Money making

People are often living only to make money

They think its the only important thing

They believe it’s the only way to get on

And they don’t mind exploiting

Other people, family and friends

To achieve their ends

And of course we all need money

I need to pay my bills and pay me rent

But I will do it without exploitation

Climbing over others to get to the top

And not knowing when or how to stop

Treading on others for a foot up

That’s not how I go about things

If you are good to others on your way up

If you fall one they’ll help you back up

But if you are remembered for being mean

When you fall they will leaving laying there at the scene

Or your failure to maintain your position in life

That you carved out for yourself by not being very nice

It’s a wicked enough world we live in

Without you adding to it your bitterness and spite

We can all be money making

If we all work together without forsaking

Our humanity and our love

Of money see, there is always enough

But it won’t keep you warm at night

You can’t buy health and you can’t buy a happy life

Kid yourself you can

And you’ll only be fooling yourself money man

I wonder one day if you will ever understand.
