For Godґs sake, you got to give more power to the people

Thereґs some people up there hogginґ everything
Tellinґ lies, givinґ alibis about the peopleґs money and things
And if they gonna throw it away, might as well give some to me
Yeah they seen and heard it, but never had misery
There are some people who are starvinґ to death
Never knew but only hate us [?], and they never had happiness
Oh, oh, oh, if you donґt have enough to eat, how can you think of love
You donґt have the time to care so itґs crime youґre guilty of, oh yeah

For Godґs sake, you got to give more power to the people
For Godґs sake, why donґt you give more power to the people

Cut this jive and see whoґs got the power to kill the most
When they run out of power, the worldґs gonna be a ghost
They know weґre not satisfied, so we begin to holler
Makinґ us a promise and throwinґ a few more dollars
Thereґs no price for happiness, thereґs no price for love
Up goes the price of livinґ, and youґre right back where you was
So whatever you got, just be glad you got it
Now weґre gonna get on up and get some more of it
