So-So Security

SO-SO SECURITY                             

                                                   

I put a little bit in                            

They take a little bit out                   

I put a little more in                         

They say “There’s never any doubt!    

You’ll get yours when you retire!”       

But there’s nothin’ left for me,           

That’s So-So Security!

 

Instrumental

 

The cost of food goes up

And then my car breaks down

Then my rent goes up

And my bills have got me down, (cough)

I’d go to see the doctor

But I can’t afford the fee

That’s So-So Security!

 

Instrumental

 

Then when it finally comes                    

And I need new clothes                         

There’s nothin’ there but crumbs           

Well, that’s the way it goes                     

In Salvation Army style                           

I’m as sharp as I can be!                        

That’s So-So Security!                            

 

I put a little bit in                                  

They take a little bit out                         

I put a little more in                               

They say “There’s never any doubt!          

You’ll get yours when you retire!”             

But there’s nothin’ left for me,                 

That’s So-So Security!  Oh yeah!               

 

So-So Security!
