"Mr Greed" as written by and Fogerty....
Mr. Greed, why you got to own
Everything that you see?
Mr. Greed, why you put a chain on
Everybody livin' free?
You're hungerin' for his house,
You're hungerin' for his wife,
And your appetite will never be denied.
You're a devil of consumption
I hope you choke, Mr. Greed.

[Chorus]
How do you get away with robbin'?
Did your mother teach you how?
I hear you got away with murder,
Did you do your mama proud?

Mr. Greed, why you got to take
More than you can ever use?
Bring 'em to their knees
Isn't it enough
Just to win while they lose?
You bring no honor to the game,
You feast upon the blood and pain,
But the bones you hoard
Can only bring you shame.
There's corruption in your path,
Be that your epitaph, Mr. Greed.

[Chorus]
