In the second line I wanted to use "worker-man neighborhood" but it just didn't sound right for some reason. If anyone thinks I am stupid and should have used it, please lambaste me.

There’s an orange man with a black cape
Driving through a working-class neighborhood
He’s got Zenga jeans clinging to his waistline
He pulls over and takes out his checkbook
And there’s a woman in the kitchen
With a painful case of gout
And he Sonny Corleone’s her a check and says
“Hey darlin’ you got 30 minutes to get the hell out.”

That’s Satch’s America, a 1% dream
Satch’s America, ignoring her pleas, this is
Satch’s America, he can’t be appeased until he’s
Buying cheap houses and kicking out into the street

This is the definitive "Here's some cash, get out of this house" song. The joy of the chorus fits the theme so well

Anita, does that make you pro-tirb-ed (perturbed)?

Another gem from The Incomparable Robert Berg. I think we'll just start referring to you as TIRB.
