Lyrics

corner bar - Uncle Kracker

 

Once upon a time in the land of plenty

The land of lawyers, guns and money

A funny little thing we all call greed

Brought my hometown down to its knees

A little bit worried 'bout the shape I'm in

Baby needs shoes and the wallet's thin

 

Got no gas or electricity

But everybody's singin' in harmony

 

Sell me up, sell me down

I be sold out sittin' here hangin' around

Take my house, take my car

But you can't take my seat at the corner bar

Take my crib, take my car

But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar

 

No block party, everybody's evicted

No street lights, no runnin' liquids

I got no room on my credit card

And I'm three court dates

from the prison yard

My credit score's fallen

like the New York Mets

There ain't a debt collector that

ain't called yet

They say, "Money don't talk, it only swears"

 

And got me cussing in my underwear

Sell me up, sell me down

I be sold out sittin' here hangin' around

 

Take my house, take my car

But you can't take my seat at the corner bar

Take my crib, take my car

But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar

 

Once upon a time in America, America

 

The politicians went and fell outta love

There was a raping of the common man

 

And left us sittin' here without no plan

 

Swimmin' through bills like Michael Phelps

Down and out and can't get no help

The kids are hungry, peepin' French Poodles

Pickin' through dumpsters for Ramen noodles

Standin' in line with a family to feed

Tradin' Manhattan for Indian beads

It's been a long time since we felt good

Got everybody waitin' on Robin Hood

 

Sell me up, sell me down

I be sold out sittin' here hangin' around

Take my house, take my car

But you can't take my seat at the corner bar

Take my crib, take my car

But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar

 

Once upon a time in America, America

 

The politicians went and fell outta love

 

There was a raping of the common man

 

And left us sittin' here without no plan

 

Sell me up, sell me down

I be sold out sittin' here hangin' around

 

Take my house, take my car

But you can't take my seat at the corner bar

Take my crib, take my car

But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar

at the corner bar
