A song I'd always heard about...

...but never heard before, until today, Guy Drake's "Welfare Cadillac"...

I've never worked much, In fact
I've been poor all my life
I guess all I really own
Is ten kids and a wife
This house I live in is mine
But it's really a shack
But I've always managed to somehow
drive me a brand new Cadillac.
Wow. Bet THAT one pissed some folks off back in the day. How true it was and is I don't know, but just...damn.
