Better Living Through Government Blues

~harmonica riff~

We-e-ll, I went down to the Home Depot
But no good floodlights could I find.
You know I went down to the Home Depot
And no good floodlights could I find.
The fluorescent ones I bought are way too dim
And El Jefe thinks he's loosing his mind.

I've got to tell you all, I've got to spread the news!
We're stuck with the bad ones and are singing
the Better Living Through Government Blues.
Oh, yes we are.

The good old floodlights worked just great,
The new ones not at all.
The den is dimly lit
You know we can't see in the hall.
The clerk said the g'vment makes them sell the worthless ones to us
So don't bother Home Depot by tryin' to make a fuss.

I've got to tell you all, I've got to spread the news!
We're stuck with the bad ones and are singing
the Better Living Through Government Blues.
Oh, yes we are.

So ... has he looked at some halogen bulbs ??

It never amazes me that the people want those folks who brought us the postal service to provide our healthcare and, now, decide what light bulbs we can use in our homes. Somebody has way too much time on their hands.

Somebody ought to run for Mom of Congress!
