What Are We Going To Do About The Rich?



"What Are We Going To Do About The Rich?"

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

They say democracy is simply very bad for business
While deploring student protests in the middle of Hong Kong
They insist that people have to work on zero contracts everywhere
So profit margins grow and shares are very strong
But one group that they never take to task
And one question that they never seem to ask
Is...

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

They're buyin' football clubs today with absolute impunity
And so much of the media to give themselves the power
To destroy the very notion and the feeling of community
While poisoning the public discourse hour by hour
But although it never seems to make it into Hansard
The question at some point must still be answered
Oh...

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

They're avoiding paying taxes
While the welfare state collapses
Their extravagance and arrogance
Their lack of tact to balance this
Their lawyers and their attitude
The scale of their ingratitude
They only give to charity
For maximum publicity

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

1. "Beauty is as Beauty does"

I do not condemn people based on their income. It is "by their actions they shall be known." imo

8. Dave Grohl once said...

Until then I'd never met what I'd call a real rock 'n' roll hero before. Fuck Elvis and Keith Richards, Lemmy's the king of rock 'n' roll – he told me he never considered Motörhead a metal band, he was quite adamant. Lemmy's a living, breathing, drinking and snorting fucking legend. No one else comes close

11. Hmm. I posted it twice. Must be a "no umlauts" rule for subject lines. (n/t)

13. That's correct. Also...

... no equal signs or accented characters. Best option for an umlaut is to use the "ue" or "oe" letter combination if appropriate.

10. Nosher!!!

Many thanks for posting that video! I've just emptied the house by turning it up to 11.

Brought back a lot of great memories of my own rock n' roll years, ha ha.
