Progress Is The Root Of All Evil lyrics

Progress Is The Root Of All Evil

Progress is the root of all evil,
Politics is breaking my heart.
Why ever since the first New Deal,
A man who has no mass appeal
is out of business.

If you don't believe me, ask Dewey
Go and see what Harriman says.
My friends say I could run for any
Office I seek
But first I'd have to brush up
On my TV technique,
I plan to get in touch with
Bob Montgomery next week.
Bring back the good old days!

Progress is the root of all evil
How's a busy man to relax?
I'd like to join a golf club --where?
They built a supermarket there.
And for the public!
Being wealthy seems to mean nothing.
Let me show you how the land lays:
I went to see the president,
They asked me to wait,
And tho' I knew that he was swamped
With matters of state,
A fellow named Ben Hogan
Walked right through the front gate!
Bring back the good old days!
