They don't pay us enough
to suffer for the trust
I'm gonna take what's mine
before the cause gets just
take what's mine before I run out of time
before the face on the monument
pays me a compliment

Every now and then I think of how I could've been
if the candidate I backed had been a good time
drinks for my enemies, sunny days in front of me
I used to want love, but now I want money
East coast, west coast, I think I'll lighten my load
and dump my luggage, and fall in line
stuck in the middle with no voice, no coach
nuthin but a river and a shoreline

They don't pay us enough
to suffer for the trust
I'm gonna take what's mine
before the cause gets just
take what's mine before I run out of time
before the face on the monument
pays me a compliment

I'd like to thank the academy, once again for lettin' me
stand up here to tell you how I feel
and when I win again I think I'll bring my girlfriend
and leave my mama back in East Moline
yeah when I win again I think I'll thank the service men
and the government cuz now I got money, they're my friends
the teachers and the realtors, the rotary and police
the posse with the philosophy of what it is to be free

to be free
to be free
to be free...

They don't pay us enough
to suffer for the trust
I'm gonna take what's mine
before the cause gets just
take what's mine before I run out of time
before the face on the monument
before the face on the monument
before the face on the monument
pays me a compliment
