"We Run the World" as written by and Tim Quirk Jay Blumenfield....
We run the world, we shape the earth
You can't even guess how much we're really worth
All of our crimes are plausibly denied
Our portfolies are so diversified

We're selling short, the bubble won't last long
We're buying up your block, we even own this song
We run the world
We all grew up in Darien
But the plans we hatch are so Wagnerian

We run the world

Machines of war are now the cars we drive
The scarier things get the more we seem to thrive
Miss Nipple Ring riding on the bus
Don't kid yourself 'cause you're one of us

When the bad men come with their dirty bombs
Won't distinguish you from any soccer mom
All the noise you make has been factored in
You're plotted on our graphs, we're very disciplined

We run the world

We put our name on your stadiums
And no one finds this troublesome
We're leasing space on poorer countries' flags
We'll rename your kid 'cause everything's an ad

We run the world
