Blowin’ in the wind

Why must we be fined with tax, for workin’ for the nation?
Yes, ‘n’ how much time will it take before … we’ll quit our occupation?
Why won’t we turn where the tax breaks are, in real ’state speculation?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.

How many times can pol’ticians cry tears, ’bout housing ’ford-abil-ity?
If they can tax everything else, but let our land rent go free?
Why let economic rent escape, though it is stup-id-ity?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.

How many times can real estate busts bring on social disjoint?
And why is it that ‘conomists are missin’ the point?
Yes, ‘n’ how many times must the tax system fail – before we a land rent appoint?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Why do they bail out all of the banks, when they killed off effective demand?
Henry George showed how to remedy boom ‘n’ bust – what’s to understand?
Let people keep what they have earned, and take the rent of land,
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Britain’s landlords in 1909, killed off “The People’s Budg-et”,
But promoted war in 1914 … lest – we – forget,
So The Powers That Be’d rather go to war, than the public’s land rent collect?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.
