I'm forced to find a new beginning to my life
I'm over fifty, it could be too late
Maybe as a WalMart greeter with my wife
Relocating to a brand new state
Brand new state - isn't this just great

Used to be a second pilot on a freighter
Now I get to choose between cashier and waiter
Markets started crashing with a sonic boom
Companies started using the broom
Looking for work and hearing "nope"
All out of cash and all out of hope

UUUUUNNNNNNN-employment, where your savings vanish like the rain
And a special treat is pigeon meat
While your future's going down the drain
UUUUUNNNNNNN-employment, ev'ry day my honey lamb and I
Have a big yard sale that always fails
Because everyone's too broke to buy

We know when the workers get tossed (goodbye!)
There are huge bonuses for the boss
And so they say, hey!
Let's cut the staff today!
And so they're laying off lots and lots of employees
Unemployment, oy vey!


We know that we're getting the heave
So our jobs can be shipped overseas
And when they say, hey!
Free enterprise, ok?
We start to sayin'
Wait 'til YOU face unemployment!
Unemployment, oy vey! T-R-A-U-M-A
Oy Vey!
