lyrics


He got five million in the bank, he owes ten million more

He give thousands to his rich pals, he give pennies to the poor

He got a lot of farms and factories down by the equator

When the workers there demand their share, they get a new dictator



Yeah, he'll spend a lot on limousines and giant televisions

And he will gladly donate money for a freeway or a prison

But when the public schools and libraries come begging for a dollar

Yeah, the richest man in history, see him cry and holler



He don't wanna share, he don't wanna share

He don't wanna share, he don't really care oh no no no no



Yeah, he's always going on about liberty and freedom

He's a real champion of justice for anyone in need

Just as long as that anyone is someone unrelated

'Cause his house was built by slaves on land he stole from natives



Yeah, he got body guards, burglar alarms, barbed wire too

They say his dogs eat better food than his neighbor's children do

He shares this town with lots of folks, he thinks he owns it all

Watch out! Pride and greed and ignorance, they go before a fall


He don't wanna share...
