a political song by David Rovics

Before the Oil Wells Ran Dry

Were you drinking wine from Argentina or Indonesian coffee
Did you take some in a plane, and go fly across the country
Did you go to work the next week, drive your daily 20 miles
Stop at Sears to see the latest Chinese styles
When you did these things, did you wonder how or why
In the years before the oil wells ran dry

Were you watching the news, did you wonder when
They'd bomb another country or start up the draft again
As you tried to stop the war ??? might decide the plan is fate
Did you ever stop to question how that food got on your plate
As you stuck your fork into that slice of pie
In the years before the oil wells ran dry

When you went back to college to get another PhD
Or you went into the studio to record one more CD
Did it occur to you that your time might be spent better
Digging in the earth or learning to knit a sweater
Did you prepare for all the changes or at least pretend to dry
In the years before the oil wells ran dry

Re: hypocrite
Oh - and I meant to change the word "hate" to "dislike". I know you're not a hateful person.
