lyrics

city shut down the B84
was our only good ride to the grocery store
paycheck goes to the glucose strip
patience goes to the 95 minute bus trip
30 hour week -- I wish they'd give me more
and I wonder what it's all for
when I can't feed my baby no more

worry worry work and cry
full warm breast goes limp and dry
wilted leaves still priced too high
too hard feed my baby

Granma grew her yams in the yard
in the Carib sun chile it's not so hard
but she traded that sun for the cold and the cash
strong hands picking up office trash
you never dig dirt with a new green card
but her fingers still ache for the yard
now that feeding her baby's so hard

worry worry work and cry
full warm breast goes limp and dry
wilted leaves still priced too high
too hard feed my baby

junk food minefield on the tv
dinnertime battle him against me
change the channel try not to see
starvation
still starvation
in the 21st century

worry worry work and cry
full warm breast goes limp and dry
wilted leaves still priced too high
red raw fingers fill the sack
raid the trailers send them back
silos rotting still I lack
enough to feed my baby
its tough to feed my baby
