See the little girl with the little girl in her arms
Watch her as you drive by in your Cadillac
And wonder what she did to sink so low
And wonder what it 's like to get old

The president is rich as sin but he don't care
The minimum wage protects his fortune
If being rich as you want is a natural right
Then being poor is a natural wrong

Capitalism is a tool invented by mortal men
Capitalism is supposed to bring a better life for everyone
Capitalism cannot justify the world
Capitalism cannot justify a human death

See the little girl with the little girl in her arms
Watch her as you drive by in your Cadillac
And wonder what she did to sink so low
And wonder what it 's like to get old

The little boy down the way, he sells crack
Our neighbor from apartment B, she shoots smack
A little too much TV, it gets them every time
Robin Leech is a communist plot

Capitalism is a tool invented by mortal men
Capitalism is supposed to bring a better life for everyone
Capitalism cannot justify the world
Capitalism cannot justify a human death
