Puppets in the dance are we
Or do we call the tune
Were keeping up our ratings
While we feed you wreck and ruin
Thespians of revolution, money in the bank
With our college boy lisps

Brown ale gurus sunday supplement priests
Lunch with urban guerillas
On expense account receipts
Opinionated interviews
From an informed source
Cant tell you no names
Secret of course

We are the people
I am you, you are me
We are the people, I am you, you are me
Any fool can see all the people
We are the people

Were on the side of politicians
Misquote their lies
Building up those favors
We collect on bye and bye
On the side of winners
We can change with the fees
Give us your proposition
Were only here to please

We are the people
I am you, you are me
We are the people
I am you, you are me
Any fool can see all the people
We are the people

Oh, please defend me
Dont ask for my surrender
We are the kings, youre the pretenders
You walk and Ill talk
Stop ringing my doorbell with questions

Subscribe--view us--listen to us
Weve got the plan
Weve got all the answers
And weve got your man
We can change the format
If the sales go down
And we got girls for everyone
Yellow, pink or brown

We are the people..............chorus to fade

(mccafferty/agnew)
