Check It Out

by Keith Anderson © Andisongs
(from the album Retrospective on I-Anka)

Come listen to me
I've made a discovery
I want to share it with you
I'll have you know that it's true
Multinationals are really criminals
All forms of gambling
There's no way you can win

Open your eyes
It's time you realise
That the rise in the price
Is to make more money
For who's got plenty
And the trick of the trade
Is to keep all the hungry bellies empty

Check it out, check it out, check it out, check it out

It's the break of the day
It's time now you have a say
You've been sleeping all night
Now it's time for the light
Come see these legal crooks
Who learn their tricks by the books
So-called disciples of God
Who rule with an iron rod
Open your eyes
It's time you realise
That the rise in the price
Is to make more money
For who's got plenty
And the trick of the trade
Is to keep all the hungry bellies empty
