Styx - Street Collage lyrics

"Well, you see now I'm a depression baby.
And I remember the WPA.
If we could just start the same thing again,
and get people working out there, why not?
Is it too menial for somebody to sweep the street?"

"And if you've got enough money - where you don't have to work -
let's face it, who wants to work?
There's no reason why anybody - that five generations of people -
got to be on welfare."

"I had one gentlemen get in - no offense to you gentlemen,
he had long hair and a beard -
and I told him he had better go home and take a bath.
He had B.O. so bad, it was terrible.
I said 'You might be educated,
but did your parents tell you to go dirty?'"

"See the latest issue
Hard up, see
Chicago scene."

"Kids nowadays, that's the whole thing - too much money.
They've got too much money.
They don't have to struggle and work for things
like when I was growing up had to do.
And, I was lucky if I got that job delivering hats
in a hat store for twenty-five cents per hat.
Too much money today is with the young kids
everything was handed to 'em,
And, that's why they are the way they are."
