THE SHEARING

See the wheels start coming off
See the train wreck start
Watch them run for cover
After all they’ve torn apart

I never was too good at math
But don’t numbers say it plain
These people take a minus
And transform it into gain

Well the track is nice and greasy
And the slope is far too steep
Hang on folks it’s time again
They’re shearing all the sheep
