lyrics

If I wanted to find myself a little girlfriend, I’d swoon one of these christian girls
Who goes to church on Sundays, works nine to five, is gracious and thankful just to be alive
But me I don’t believe in god or fate, no higher power’s telling me to procreate just yet

If I wanted to go out to try and find my soul, I guess I’d buy a plane ticket, fly across globe
Where I’d meet a lot kids who all claim they’re free, fully funded soul searching with someone's money
To me that all still sounds like some consumerist shit, no I don’t wanna hear about your life changing trip again

Them yuppie blues, broadcast on television screens
Them yuppie blues are weighing down on me
Them yuppie blues, oh stop, them yuppie blues
If you ain’t careful, well the yuppie blues are gonna come right down on you

If I wanted to go out try and find some fame, I’d be the loudest voice and call everyone names
Politicians and artists, social activist teams stand by locked and loaded hoping for someone to be mean
But to me they’re all just part of the same dumb coin, each convinced that they’re right, and all you gotta to do is join today

Them yuppie blues, broadcast on television screens
Them yuppie blues are weighing down on me
Them yuppie blues, god damn, them yuppie blues
If you ain’t careful, well the yuppie blues are gonna come down hard on you
