Hank Williams Jr. – House Of Gold lyrics

People steal, they cheat, they lie
For wealth and what it will buy
But don't they know on the Judgment Day
All the gold and silver will melt away

I'd rather be in a deep dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul

What good is gold and silver too
If your heart's not good and true
Sinner hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray

For I'd rather be in a deep dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul

    With great power, comes great responsibility. Nestlé leaders in power should take heed of these words and pray for their salvation. For the last shall come first and the first shall come last. It's unconscionable that a company can boast their concern for "no harm to our people" in their strategic plans, but yet they accept workplace deaths of 80+ employees every year and they falsify records to cover up their mistakes instead of doing the right thing and being a company that others can admire.
