NOT ANOTHER BENEFIT (Music by Marie-Lynn Hammond, Marilyn Lerner / Lyrics by Marie-Lynn Hammond) friends I have a problem 'that I'd like to address and it may be peculiarly mine in these days of unemployment I am forced to confess yours truly's working overtime my phone is ringing madly they all want me oh so badly there's only one hitch I can see oh no! it's a benefit, not another benefit and when are they gonna benefit me I've played for day care, pro-choice, Greenpeace, world peace labour causes, unfair laws and Latin American solidarity I've stopped Spadina*, failed to stop the Cruise, I've saved the whales and wolves I've tried to save the N.D.P.** now ain't it kinda funny how we're always raising money for the things in life that ought to be free oh no! it's a benefit, not another benefit and when are they gonna benefit me the phone rings and a voice says "hi we haven't met, in fact I must admit I've never heard of you at all but someone at a meeting said her sister said her lover said we really ought to give you a call our situation's critical she says you're quite political and feminist and always play for free..." oh no! it's a benefit, not another benefit and when are they gonna benefit me and when the bankers finally get me 'cause I haven't paid my debts be sure you're ready to call up Nancy White for me and she'll say oh no it's a benefit, not another benefit and when are they gonna benefit me (3) * an expressway planned for downtown Toronto ** The N.D.P. is sort-of left wing Canadian political party
