TOM PAXTON | I AM CHANGING MY NAME TO CHRYSLER SONG LYRICS

Oh The Price Of Gold Is Rising Out Of Sight
And The Dollar Is In Sorry Shape Tonight
What The Dollar Used To Get Us
Now Won’t Buy A Head Of Lettuce
No, The Economic Forecast Isn’t Bright

But Amid The Clouds I Spot A Shining Ray
I Can Even Glimpse A New And Better Way
I’ve Demised A Plan Of Action
Worked It Down To The Last Fraction
And I’m Going Into Action Here Today

Chorus:
I Am Changing My Name To Chrysler
I Am Going Down To Washington, D.C
I Will Tell Some Power Broker
What They Did For Iacocca
Will Be Perfectly Acceptable To Me
I Am Changing My Name To Chrysler
I Am Headed For That Great Receiving Line
And When They Hand A Million Grand Out
I’ll Be Standing With My Hand Out
Yes Sir, I’ll Get Mine

When My Creditors Are Screaming For Their Dough
I’ll Be Glad To Tell Them All Where They Can All Go
They Won’t Have To Scream And Holler
They’ll Be Paid To The Last Dollar
Where The Endless Streams Of Money Seem To Flow
I’ll Be Glad To Tell Them What They Can Do
It’s A Matter Of A Simple Form Or Two
It’s Not Just Remuneration, It’s A Liberal Education!
Ain’t You Kind Of Glad That I’m In Debt To You?

(Chorus)
Since The First Amphibian Crawled Out Of The Slime
We’ve Been Struggling In An Unrelenting Climb
We Were Hardly Up And Walking Before Money Started Talking
And It Said That Failure Is An Awful Crime
Well, It’s Been That Way A Millennium Or Two
But Now It Seems That There’s A Different Point Of View:
If You’re A Corporate Titanic And Your Failure Is Gigantic
Down In Congress There’s A Safety Net For You

(Chorus)
