Music Monday: Occupy Wall Street

Via To Get Rich is Glorious, an appropriate anthem for the Occupy Wall Street folks:

The best lines (despite rhyming "age" with "age") are reminiscent of my previous entry:
...At what point in history could a kid and a king 
both have clean water to drink?
George Washington was the richest man of his age 
But he lost all his teeth at a very young age 
Because they didn't have Scope and they all crapped in trays. 
We're not wealthy?

Now there's fountains on streets
from which clean water pours.
Four dollar generics
at all big box stores.
A sultan and student
both have iPhone 4s.
It's not fair

(The full lyrics are available on YouTube.)
