Lyrics

What’s just another couple degrees
Creeping up on the mercury?
What’s just another couple of towns
Running from the waters rising up all around?

It’s all for a handful of men
Who pick the public pocket and wink like we’re friends
It’s all “roll up your sleeves and scratch for dimes”
So we can break the piggy bank at bailout time

Oh, and then again
Oh, and then again
We’re seven billion people strong

What’s just another century
Bingeing boom and bust like it’s a soap on tv?
What’s just another couple clowns
Inheriting the working world like it was a crown?

It’s all for that handful of guys
Who live to play a game of chance with other people’s lives
It’s all “pinch your pennies, put in your time”
But there’s never no money for nothing and never you mind why

Oh, and then again
Oh, and then again
We’re seven billion people strong

We all do well when we all do well
We all do well when we all do well

We’re seven billion people strong
And seven billion can’t be wrong

We all do well when we all do well
We all do well when we all do well
