MOVERS AND SHAKERS ?
That's ok... Bible thumper ‘cross the street won't miss you.
Right over here. C'mon folks. Reality check time.
There, that's better.
You know these soap box hell and damnation types are ruining us.
Yes they are.
Now, common sense-you all got common sense. I can tell.
You got that look of "prove it, Preacher," in your eyes.
Common sense dictates that some times we know when we're bad
And we know when we're good, right?
That's it... move up and down. Yes is a nod. Ya-yus! You got it.
Now... some of you are hard workin' salt-of-the-earth types. I can tell. Oh yeah.
Got those brown caked earthy caps on the knees of your jeans.
Hands all stained with the juice of the grapes.
Yeah, I can tell. Pickin' is bitchin' right? And I don't mean easy.
It's hard, right?
Up and Down. Nodding! Great! Now, let's see.
On my right... this little spiffy group right over here.
Now, salt-of-the-earth, you hold on, ‘cause you gonna merge with the spiffies-
right over here.
Now, you guys, and you are guys. I can tell.
Got your shined shoes, and Windsor knots tied to perfection. I can tell.
I can see some manicured nails mixed in there too.
You be the guys that makes everything run in this country, right?
Ya-yus. See, you know the value of a nod.
Now, you guys look over there... over there to my salt-of-the-earth brothers. OK.
Now you sugar-in-my-coffee bros are seein' maybe for the first time why salt
comes before sugar, right?
The folks over here, mamas, papas, single parenting mothers, orphaned kids,
Yeah, all of them.
They till and toil in the fields so you electronic age
Digital bean counters can work up the number of grape cases
That send your kids to private school
Buy the gas for those custom Hummers and Aviators
Great inventions those tow guzzlers, right?
So, salt keeps their jobs cause sugar knows how to count...
That's right, up and down, you got it now... Ya-Yus!
Everybody noddin' cause it's all good, right?
Everybody got jobs.
Jose and Maria over there with their 10 kids got the old '76 pick-up
Plenty of room for everybody, right? Sure.
Lots of room to get back to the tents and bunk houses, right?
And Windsors, shoes, and nails over there got their fingers roamin' over their
They handle Blackberries all day, just like you handle grapes
Playin' their little keyboards, countin', puttin' in the basket, tallying up
Cashin' in. Yup... makin occasional e-mails, digital, instant messagin'
That's my Movers and Shakers makin' it possible for the
Salt-of-the-Earth ... yeah!
You're Movers and Shakers too
Shakin' the bushes
Fillin' up those crates. Yeah.
Now, long walk down the furrows to get to my point.
That's what we're talkin' ‘bout here, right? Good.
Damn, you all nod the same now.
COMMON SENSE DICTATES THAT YOU ARE GETTING SCREWED OVER, SALTY ONES. YOU'RE GETTING' FUCKED. YOU ARE THE FUCKEES AND OVER HERE IN THE MESSING-UP-OF-THE-PRIMORDAL-BALANCE- OF-LIFE ARE THE FUCKORS!
This is the COMMON SENSE answer you're denying yourselves now.
And yes, my salt barons and sugar barons,
My brothers and sisters, we can all get along, if
WE ALL OBEY ORDERS, RIGHT? Listen and obey the BIG GUY.
Not your foreman in the fields.
Not your CEO, CFO, President and Chairman of the Board,
But the one -- BIIIG -- GUYYYYYY -- in -- the -- sky!
You know who I'm talkin' about.
He don't like no fuckees and fuckors.
He likes everything as ONE. We are all ONE in the Big Guy's eyes.
So, having said that, and in thanks for me relievin' you of guilt the fire and brimstone crazy on that box across the street would have you believe
My assistant here is passin' ‘round the hat for the sugars to deposit...
And for us salts to use in good faith... Any loose hundreds, fifties
Even them little twenties are good in the bank of the Big Guy.
Common sense tell you I ain't got no shined shoes, no Windsor knotted tie
God knows my fingernails worked to the bone with the janitorial stuff
My assistant and I have to take care of at nights.
HEY! You guys. Where you goin'?
Assistant, throw in some twenties... God damn it.
Big Guy's gonna have our asses
SHAKE IT! MOVE IT, ASSISTANT!
