David Crosby – They Want It All lyrics

Written by David Crosby



They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how
They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how

Want that mercedez, that gulf stream two
They want to get, get it from you
They want your life savings
And your mothers ring
They'd like to have everything

They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how
They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how

They want that mansion, and they want it full
Of wine and women, and political pull
They always have a president or two
That's how they get away with what they do
That's how they do it

They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how
They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how

They bleed the companies, they're supposed to run
Ain't no different than taking
Your money with a gun
They make it to jamaica
And their wire comes through
They sacrafice a lawyer
And they're laughing at you

They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how
They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how

They don't get prosecuted, don't even get charged
The're somewhere in the sunbelt living it large
And the government says we can't prove
They did it at all
Besides they've got these underlings
Ready to take the fall

They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how
They want it all, they want it now
They want to get it and they don't care how

These people that they stole from
Who's lives they laid to waste
They should have to meet them all face to face
And explain just why their momma
Didn't teach 'em not to steal
If you want us to believe in justice
Justice better be real
Better be, better be, real
Got to be real
I'm talking to you now
Got to be real
You
They just don't give a damn
