Styling by Rose Chong Costumes. With art by Molly Crabapple

Lyrics:


Look left, look right, hold your money, hold it tight, it's the shell game
I win, you lose, you could always choose not to play

But i'm the only game in town so wipe off that frown and let's go again
You lost your house and your job, it's not my fault, you're a lazy slob

*
Everybody knows the game is fixed, the poor stay poor, the rich get richer
So why are you crying now? It's not like anything has changed
you're an adult playing the shell game

Everybody knows the game is fixed, the poor stay poor, the rich get richer
So why are you crying now? It's not like anything has changed
hand me those cups we'll play the shell game
*

You cry foul and unfair, say I just don't care about the rules,
You say I'm racist and biased. you call me an old sexist fool

You got a black president and women paying their own rent, so what's the problem?
You said you want equality, it's looking pretty good from up here.

*
Everybody knows the game is fixed, the poor stay poor, the rich get richer
So why are you crying now? It's not like anything has changed
you're an adult playing the shell game

Everybody knows the game is fixed, the poor stay poor, the rich get richer
So why are you crying now? It's not like anything has changed
hand me those cups we'll play the shell game
*
