Story behind the song
Even if you take a detour from life, that little steamboat just keeps chugging along. "Progress, don't like it. Progress, don't want it."
Is the bottom dropping out of your steamboat south? Well, Robert Fulton and all his crew had a lot of work to do so they sent a load of needles to your house. And they made... Progress, don't like it. Progress, don't want it. Progress, I see it caught you, too. Dragged those blocks from place to place. Been floating in the Nile of late. Well, Robert Fulton and all his crew set out to see what they could prove. But they built a pyramid that came unglued. And they made... Progress, etc. And it's 1, 2, all of you 3, 4, best ignore 5, 6, my nervous tics 7, 8, when I get straight. When I get straight.
