lyrics

Because of powers that be
Surely it's not gonna be so easy
To wrest a little bitty piece of power
From the hands of the great endowers
A petty thing we can afford
They keep the money moving back and forth but

I don't need it
I don't need it
I don't need it
Anymore

Because we like to rest assured
It turns us into little canary birds
Who buy a bigger better faster machine
To make a dull life more interesting
All the fanciest things that you see
Ohhh the diamonds will be dazzling.

I don't need it
I don't need it
I don't need it
Anymore

And when the company come to the door
You know what they they came here for
Come inside and have a drink with me
I'll help myself to your gold fillings

I don't need it
I don't need it
I don't need it
Anymore

When your company come to the door
You know what they they came here for
Come and have a drink with me
Help myself to your gold fillings

Deep underground lies the heart of it all
