Miss Susie
traditional schoolyard melody, words by Anna Fritz

Miss Susie had a temp job
she worked just like a slave
and to the corporation
she gave away

Her days were filled with numbers
and staring at a screen.
She went through all the motions
to bring home a little

Green trees grow in forests
near lakes and waterfalls.
Miss Susie never saw them.
She’s trapped behind four

Walls are built to keep us
inside where we won’t see
the damage to the planet
or how we could be

Free to live our own lives,
free to work and play,
free to love and free to be
the masters of our days, days, days!
