Quit school when she was seventeen
Senator on TV calls her welfare queen
Used to be daddy's little girl
Now she needs help in this mean ol' world

Buys cassette tapes in the bargain bin
Loves Carlene Carter and Loretta Lynn
Tries to have fun on a Saturday night
Sunday morning don't shine too bright

It's welfare music
Watch the baby dance
To the welfare music
Well she ever stand a chance?

Takes two to make three but one ain't here
Still chasing women and drinking beer
Says nobody understands how he feels
But that don't pay the monthly bills

Angry fat man on the radio
Wants to keep his taxes way down low
Says there oughta be a law
Angriest man you ever saw

Welfare music
Just watch the baby dance
To the welfare music
Well she ever stand a chance?

Solo

Baby dance circles on the floor
Round and round just like before
Baby fall down
Baby get up
Baby needs a drink from a lovin' cup

It's welfare music
Watch the baby dance
To the welfare music
Well she ever stand a chance?

Welfare music
Just watch the baby dance
To the welfare music
Well she ever stand a chance?
