And before you leave this world
G9 A4* D
You got to paaaaaay the man

Of the senators in the fancy houses
He's a friend of Babylon
Got a wife and a dog and a cadillac
And people hung around
Got his ways and means and all he needs
To keep him satisfied
But before he leaves this world
He's got to pay the man

Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man
Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man

Sally had a baby
It almost drove her crazy
When she dropped her into the river
Now Sally she's a happy girl
And you see her on a corner
She's doing all the best she can
And she whispers to you?????
You got to pay the man

Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man
Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man

Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man
Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man

A capella

Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man

Pay the man
Everybody's got to pay the man
And before you leave this world
You got to pay the man

Matt Ozzy
Njoy!
