mischief brew – jobs in steeltown lyrics

well once upon a time this town had a name
built the girders for the buildings that you climb everyday
but the well went dry and the crops all died
now there ain’t much to show you but a highway sign

but i swear to that statue in the square
that there used to be something there
but now there ain’t no jobs in steel town
not anymore
no jobs in steel town
no not anymore

well business man in business suit
he used lots of big words like economic and boom
theres tons of waste that needs a place
well we’ve got the money if you’ve got the sp-ce
and besides you need to be revitalized
and your workers need 9 to 5’s
and hey its good for jobs in steel town
not like before
more jobs in steel town
no not like before

well it once was steel now its iron bars
they need food spooners janitors and prison guards
and they look out
and i look in
sometimes i forget who the prisoner is
but its fine
’cause their numbers are on the rise
bad bad guys got another side
and hey its good for jobs in steeltown
for the working and poor
more in jobs in steeltown
for the working and poor

from wall street to main street
to the edge of your name street
try and connect the dots and see
we all live on the same street

well the days gonna come when the well goes dry
the executives’ll pack up and say good bye
and they’ll smile and wave
and we’ll say wait
you forgot your pile of toxic waste

hey we got families to raise
this is where i’ve got to plant my grave
but no there ain’t no jobs no there ain’t no jobs in steeltown
no not anymore
no jobs in steel town
just like before

no jobs in steel town
for the working and poor
no jobs in steel town
no not anymore

no jobs in steel town
