One Tall Order
Free for all, from the cradle, a garden of unearthly delightsSlaves of our own devices and these inalienable rightsEvery single secret now is everybody's business ‘cause we're living in an ad man's dreamWhat's a right to privacy? We couldn't wait to throw it awayIt's one tall orderOne small price to have to pay Say hello, satisfaction; we finally found a way to keep upSay goodbye, satisfaction, ‘cause faster won't be faster enoughAnother new development that's going to revolutionize us if we didn’t know by nowWhat a stupid life we were living only yesterdayIt's one tall orderOne small price to have to pay
Loaded down with all that you can carry; more than you can takeFurniture to rearrange; how many lightbulbs does it take to change?
Always seem to find myself hungry all the timeWe get a lot more of everything, but everything is fake todayIt's one tall orderOne small price to have to pay © 2023 Bruce M. Gordon
