lyrics

Let’s go dahn to the Point
Let’s go dahn for the day
Goin dahn the Pittsburgh
Festival of Art and Rain

Meet me at the corner of Stanwix
By the subway that goes seven blocks
Under the Allegheny but over the Mon
Guess it seemed a good idea at the time

Maybe this is the year
The year I buy some art
Hang it on the wall
Remember today
Every time I look at that wall

Let’s go dahn to the Point
Let’s go dahn for the day
Goin dahn the Pittsburgh
Festival of Art and Rain

Paid eight bucks for a gyro
Nobody was selling none for five
Next year I’ll bring a cooler
Next year I’ll bring a chair
I say that every year
Gonna kick off my shoes
Gonna walk in the grass
Gonna stand in the fountain and get cool
I will not go in the river
No one should go in the river
But the fountain, it’s a fountain, so that’s cool.

Let’s go dahn to the Point
Let’s go dahn for the day
Goin dahn the Pittsburgh
Festival of Art and Rain

Sometimes I sit in my apartment
And I think I’d like to live in a house
Home sweet home
With my wife and my cats and my kids
And a reasonable mortgage

But used houses are too expensive
Sticker price eight years salary
Inflation they say it’s why you gots to pay
So the banks can own the folks like me

After World War II your house cost seven grand new
You paid 45 in ’83.
Well, you put down ten percent
And some back chipped in the rest
Now you’re paying them with interest
And occasional late fees

Cause you don’t own your house
The bank really owns your house
You could not afford it then
45 in ‘83
But you’d really like to get 195

Drive a new car off the lot
It’s worth less instantly
Depreciation’s why you can’t get 65
For your ’94 Mitsubishi

But used houses- that’s different
They’re worth more and more every day
So says the banks
The banks that own the house
And the folks in the house who never saved

After World War II your house cost seven grand new
You paid 45 in ’83.
And you’d really like to get 195
So you’re listing it for 223

Used houses are too expensive
Used houses are artificially rigged
Used houses screwed up the economy
Screwed an entire generation of your kids

Let’s go dahn to the Point
Let’s go dahn for the day
Goin dahn the Pittsburgh
Festival of Art and Rain

Let’s go dahn to the Point
Let’s go dahn for the day
Goin dahn Three Rivers
Festival of Art
Festival of Art
Festival of Art and Rain
