 Snake Oil

Ladies and gentlemen, attention please
Come in close so everyone can see
I got a tale to tell A listen don't cost a dime
and if you believe that we're gonna get along just fine

Now I've been travelin' all around
I heard trouble's come to your town
Well I've got a little somethin'
Guaranteed to ease your mind It's call Snake Oil y'all
It's been around for a long, long time

Say, your crops'll burn if it don't rain soon
Ain't seen a drop since the tenth of June
Well I can open up the sky, people never fear
If you ain't impressed yet, just tell me what you wanna hear

Well you lost your farm so you moved to town
You get a job, they shut the factory down
Now you sit around all day long feelin' sad and blue
You need Snake Oil y'all, tell you what I'm gonna do

I can heal the sick, I can mend the lame
and the blind shall see again, it's all the same
Well ain't your President good to you
Knocked 'em dead in Libya, Grenada too

Now he's taking his show a little further down the line
Well, 'tween me and him people, you're gonna get along just fine.
