The Promise of Paradise

We have the means
to provide every man (woman and child)
with those things
that make life fun

All we ask of you
All we want from you, sir
is eight hours a day
five days out of seven
surely a very small price
for all the things we offer

Rats!

Give us a year or two
to get things running smoothly
there's so much we can't explain to you
if we want to make things run smoothly

All we ask...

Cats!

And if you work hard enough
you might win the American Dream
not sticky and covered with fluff
but fresh eggs and cream of the cream!

All we ask...

Is it too much?
(I guess not...)
