Bogmen – What's Behind Your Coat? lyrics

He says hes an honest man
Taxes not included
Hes pinstriped and naturally tan
Tan from all the shine hes running under your nose

He says that hes a moral man
Its easy when youve got the money
He claims hes a law abiding man
Whats so great about that when you control the law?

Let me see your hands

This particular fellar
Says he's a religious man
And he sips his wine with reverance
His faith is locked in the can
And he drinks it down until it's almost empty

There's a rumor this one's a second-class man
And pushed into the corner
It's all part of the suppression plan
This is after he ditched his wife and family

Let me see your hands

You say that youre a hard working man
And the rest of the world is lazy
You lead the world in production
All work - no play and your people are all fuckin' crazy
Tell me your a proper man
Your manners over-shadow your morals
You devised the suppression plan
I think youve got your soupspoon too far up your ass!

Name that man!
