1980 Blues

Iran got some white boys and won’t let them go
Russia in in Afghanistan asking for war

I don’t have a job
Greyhound lost my shoes

We are all in it together
singing the 1980 blues

Gas has gone sky high
Food has too
Money hardly has no value
gold is what’s new

I don’t have money to pay
the toll to commute to Frisco
to attend school

Can’t help but sing the 1980 blues

There is talk of war
Drafting women too
Year of the elections
Who will we chose

Olympics may be call off or
maybe just moved
I know there are a lot of us
singing the 1980 blues
