Artist's Notes

This is a song I wrote way back in 2010 not long after the big economic crash that left much of the world in financial turmoil.

Lyrics

Men With Ties. James Fraser 2010

The lawyer, the banker

The politician, the judge,

What they got against us?

Do they carry a grudge?

They don't care about our strife

They just wanna live the high life

Drive around in a company car

Making sure that We don't get far.

Do you know them? Have you seen them?

Those men that are everywhere.

Yes, you know them, those men in black

They say that there are even women like that!

They don't wear shorts or denim blues

They wear their suits and shiny shoes

They stare at us with steely eyes.

It's no surprise ? from Men With Ties.

Men with ties, and all that implies,

Tell us lies, think we're unwise,

Like to chastise, even despise.

Those who they think can't win a prize.

The lawyer, the banker

The politician, the judge,

What they got against us?

Do they carry a grudge?

Do you know them? Have you seen them?

Those men that are everywhere.

Yes, you know them, those men in black

They say that there are even women like that!

They don't wear shorts or denim blues

They wear their suits and shiny shoes

They stare at us with steely eyes.

It's no surprise ? from Men With Ties.
