Album: "Pass The Hat"
There was a big snafu on the edge of town
It seems a man had shot his woman down
He stood over her body with his smoking gun
He didn't try to hide he didn't try to run
The police sirens screamed their lights broke the night
They found him just staring at the gruesome sight
There was nothing new about what they found
The big snafu on the edge of town

There was a big snafu at the factory gate
The bosses clenched their teeth in hate
The workmen smashed up against the door
They screamed "fair wages" they wanted more
It was then that blood began to spill
Sculls were cracked with a violent will
There was no chance to negotiate
The big snafu at the factory gate

Someday it won't be this way
Someday things are gonna change
They can't destroy all hope and faith
The prevailing human spirit remains


There was a big snafu on the city streets
There were people in rags with no food to eat
The privileged only looked down in scorn
Government turned its back once more
Then the riots began to rage
Across the land like a locust plague
Destruction as far as the eye could see
The big snafu on the city streets

Someday it won't be this way
Someday things are gonna change
They can't destroy all hope and faith
The prevailing human spirit remains
