"Millionaires Against Hunger" as written by Jack Sherman, Cliff Martinez, Anthony Kiedis and Michael Peter Balzary....
We're millionaires
Against hunger

I'm a millionaire
And I got something to say
I got a million more that'll take me away
All those people starvin' everyday
As far as I'm concerned, why that's okay

Well I'm a millionaire too, but not like you
As far as I'm concerned, I got a job to do
I've got to pave the way, I've got to save the day
I've got to make it better, I've got to say
You and I, we're millionaires,
But we're a million miles away from the saint who stares
Upon the millions who die, every day of the week
Just because they can't get enough to eat
While we the rich dine on all these feasts,
And everything's fine, yeah peaches and creme
But it just isn't something you've got to realize,
There's something wrong, we've got to open our eyes
When the world cries, we just can't hide,
E've got a job to do, we've got to save some lives

We're millionaires
Against hunger

Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
Twice as nice when you share
Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
A spiritual price do you care
Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
Nice and Wise when you share
Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
Pave the way, take the Grail

I'm a millionaire
And I got something to say
I got three or four yachts on the Chesapeake Bay
All those people starvin' everyday
As far as I'm concerned, why that's okay

Well I'm a millionaire too
All I know that is true is that I've got more cash than I can use
I want anything that I can have,
But I don't need nothin' and I never have
Each damn day my heart's set far,
But I'll be okay, 'cause I don't starve
Kids from the street the losing their emotion so damn snobby so out of touch
With two hungry people who die as they stare at the city at night,
You know it gives to share
So listen up, you millionaires,
Every woman, every man, help all you can
All races unite, and I will now concern to the type of problem that helps us learn

We're millionaires
Against hunger

Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
Twice as nice when you share
Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
A spiritual price do you care
Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
Nice and wise when you share
Hey hey Mr. Millionaire
Pave the way, take the Grail

    General Commenthah yeh bono thinks hes king of the world..
    this is a funky song its great come on people what does it mean??I acctually doubt if this song is about them because when they released this they weren't doin to well so its probably about 'Mega Stars'.....

    O yeh this was released in the same year as liveaid 1985 it's about that, they were probably trying to get on it lol.

    General Commenti dont think they were millionaires when they made this song, so i think they were saying that once they were millionaires, then they could do something, or they could have just been mocking millionaires because most millionaires dont do shit to help people. regardless i still like the song, but it's not one of my favorites.

    General CommentIt's specifically a dig at the pop stars who played at Live Aid in 1985.
    Cf. "We Care a Lot" by Faith no More.
