    welch and basart got to see X 

    play a secret show

    at the tiny echo

    x

    “new world”

    more fun in the new world

    rhino records, 1983

    “honest to goodness

    the bars werent open this morning.

    They must have been voting for a new president of something.

    do you have a quarter?”

    i said yes because i did

    “Honest to goodness

    the tears have been falling

    all over this country’s face”

    It was better before, before they voted

    for whats-his-name

    This is suppose to be the new world.

    Flint, Ford, Auto, Mobile, Alabama,

    windshield wipers Buffalo New York, Gary, Indiana

    don’t forget the Motor City

    Baltimore and D.C. now all we need is

    don’t forget the Motor City

    This was supposed to be the new world.

    (repeat)

    All we need is money

    just give us what you can spare

    Twenty or thirty pounds of potatoes

    or twenty of thirty pears

    a turkey on thanksgiving

    like alms for the poor

    all we need are the necessities and more

    It was better before, before they voted

    for whats-his-name

    This is suppose to be the new world.

    Don’t forget the Motor City

    This was supposed to be the new world.
