Intro -- Talking...
Where you see yourself going?
You think you got what it takes?
Let's see how bad you want it
Hey, that's how the system works
You better get used to it

How low are you willing to go
To make it to the top
You better want it badder than me
‘Cause I won't ever stop

I know what sells, I know it well
I ain't afraid of selling out
I'm all about the bottom line
‘Cause ain't that what it's all about

POWER (power), SEX (sex), MONEY (money)
Whatever they can think of next
It's just a game
And if you want in
I'll race you to the bottom
Whoever dies with the most wins
I'll race you to the bottom

In the bar
In my car
I'm workin' overtime
While you're on vacation
Or at your kid's graduation night
Well that's what it takes
To get a break
It's dirty and low down
Who cares if it ain't fair
What makes the world go round is

POWER (power), SEX (sex), MONEY (money)
Whatever they can think of next
It's just a game
And if you want in
I'll race you to the bottom
Whoever dies with the most wins

Greed is good
Yeah that's what they say
It's just misunderstood
Hey, don‘t blame me
I didn't make it that way

Whatever they can think of next
It's just a game
And if you want in
I'll race you to the bottom
Whoever dies with the most wins
I'll race you to the bottom

POWER, SEX, MONEY
I'll race you to the bottom
(repeats/fades out with misc. background talking -- Hey, sweet cheeks are you willing to work a little late tonight
If you want that promotion you gotta go around me
What you willin' to do for me
Ain't nobody gonna know
You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours...)
