Lyric Sandy (Fourth of July


Paper, iron, won t buy Eden
working for paper and for iron
work for the right to keep my tie on
working for paper and for iron
work for the unicorn and lion
I pray the kids aren t starving
no chicken for the Sunday carving
I ll stay for one more farthing
I take home my notes and coins every week
I m told I m worth much more
but the Church says turn the other cheek
the other cheek
paper, iron, won t buy Eden.
I know the family needs me
can t moan, the factory feeds me
won t bite the hand that bleeds me
I take home my notes and coins every week
I ll inherit the earth I m told
but the Church says to remain this meek
remain this meek
I m still a proud man.
Won t show anybody else my wage
a blend in the crowd man
is this anybody s golden age
is this anybody s golden age
is this anybody s golden age
or am I dreaming of a golden cage
La la lo it s paper
la la lo it s iron
la la lo just paper
la la lo just iron
