So much rhetoric to misinform,
You said everything we wanted just to get elected.
The hope and change was to transform,
But you’re just a politician, not a real life form.
Oh what happened to my treasury note?
Took your family to Hawaii and ignored expenses.
You can keep your cashmere coat.
Now you see that’s just the way I used to vote.

My money…I used to vote…for money.
Now you see that’s just the way I used to vote.

My money…I used to vote…for money.
Now you see that’s just the way I used to vote.

I used to vote…that I used to vote…I used to vote…for money.
