One: two, three, four, Fortune!

has me well in hand armies, 'wait at my command My
gold lies in a foreign land buried deep beneath the sand The
angels guide my ev'ry tread my, enemies are sick or dead But
all the victories I've led haven't brought you to my bed CHORUS

You:
see everybody, loves me baby, what's, the matter with you Won'tcha?
tell me what did I do to offend you Now?

the purest race I've bred for thee to live in my democracy And
the highest human pedigree awaits the first-born boy baby And
my face on ev'ry coin engraved the, anarchists are all enslaved My
own flag is forever waved by the grateful people I have saved CHORUS

You:
see everybody, loves me baby, what's, the matter with you Won'tcha?
tell me what did I do to offend you Now?

no, land is beyond my claim when land is seized in the people's name By
evil men who rob and maim if, war is hell I'm, not to blame Why!
you, can't blame me I'm, Heaven's child I'm, the second son of Mary mild And
I'm twice removed from Oscar Wilde but, he didn't mind why, he, just smiled Yes

and, the ocean parts when I walk through and, the clouds dissolve and the sky turns blue I'm
held in very great value by everyone I meet but you 'cause
I've used my talents as I could I've, done some bad I've, done some good I
did a whole lot better than they thought I would so c'mon, and treat me like you should Because!

everybody loves me baby, what's, the matter with you Tell?
me what did I do to offend you Everybody?

loves me baby, what's, the matter with you Tell?
me what did I do to offend you Yeah?

everybody, loves me baby, what's, the matter with you Tell?
me what did I do to offend you
