A very BAD parody of the A Team about President Hoover and the Great Depression for my history homework. Lyrics and terrible vocals by Tom Atherton (me) I wasn't taking this too seriously. I suck I know! lol. No copyright infringement intended, Chords and melody are not my own work and are property of Ed Sheeran and his management.

Lyrics (Approximately anyway!):
America, was a promise land,
Made its money on supply and demand,
Everything, got out of hand,
Wall Street, went crash,
Left no one with any cash,
Prices all got slashed,
Chorus:
And they say,
We're going into recession,
Calling it the great depression,
Obsession, with buying and selling shares on the margin,
And we're, living in Hoovervilles,
Because employers couldn't pay the bills,
It's too cold outside, tonight,
And Hoover my friend what did you do?
You left your people eating Hoover Stew,
It's too cold outside, for business to thrive,
Verse:
You tried to buy, the surplus,
All that money just wasn't enough,
Industry is going bust,
You gave money, so people could build,
Now the Economy it really killed,
The melting pot, has been spilled
Chorus:
And they say,
We're going into recession,
Calling it the great depression,
Obsession, with buying and selling shares on the margin,
Now we live in the Hoovervilles,
Can't be rugged individuals,
It's too cold outside, tonight,
And Hoover my friend can't you see?
Did you take an arrow to the knee?
It's too cold out side, for business to thrive,
For business to thrive,
Now we live in the Hoovervilles,
Farmers reaching for cyanide pills,
Its freezing cold outside, tonight,
We're all desperate for charity,
But we don't want your sympathy,
It's too cold outside, for business to thrive,
How will we survive?
How will we survive?
