lyrics

Wish I was Sam Giancana,
Wish I was Julius Caesar
The world wouldn’t deny me my god given birthright
And the trials of life would become easier

A thousand bottles of your best Boujalais
Sitting in the sun all day
And I don’t mind if I do!

Now listen here Mr. Hand-me-Down
And all those who truly believe
That the world is made for all the golf carts and tennis courts
That one man could possibly need,
They say if you love something then give it away.
But I guess it’s just a matter of taste,
And I don’t mind if I do!

And the peaced punk says
Please be honest baby
That the needs of the few
Outweigh the needs of the many
Or the chosen few
Who say so to so many...
"What’s a tyrant to do,
What’s a tyrant to do…
What’s a tyrant to do with a chosen few?"
But give another barrel a day
To those with ten thousand dollar plates...
They say if you love something, don’t let it go to waste
And I don’t mind if I do!

And we who die in love with cause over all apprehension,
Die of a disease too terrifying to mention.
And if the members of the press could ask their final questions,
The management at this restaurant...
would like to teach you a lesson.
