The wheelbarrow's fallen Look at my hands They've found some surplus cheaper hands Rubbing palms and pick and choose, who will they choose? Here is the news. Look at that building, look at this man Haloed and whitewashed Gone to find a cheaper hand he'll offer a pound, offer a pound. Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go The compass points the workers home Pay for your freedom, find another gate Guilt by associate, the rushes wilted a long time ago Guilty as you go Stay off that highway, word is it's not so safe The grasses that hide the greenback The amber waves of gain again The amber waves of gain Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go The compass points the workers home GREEN GROW THE RUSHES (Version 2) From: srussell@GAS.UUG.Arizona.EDU (Seth O Russell)
