Song Meaning
Verse 1
Hey
Hey
Hey
Hey
Verse 2
Hey, there's no news
Poor man still got the blues
He's walking around in worn out shoes
With nothing to lose
Verse 3
Hey, he's on the road
Pushing along his heavy load
Heading for no fixed abode
Shuffling slow
Verse 4
Hey
Verse 5
Corporations get the breaks
Keeping almost everything they make
Tell us just how long it's going to take
For it to trickle down
When will it trickle down?
Verse 6
Hey, he's on the street
Laying in the snow and sleet
Begging for something to eat
And looking beat
Verse 7
Hey, passers-by
They don't dare to catch his eye
Couldn't even tell you why
Or what's happening inside
Verse 8
Corporations get the breaks
Keeping almost everything they make
Tell us just how long it's going to take
For it to trickle down
When will it trickle down?
