The Song of the Huckster (People Are Sheep)

Lyrics

If you’re clever here’s the thing
You can sell anyone on anything

Pull their strings and they’ll cheer or they’ll weep
Cause at a very basic level
People are sheep

See that crowd with their innocent grins
They’ll pay a dollar just to be taken in

There is no price that they’d consider too steep
Of this I’m very certain
People are sheep

Cheers… will rain upon you
Followed in a flash
By plenty of cash

My herbal remedy will fix all their ills
I have a pill to give them sexual thrills

At what I’m charging they’ll admit it’s dirt cheap
So open up your checkbooks
You marvelous sheep

I thrive, because I fill a need
People like to believe
And I provide them the things to believe in
They get the stuff that dreams are made of
And what do I get out of this clever arrangement?

Cheers… They rain upon me
Followed in a flash
By plenty of cold hard cash

I make a fortune off of fleecing the meek
I simply satisfy the answers they seek

It doesn’t interrupt my childlike sleep
And let me just remind you
People are sheep

Cheers… will rain upon you
Followed in a flash
By plenty of…
Cold, Hard
Wonderful, Magical
Fabulous, Glorious
Cash!!

And when those cheers
Ring in your ears
Remember a wise man once said
I know that it’s true
A sucker is born every minute or two
Let them dig deep while we raise a glass
To the SHEEP!
