Are ya tired yet?

Ya wake up from the American dream
an' two blocks away they can hear you scream
the powers that be really don't care
that the sacred dream is jus' another nightmare

Are ya tired yet? Are ya tired yet?
This is as good as it's gonna get?
Are ya tired yet? Are ya tired yet?

The politicians are bought 'n sold
with lobbyists lining their pockets with gold
A workin' family's life is really a bitch
While TV news plays the old bait 'n switch

Chorus

Fat cats just keep gettin' fatter
but for you it just don't matter
Cos' until ya draw your dyin' breath
You'll be workin' yourself to death

Chorus

They just can't function without us
It's time to move up from the back o' the bus
It's time to make a change, yes it's time
So brother, can ya spare a dime

Chorus

then...
Are ya tire yet, are ya tired yet, are ya tired (to fade)

4/4 time 12 bar blues...

Re: Are ya tired yet?

Thanks for the feedback - jets - I do in B flat, but tried it in E, and, ya that  works too. Tempo should be rather slow with a 4 beat pause between the "are ya tired yet"s. I've only done it accoustically.
DC - my friend gave me the title and a bit of inspiration - we're going to give it a whirl at recording it at his son's studio.
dino - thanks, man -

The pun at the end (change - brother can ya spare a dime) was intentional - does it work, ya think?
