city council lyrics – casualties

city officials lie on and on again
down in my city, the rent has gone up again
hide behind false words no more
what the f*ck do you take us for

council – you b*st*rds control the waterfront
don’t let them tear you down

tried to protest, it seems all in vain
this rent increase i can’t afford to pay
the please i live is hip today
in comes the rich the poor has to go away

down at city hall i state my case
the city council has all been paid
they stand for the people, so they say
you filthy liars, i hope you rot in h*ll

council – you b*st*rds control the waterfront
don’t let them tear you down

rent control pet*tions and off to court we go
the judge takes our side, our voice has been heard
this city knows of the council’s illegal ways
this working man just won’t go away
