BROTHER

Brother where d’you get that silver?

Brother where d’you get that gold?

Brother where did you get everything

that lets you rule my world?

I used to think you were so clever

but now I know the truth

and it really hurts

 

You come to buy my body

you come to buy my mind

you come to buy everything

you need but can’t provide

I thought you were the business

but now the business’s mine

and you think it’s fine

 

I ask you a simple question:

where d’you come from?

where d’you come from?

What did you do yesterday,

how d’you get here?

how d’you get here?

And you can’t say…

 

I remember when you were little

you were always first in line

I used to bring you biscuits

I used to waste your time

I used to think you were the bee’s knees

but now my knees are tired

and you say that I’m fired

 

And you say that he’s a scrub

cos he does not own a car

cos he wastes his time with cats and dogs

and flowers and guitars

you think the world applauds you

you say you’re helping us all

but why do we want to see you fall?

 

We ask you a simple question:

where d’you come from?

where d’you come from?

What did you do yesterday,

how d’you get here?

how d’you get here?

And you can’t say…

BROTHER
