lyrics

$.99

My mother was a world-class working-class hero
Day after day she put food on the table
$.99 meant the world
$.99 meant the world

I remember when soda went from a nickel to a dime
“Work twice as hard for half as much” became the line I’d say when
$.99 meant the world
$.99 meant the world

Day in and day out behind the machine
of the man who owns the business that relies on me
But he can’t seem to pay me a wage so I can live
No, he can’t seem to pay me a wage so I can live

This “trickle down” isn’t working for me
A rain or a flood might help make ends meet
But I came from an honest man who came from an honest man who preached the Word
And, mostly, honest men who come from honest men are poor
