Pink Houses – Lyrics

Posted by Janet | July 3, 2008

There’s a black man with a black cat
Living in a black neighborhood
He’s got an interstate runnin’ through his front yard
You know, he think, that he’s got it so good
And there’s a woman in the kitchen cleanin’ up the evening slop
And he looks at her and says: hey darling, I can remember when you could stop a clock

Chorus:
Oh but ain’t that America for you and me
Ain’t that America were something to see baby
Ain’t that America, home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me

Well there’s a young man in a T-shirt
Listening to a rockin’ rollin’ station
He’s got a greasy hair, greasy smile
He says: Lord, this must be my destination
cuz they told me, when I was younger
Boy, you’re gonna be president
But just like everyting else, those old crazy dreams
Just kinda came and went

Chorus:
Oh but ain’t that America for you and me
Ain’t that America were something to see baby
Ain’t that America, home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me

Well there’s people and more people
What do they know know know
Go to work in some high rise
And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico
Ohhh yeah
And there’s winners, and there’s losers
But they ain’t no big deal
cuz the simple man baby pays for the thrills,
The bills and the pills that kill

Chorus:
Oh but ain’t that America for you and me
Ain’t that America were something to see baby
Ain’t that America, home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me

Oh but ain’t that America for you and me
Ain’t that America were something to see baby
Ain’t that America, home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me
