Monopoly Lyrics (by Terri Hendrix)

Monopoly

Supersize my fries 

Bring back two apple pies

On your way out

Turn on the radio

Goodbye originality

Say hello to conformity

In the name of change 

We’re at an all time low

Watch what’s on the TV screen

Read the paper or a magazine

And you’ll see

That it’s all about control

I miss the spice

In the melting pot 

Of our lives

It all goes down easy
But it sure ain’t got no soul

Keep it down

Keep it down

I’m gonna keep it down

And turn it up
on another day
Keep it down

Keep it down

We’ve got to keep it down

And rise up

When you hear me say

There ain’t no clear channel

Clear channel its clear to see

One choice
Takes the voice

From individuality
There ain’t no clear channel 

Clear channel its clear to see

One choice
Takes the voice

Away from you
And away from me

At first it was the cafe

Then the mom and pops all moved away 

Now the billboards stand 

Where they could not survive

The local DJ lost his show

After 20 years on the radio

Now we’re stuck with what
the monopoly provides
I just want something new

To shake my soul and body to 

Set up the tent I need to be revived

Make the consultant history

Keep the playlist a mystery

And don’t make up my mind for me

’Cause I’m still alive

Keep it down

Keep it down

I’m gonna keep it down

And turn it up
on another day
Keep it down

Keep it down

We’ve got to keep it down

And rise up

When you hear me say

There ain’t no clear channel

Clear channel its clear to see

One choice
Takes the voice

From individuality
There ain’t no clear channel 

Clear channel its clear to see

One choice
Takes the voice

Away from you
And away from me

I say, “Hey, hey, FCC, don’t you turn your back on me!”
