Lyrics

Boston Tea Party
(Purdum-Braly-Mishler)

Boston patriots went on a spree
Dressin' up like Injuns and then dumpin' some tea
Looking for self-government for you and for me
A first step in making us free
To live the American dream

Now big corporations roll into town
Buying up small businesses or shutting them down
Funding politicians so they don't make a sound
Take a good look around
American dream can't be found

Listen people, I'll tell you the score
The rich get more and the rest get poor
When folks start wondering “What about me?”
It's time to dump some tea!
It's time to dump some tea!

The Tea Party movement isn't the same
Stooges there are angry they want someone to blame
The greedy co-opt them, it's a part of their game
To see what they can control
They put us deep in the hole

Listen people, I'll tell you the score
The rich get more and the rest get poor
When folks start wondering “What about me?”
It's time to dump some tea!
It's time to dump some tea!
