Lyrics

The people who teach our children
Young librarians and firefighters
Can’t afford to live in houses like ours
But let’s try to contain our ire
Affordable housing gives folks like these
A chance for a better life
And you can survive them moving in near us
If you keep the following in mind:

Working class people are not crack whores.
Working class people are not crack whores.
Let’s stop screaming and slamming doors.
Working class people are not crack whores.

Not to be mean to the crack whores
I’m sure some of them are swell
And they could use some rehab
And compassionate treatment
To help them out of their personal hell.

Working class people are not crack whores.
Working class people are not crack whores.
Let’s stop screaming and slamming doors.
Working class people are not crack whores.

But people in affordable housing
Are not criminals
Or even dumb clucks
And building their homes near us
Creates less traffic than the new Starbucks!


Working class people are not crack whores
Working class people are not crack whores
Let’s stop screaming and slamming doors.
Cause working class people
And middle class people
And dark-skinned people
And open-minded people are
Not crack whores.
