Lyrics

Please Mr. Nixon, don't cut off your welfare line
Please Mr. Nixon, I say don't cut off your welfare line
I hope you give just a little more
money, so we can live good all the time

You sent Mr. Agnew all over the country, just to do your thing
You sent Mr. Agnew all over the country, just to do your thing
He didn't do too much to help you,
and now you're in trouble just the same

Everybody's driving Cadillacs, some livin' in rundown shacks
Everybody's driving Cadillacs, and livin' in rundown shacks
I'm a hard working man, I don't think I wanna be like that

Walls breaking out all over the
country, you sent word that you will help
Walls breaking out all over the
country, you sent word that you will help
People so doggone hungry in this
country, lot of them still cannot sleep

The farmers can't farm their farms, some people can't drive their cars
You sittin' there in the White House, as happy as you are
Please Mr. Nixon, won't you please raise your welfare lines

I want you to give up a little more money,
so we can live good in this country all the time
