Up on the hill
In a cash-bank tower
A pinstripe crown
With a gun

A bird's-eye view
Of the golden few
But please tell me
What is it they do?

I called in sick
Moved offshore
Too bored to change again

I give with one
I take with two
Add them up
And give them away

Once a year I get to watch the little people
Pick the pieces up and tiptoe into the fire
And if it's time you've got
Or if it's cash you've got
Give it to me or throw it away

You'll never get me
I can't be touched
Launched a raft above your heads
You'll never get me
I can't be touched
'Cos I can't be touched

Once a year I get to watch the little people
Pick the pieces up and tiptoe into the fire
And if it's time you've got
Or if it's cash you've got
Take my hand and throw it away

You'll never get me
I cannot be touched
I've launched a raft above your heads
You'll never get me
I cannot be touched
