LUISTER EENS










The big ones get



Hey, Baby I just got back from town

where the bribes are paid

Honey, they turned my offer down

they say the deal's already made

So now I gotta stand and watch

while it all comes down

and the buzzards and the hawks

and the judges and the mob

circle around



Now if I were the queen of all the world

I would go in chains just to see you free

of the ropes that bind you

and the role you play

and the pride that hooks you

while the big ones get away

Love junkies wanna change the world:

it quickly stays the same

Money junkies hire all the smart ones

Power junkies run the game

One step at a time

Polarity Hill

If the bad guys don't get you Baby

then the good guys will


With angels on the take

and the gangsters in the yard

Hey don't the wars come easy

Hey don't the peace come hard

Now if I had a way to reach the sky

I'd grab that crescent moon

wield it like a knife

save you from the lies

From the ropes that bind you

and the role you play

and the game that hooks you

while the big ones get away





Buffy Sainte-Marie
