Written by Bill Mishler and Chris Purdum

lyrics

A dysfunctional White House for the next four years
We cannot wait to right that wrong
90 percent of us have healthcare after year of tears
Now we'd be sold out for a song

Gonna try to fight what's wrong
Even if it takes too long
We'll flag the exploitation of hate and fear
We need to try to right what's wrong

Give up the good fight
And everybody loses
There's a chance you can take
You've got a choice; you better choose it
Blame the poor for their plight
And you know you just abuse them
Give up the good fight
And everybody loses

We got 16 million jobs back, but it's called disaster
You wonder what planet they're on
They say they'll replace healthcare, but don't say what comes after
They're trying to sell us one big con

Gonna try to fight what's wrong
Even if it takes too long
We'll flag the exploitation of hate and fear
We need to try to right what's wrong

Give up the good fight
And everybody loses
There's a chance you can take
You've got a choice; you better choose it
They say they’ll bring back our jobs
But they'd run out all the unions
Give up the good fight
And everybody loses

A dysfunctional White House for the next four years
We cannot wait to right that wrong
90 percent of us have healthcare after year of tears
Now we'd be sold out for a song
We got 16 million jobs back, but it's called disaster
You wonder what planet they're on
They say they'll replace healthcare, but don't say what comes after
They're trying to sell us one big con

Gonna try to fight what's wrong
Even if it takes too long
We'll flag the exploitation of hate and fear
We need to try to right what's wrong

Give up the good fight
And everybody loses
There's a chance you can take
You've got a choice; you better choose it
They tear down our schools
Pandering tax cuts that are useless
Give up the good fight
And everybody loses

Keep up the good fight!
