Bubble Gum

The Grapes of Wrath read by high school students
The all-American tragedy
I forced myself to read it darlin'
Returned it to the library

You pay 10 bucks 
For melodrama
Guaranteed with a weak plot
The handle fell off
The evergreen suitcase
That I just bought
I'm a girl
I'm cynical
I have 1 quarter, 3 pennies
One dime
All i can buy is bubble gum
To pass away the time

Gas prices are going up
As well as CDs, movies and popcorn
What happened to the free things in life
That we used to adore

I know everyone is stupid
Sometimes I'm stupid too
I've never been here before
I have a couple of questions for you
