lyrics

been bankrupt since twenty-three
i got my references i got my degree
i come from the generation
was fed the lies of higher education
as meaning something more then debt and decay
all that money and now there's no pay

sallie-mae, sallie-mae
why do you treat me this way?
call me fifty times a day
well i ain't got your money honey
sallie-mae

so i borrowed more then the worth that i am
just following the footsteps of dear old uncle sam
and the lies that we were sold
when capital crack killed the american soul
tell me is that now the worth of a man?
an apathetic number in some greed driven scam?


sallie-mae, sallie-mae
why do you treat me this way?
call me fifty times a day
well i ain't got your money honey
sallie-mae
