lyrics

I don’t wanna be the kind of man
Who’s living large stealing bread from somebody’s hand
No no no no no no no no no no no
Dont wanna be that man
Now some of you wouldn’t understand
Like you who
See dollar signs when you look at your fellow man
You wouldn’t understand
You wouldn’t understand
You wouldn’t understand
No no no no no you wouldn’t understand

But if you stood out in the rain
Of this world that we have made
You would see the signs that something has gone wrong here
And does our hunger have a name
Other than greed that knows no shame
And if it doesn’t how are we supposed to get along here
Each one looking out for number one?

Don’t wanna be the kind of man
Who’ll cheat you for a dime most any way he can
No no no no no no no no no no no
Don’t wanna be that man
And if you live the big life selling scams
Then you would not
Be one of those who could begin to understand
You wouldn’t understand
You couldn’t understand
You wouldn’t understand
No no no no you wouldn’t understand

But if you stood out in the rain
Of this world that we have made
You would see the signs that something has gone wrong here
And does our hunger have a name
Other than greed that knows no shame
And if it doesn’t how are we supposed to get along here
Each one looking out for number one?
