This Is My Life Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Fat cats just getting fatter
Linin' their pockets, what does is matter?
All I want is an honest wage
A piece of ground where my kids are safe

Eighty bucks to fill my truck
Old man telling me times are tough
Stickin' it to the middle class
Well, they can kiss my price of gas
It's time to speak my mind

Hey yea, this is my life
Whoa whoa, this is my life
Hey yea, this is my life
Whoa whoa, yea, and I want it back
Republican or Democrat

Well, I don't give a damn about that
I want a chance to do my job
Pledge allegiance to my God
Talking heads tryin' to buy my vote
I'm just tryin to pay my note

I'm a husband tryin' to be a father
Raise my son, and raise my daughter
Can you hear me?

Hey yea, this is my life
Whoa whoa, this is my life
Hey yea, this is my life
Whoa whoa, yea, and I want it back

Well I'm just standin' on the edge of the brink
I will not go quietly
I'll tell you want I think, yea

It's time to speak my peace
The squeaky wheel always gets the grease
One single voice don't matter
But everybody screaming up the ladder

Gonna get the attention of the man on top
Make it light or shake and rock
And it might just come a tumblin' down
Spread all that wealth around
That's what I'm talking about

Hey yea, this is my life
Whoa whoa, this is my life
Hey yea, this is my life
Whoa whoa, yea, this is my life
This is my life
