Money is the root of evil

This piece of paper rules our lives

Do we have enough to live?

Do we have enough to give?


Some have money to burn

Spending cash on frivolities

Money for new gold watches

Money for pet haircuts and homes


People who work all week

To go to the food bank to feed the kids

Every day get up and kiss the kids

Every day work and grind for what?


The rich they trample and ignore

Laugh and scream so obscene

Look at me, look at what I’ve got

Look at me you low-class lot


Bleeding sweat we carry on

Middle class and all below

Why do some get and others don’t

Why is wealth not shared throughout


Money is the root of evil

Don’t let the paper rule your life

Stand up and shout to all about

We will survive we have no doubt
