lyrics

Hey Ho, CEO, I just want you to know

You're not a hundred times smarter than me

You're not a hundred times stronger than me

You don't work a hundred times harder than me

So why are you a hundred times richer?



And sometimes I wonder, do you wonder too?

If it was me instead of you, who's to say what I would do?

You know it's hard to say no to power and money

Yeah, I'd probably do the same, I'd probably be as much to blame

For the lives of the homeless and the hungry



Hey Ho, African man, I just wanna understand

I'm not a hundred times smarter than you

I'm not a hundred times stronger than you

I sure don't work a hundred times harder than you

So why am I a hundred times richer?



And sometimes I wonder, do you wonder too

If it was you instead of me, would it turn out differently?

You know it's hard to say no to power and money

Or would you show us a better way, and lead us to a brighter day

In the lives of the homeless and the hungry?



Hey Ho, CEO / Hey Ho, African man

Hey Ho, CEO / No, no, no, say it ain't so

Hey Ho, African man / I just wanna understand 


And sometimes I wonder, do you wonder too

Why we do unto others the way that we do?
