how come you prophet while i profit not
aren't we both eating from the same pot
you get the meat, while i get the bone
you drink the stew and leave me the stone
i see the bucket full, you say it empty
i see the bucket full, you say it empty
i see the bucket full
i want my food

how come you big while i am small?
im not so tiny to help you at all
you may be goliath, but i am the king
and at your head will i aim my sling

(chorus)

how come you use the bucket to draw your fill
while we are waiting at the well still
time slows down, the days grow long
but i am still singing the same old song
