Progress Is The Root Of All Evil lyrics


Progress is the root of all evil.
Progress is the cause of it all.
Our living standard’s now so good, I had to change my neighborhood.
Say, where is Levittown?
Billionaires are getting old fashioned; labor is the new fangled craze.
These crummyy basic minimums are getting so high,
The workers at the plant are living better than I.
My lawyers all advise me that it’s cheaper to die!
Bring back the good old days!

Progress is the root of all evil.
Wall Street is the worst of the lot.
How can you break the market? How?
The SEC will not allow one little panic.
Money nowadays is no problem, not with all these new giveaways.
I went to see a television quiz show today,
I thought at least I’d wind up with a Caddy Coupe’
But dammit if they didn’t try to give me away!
Bring back the good old days!

Progress is the root of all evil.
Politics is breaking my heart.
Why, ever since the first New Deal,
A man who has no mass appeal is out of business.
If you don't believe me, ask Dewey.
Go and see what Harriman says.
My friends say I could run for any office I seek.
But first I have to brush up on my TV technique.
I plan to get in touch with Bob Montgomery next week.
Bring back the good old days!

Progress is the root of all evil.
How's a busy man to relax?
I'd like to join a golf club where they built a supermarket there,
And for the public!
Being wealthy seems to mean nothing.
Let me show you how the land lays.
I went to see the President; they asked me to wait.
And though I knew that he was swamped with matters of state,
A fellow named Ben Hogan walked right through the front gate!
