They take your love and your money
They take your shugar and your honey
They take you skinny or fat
Hey how come people act like that?

They take your house and your home
They take the flesh from your bones
They take the shirt of your back
Hey how come people act like that?

They take your phone and your clock
They take everything that you got
They laugh behind your back
Yeah how come people act like that?

They take your love and your money
They take your shugar and your honey
They take you skinny or fat

Hey how come people act like that?

They take your house and your home
They take the flesh from your bones
They take the shirt of your back
Hey how come people act like that?

They take your phone and your clock
They take everything that you got
They laugh behind your back
Yeah how come people act like that?

Yeah how come people act like that?

How come people act like that?

I don't know why they act like that.
