They keep talking of the things they'd do if we'd only vote them in,
Send one more dollar and all the bickering and suffering would end;
If you'd sign your 'X' in favour, it's three jobs for every man;
You can burn your boats, that's what they said,
It seemed they had it planned;
And I hope they haven't forgotten the promises they made.

'Cause they said they'd stop the fighting,
And they said they would bring peace,
And they said they'd find a serum that can cure all our disease;
And they said they'd house the homeless,
And put black and white in tune,
And they said they'd feed a hungry child,
And I hope it's someday soon.

Saw a man sleep in an alley, laying with a paper for a bed,
And the headlines showed beneath the man and this is what they read:
"If elected there would be no persons living in the street,"
But the paper couldn't even provide shelter for his freezing feet;
And I hope they haven't forgotten the promises they made.

'Cause they said they'd stop the fighting,
And they said they would bring peace,
And they said they'd find a serum,
That can cure all our disease;
And they said they'd house the homeless,
And put black and white in tune,
And they said they'd feed a hungry child,
And I hope it's someday soon.

Well they said it would be so different,
If we'd would only play their game;
But I've been playing for so long,
And I swear its still the same.

'Cause they said they'd stop the fighting,
And they said they would bring peace,
And they said they'd find a serum,
That can cure all our disease;
And they said they'd house the homeless,
And put black and white in tune,
And they said they'd feed a hungry child,
And I hope it's someday soon.

'Cause they said they'd stop the fighting,
And they said they would bring peace,
And they said they'd find a serum,
That can cure all our disease;
And they said they'd house the homeless,
And put black and white in tune,
And they said they'd feed a hungry child,
And I hope it's someday soon.
