I'm Changing My Name To Chrysler Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

by Tom Paxton 


Oh the price of gold is rising out of sight 

And the dollar is in sorry shape tonight 

What the dollar used to get us now won't buy a head of lettuce 

No the economic forecast isn't right 

But amidst the clouds I spot a shining ray 

I can even glimpse a new and better way 

And I've devised a plan of action worked it down to the last fraction 

And I'm going into action here today 



I am changing my name to Chrysler 

I am going down to Washington D.C. 

I will tell some power broker 

What they did for Iacocca 

Will be perfectly acceptable to me 

I am changing my name to Chrysler 

I am headed for that great receiving line 

So when they hand a million grand out 

I'll be standing with my hand out 

Yes sire I'll get mine 


When my creditors are screaming for their dough 

I'll be proud to tell them all where they can all go 

They won't have to scream and holler 

They'll be paid to the last dollar 

Where the endless streams of money seem to flow 

I'll be glad to tell them what they can do 

It's a matter of a simple form or two 

It's not just renumeration it's a liberal education 

Ain't you kind of glad that I'm in debt to you 




Since the first amphibians crawled out of the slime 

We've been struggling in an unrelenting climb 

We were hardly up and walking before money started talking 

And it's sad that failure is an awful crime 

Well it's been that way for a millenium or two 

But now it seems that there's a different point of view 

If you're a corporate titanic and your failure is gigantic 

Down to congress there's a safety net for you
