Guru Man

The slick-talking guru
came in from the Coast
a data programmer
more cunning than most
He stepped into Marlowe’s
a bar off the Strip
as Happy Hour ended
he’d established a grip
An oil man from Houston
bought into the scheme
Quick money!
No strings!
The
American
Dream

Look out
here comes
The Guru Man
peddling a promise
like Peter Pan
You know he thinks
he’s Superman
but don't you just see
a slick con man!

An abandoned oil patch
became the grow op
Mexican migrants
slaved sun-up non-stop
The sitting senator
gave the endorsement
the old county sheriff
stopped drug enforcement
An upstanding business
sweet as ice cream
Quick money!
No strings!
The
American
Dream

Look out
here comes
The Guru Man
peddling a promise
like Peter Pan
You know he thinks
he’s Superman
but don't you just see
a slick con man!

The left hand’s in
the right hand pocket
You want the moon
he has the rocket
You want the stars
and you want the sun
Don't stick with him
you’ll get undone

One Monday in April
elections were fought
the slick-talking guru
was hastily bought
Witness protection
meant back to the Coast
to found God’s Church
of Our Holy Ghost
Service the starlets
skim off the cream
Quick money!
No strings!
The
American
Dream

Look out
here comes
The Guru Man
peddling a promise
like Peter Pan
You know he thinks
he’s Superman
but don't you just see
a slick con man!

Next shady venture
a widows’ date site
scam up-front money
before taking flight
Banks offshore
prevented all tracing
dollars got doubled
at crooked horse racing
Guru Man's playbook
big fish in the stream
Quick money!
No strings!
The
American
Dream

Look out
here comes
The Guru Man
peddling a promise
like Peter Pan
You know he thinks
he’s Superman
but don't you just see
a slick con man!
Watch out
avoid the G-Man’s team
Quick money!
No strings!
The
American
Dream

Watch out
avoid the G-Man’s team
Quick money!
No strings!
The
American
Dream

Watch out
avoid the G-Man’s team
Quick money!
No strings!
The
American
Dream
