I have been ringing your doorbell,

But you left me standing in the hall

And you make love by the numbers,

That doesn't mean there's any love at all

Now there you go with a big explanation

Why do you waste your time?

And there you go, under estimation

Of the thoughts that cross my mind

This is your promise that you put up for sale

It's done like a picture from a fairy tale,

But still there's a difference, let me show it to you,

This is crapola, this is shinola

I see you're still in the headlines

You pegged the latest trend again this week

I'm not impressed by the outfit,

Or your revolutionary chic

And here it comes,

I see you forming the words, you're performing the exercise

And here it comes,

It's the feeling that i heard the same speech a hundred times

This is the jabber of a chimpanzee

The motion of your mouth looks much the same to me

The differentiation might be hard to see,

But this is crapola, this is shinola

Everyone's talking, few of them know

The rest are pretending, they put on a show

And if there's a message i guess this is it

Truth isn't easy, the easy part's sh**

And here it comes,

Now i'm forming the words, i'm performing the exercise

And here it comes

It's the feeling that i've made the same speech a million times

These are your leaders, come on take a look

They'll lie and cheat and steal then sell the rights to the book

And these are your neighbors who have swung to the right,

But you don't have to worry just as long as you're white

And my generation is just waiting to die

We'll swallow anything if it would just get us high

I don't know who's a bigger fool,

But one thing i know

This is crapola, this is shinola
