Album
Name of Song: Did you forget you can do it too

Shops, stores,
Supermarkets galore,
Everything is provided,
Just go to work and pay us.

Restaurants, gourmet,
Groceries and delicacies,
Endless choices of everything,
It’s all done so nice for you.

Chorus
Did you forget you can do it too,
Have you decided just to work and pay,
What would happen if you lost your job,
Where would you go, would you lose your way.
______

Did you forget you can grow your food,
Did you forget it tastes so much better,
Did you forget how little space you need,
Someone else’s always tastes better.

Did you forget you can hunt for food,
It’s still legal in America,
Do you think you’re too busy now,
Cause you have to go to work.

What do you spend your money on,
Mostly food and some other treats,
Do you think it would take some 40 hrs,
To grow or hunt for your food.

Chorus
Did you forget you can do it too,
Have you decided just to work and pay,
What would happen if you lost your job,
Where would you go, would you lose your way.

We rely on everyone else to live,
It seems the way of the world,
What would happen if you lost your job,
What would you do if you don’t know how.

A rain barrel under the gutter spout,
Gives you water much purer than what you get,
Find a pond or lake for fishing in,
Set up an exchange with someone else.

It’s time to relearn some basic things,
Yes you did them not so long ago,
It’s not so hard to fend for yourself,
Soon you may have to anyhow.

Chorus
Did you forget you can do it too,
Have you decided just to work and pay,
What would happen if you lost your job,
Where would you go, would you lose your way.
