"White Collar Crime" as written by Grace Jones and Bruce Woolley....
I'm not hungry, (?) throw away the key (?)
It's outrageous, nobody cares,

White collar crime, you had the time,
Blue collar crime, you'll do time every time,

Stealing from the company, taking all the profits,
Sharing with your family, drinking all the benefits,
(?), Shocking, it's all so mocking,

White collar crime, you don't have the time,
Blue collar crime, you'll do time every time,

You can get away with it, will they get away with it?
Do they get away with it? Yes, they get away with it.

Burn money today, free money tomorrow,
(?) goes my mind, causes so much sorrow,
(?), It's all the same, It's a money power game

White collar crime, you do the time,
Blue collar crime, you do time every time
White collar crime, you don't have the time,
Blue collar crime, you do time every time

All the same, money power game,
It's all the same, money power game,
It's all the same, It's a money power game,
All the same, it's a money, a money, power, the power game,
It's all the same.

    General CommentGrace Jones - White Collar Crime

    You're down and out and hungry,
    you rob the liquer store
    The pig throwed away the key
    after he's locked the door

    You were slapped on the hand
    after you stole little five hundred grams
    It's outrageous,
    nobody cares

    White collar crime -
    you don't have to do time
    Blue collar crime -
    you do time every time

    Stealing from a company
    Taking all the profits
    Sharing with your family
    Reaping all the benefits
    (?)
    You're shocking, it's all so mocking

    Do they get away with it
    Will they get away with it
    Do they get away with it
    Yes they get away with it

    Dirty money today
    Is clean money tomorrow
    (A crime, bah)? goes my mind
    Causes so much sorrow

    You take my land -
    protected by the law
    You steal one hand -
    "Hands up against the wall"

    It's all the same
    It'a a money-power game

    It's all the same
    Money-power game
