Fun in the First World, Ron Thaler Production 2016

by Andy Pratt



Original 80s song by Andy Pratt produced by Ron Thaler 2016


we got bad habits
we got relational curse
we know we're the leaders
it gets worse and worse

Fun in the First world
oh yeah, we're having fun
Fun in the First world
We're having fun so please don't come

We give great big orders
to get to where the slaves and the oil are
don't care how you do it
don't let nobody spoil our

Fun in the First world...

We can see it coming/ we got that shaky feeling
this can't go on much longer
so we're buying up guns
and locking our doors

Fun in the First world...

See the modern computerized empire stretching forth over the paths
our predecessors laid down. People, who needs people? We have robots.

Fun in the First world....
