Looking for Randy Newman lyrics.

I was looking for the lyrics to a Randy Newman song about dropping the bomb on everyone (except Australia!) when I came across this one. This was written almost 30 years ago and could apply to any countries' elected ruler. Has anything changed since 1974?

Mr President

Randy Newman (1974)


We've taken all you've given
But it's gettin' hard to make a livin'
Mr. President have pity on the working man

We're not asking you to love us
You may place yourself high above us
Mr. President have pity on the working man

I know it may sound funny
But people ev'ry where are runnin' out of money
We just can't make it by ourself

It is cold and the wind is blowing
We need something to keep us gong
Mr. President have pity on the working man

Maybe you've cheated
Maybe you've lied
Maybe you have lost your mind
Maybe you're only thinking 'bout yourself

Too late to run. Too late to cry now
The time has come for us to say good-bye now
Mr. President have pity on the working man
Mr. President have pity on the working man
