REST EASY, WEALTHY GENTLEMEN
Rest easy, wealthy gentlemen,
Let nothing make us sigh.
We give our workers little crumbs
So we can keep the pie.
We pay our politicians
So they bear our needs in mind
As they line up to kiss our fat behinds,
If they’re inclined
They line up to kiss our fat behinds.
Don’t worry, wealthy gentlemen
Let nothing make us twitch.
This new global economy’s
Designed to keep us rich.
We ply our trade in many lands,
Let all their leaders come
To bend down and kiss us on the bum,
There’s a good chum,
Just bend down and kiss us on the bum.
