Common People

.
Her name was Rothschild
She was a PUMA
She was a member
Of McCain’s Duma

That’s where I
Caught her lie

She said I want to the vote of common people
She said I’ll pretend to like what common people do
She said I want to use common people
She said I want to use common people - people like you

I took her to a CVS
I thought it best
I said now pretend that you have to choose
Between medicine and food
She said she had never laughed so hard
And she just used her credit card

I took her the airport
She was being a good sport
I said what if you didn’t have a private plane
And she said ‘would you please explain’
I said pretend you flight had lost a door
And you had to sleep here on the floor
She said that idea was a riot
And she just would fire the pilot

I took her to a public school
She said where is the swimming pool
I said these books are ineffectual
She called me an intellectual
I said there’s no money for art
She said ‘you think you’re so smart’
I showed her the broken bleachers
And she just blamed the teachers

I took to an emergency room
She knew what one of those was, I assume
I said these people can’t afford health care
She just gave me a blank stare
I said what if you had no insurance for that rash
She said well then I would just pay in cash
I said for once pretend you’re not rich
She ‘but dammit I am, bitch’

I said you don’t know any common people
I said you’ll never see what common people see
I said you’ll never earn the vote of common people
You’ll never earn the vote of common people - people like me
