Listen to Peter sing this song on the Mash-Up with Marc KMUZ Radio program

E
Now we’re in the red we used to be in the black

They bailed out the bankers, the rest fell through the cracks

They ate up my retirement, said, “Thanks for the snack,
E7
We made off with your money, we ain’t bringing it back.”

Chorus
A                                  A7
And I’m mad as hell, ain’t gonna take it no more
B7                                A                                   E
Yes, I’m mad as hell, ain’t gonna take it no more.

Corporate greed for oil sent poor folks to Iraq
They did a tour of duty then stop loss sent them back
They are getting paid peanuts while Blackwater gets the jack
We’re wasting lives and money while our country goes off track
And I’m mad as hell, ain’t gonna take it no more (2x).

Well our healthcare system is another thing that’s broke
Don’t need to be sick for it to make you choke
If something should happen you’d be poor in just one stroke
The word that comes to mind to describe it is baroque.
And I’m mad as hell, ain’t gonna take it no more (2x).

Just a few corporations want to own our food supply
You can vote with your dollars read the label ‘fore you buy
If it says Monsanto better make another try
Cause if they get their way you can kiss your ass goodbye
And I’m mad as hell, ain’t gonna take it no more (2x).

They say before you run that first you’ve got to walk
So we better start a-walkin’, better not stop with talk
So stand up on your hind legs and say it before you balk
It’s time to realize we’re ‘tween a hard place and a rock
Say: I’m mad as hell, ain’t gonna take it no more (2x).
