Establishment Blues

RodriguezBuy this song


Rodriguez was a San Luis Obispo based rock band active in the mid to late 1990s. more »

The mayor hides the crime rate
 Council woman hesitates  Public gets irate but forget the vote date
 Weatherman complaining, predicted sun, it's raining 
Everyone's protesting, boyfriend keeps suggesting 
You're not like all of the rest

 Garbage ain't collected, women ain't protected  Politicians using people, they've been abusing 
The mafia's getting bigger, like pollution in the river 
And you tell me that this is where it's at

Woke up this moming with an ache in my head
 Splashed on my clothes as I spilled out of bed
 Opened the window to listen to the news
But all I heard was the Establishment's Blues 

Gun sales are soaring, housewives find life boring  Divorce the only answer smoking causes cancer
This system's gonna fall soon, to an angry young tune
And that's a concrete cold fact

The pope digs population, freedom from taxation  Teeny Bops are up tight, drinking at a stoplight  Miniskirt is flirting I can't stop so I'm hurting  Spinster sells her hopeless chest

 Adultery plays the kitchen, bigot cops non-fiction
The little man gets shafted, sons and monies drafted
 Living by a time piece, new war in the far east
Can you pass the Rorschach test?

It's a hassle is an educated guess
Well, frankly I couldn't care less
