We the People

Colombo sailed the ocean blue
not much of a sailor was he
But when he saw the Arawak well he knew
what wonderful slaves they'd be

What We the People wanted
We the People wanted
Was to believe it when you tell us that we're free
What We the People wanted
we the People wanted
was our tiny little portion of the dream

Rockefeller said to People's Oil
From now on it's Standard time
People said "But you'll prosper from our toil—"
Rocky said, "Your toil is mine."

What We the People wanted
We the People wanted
was to believe it when you tell us that we're free
It wasn't very much that
we the People wanted
We the People wanted
was our tiny little portion of the dream

The mill-boss said "You can be like me:
with work, and effort, and will."
The sawyer said "That'll never be
So long as your daddy owns the mill."

Colombus sailed the ocean blue
not much of a sailor was he
But when he saw America well he knew
what wonderful slaves we'd be

What We the People wanted
We the People wanted
was to believe it when you tell us that we're free
Did you ever ask what
We the People wanted?
We the People wanted
was our tiny little portion of the dream
