Jeff Simmons – If The Tables Of The World Were Turned Around lyrics

The horse that does the pullin gets the whippin
And he gets paid off with mighty little hay
And the man that does the workin takes a rakin
While the man that sits around gets all the pay

You read in the papers of a robber
And you hear where they catch one now and then
But the slickest and the shrewdest of all robbers
Does his robbin with a pencil or a pen

And that's one of the things that needs some changin
It would turn this whole wide world upside down
It would change all the realms of society
If the tables of the world were turned around

There are people in influential places
And these people pull a lot of crooked strings
Try to hold the workin man right on rock bottom
While they buy their fancy cars and diamond rings

Well I hope my little song does not offend you
But if it does then there's one thing I know
You can bet your shiny boots and bottom dollar
You have never touched a shovel or a hoe

And that's one of the things that needs some changin
It would turn this wide whole world upside down
It would change all the realms of society
If the tables of the world were turned around
If the tables of the world were turned around
