"Eat That Rat" as written by Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone and Johnny Ramone....

You don't want to share with anyone else
You got all the money, you got all the wealth
You got all the buildings and the factories
You got all the power and the ceremonies

You wanna play a game of cat and mouse
With the President in the White House
This is a hungry world, there are months to feed
There are millionaires with more than they need

Eat that rat Eat that rat
Eat that rat Eat that rat


Don't believe what you've been told
You can't change a turd into gold
Somehow we get all these creeps in control
It makes me throw up in the toilet bowl

You thieving whore, you hustle for bucks
You take the money and you shoot it up
That's the breaks, it's the chance you take
Get it together for your children's sake

Eat that rat Eat that rat
Eat that rat Eat that rat

    General Commentpretty straight forward but since theres no comments ill explain for anyone who wants to hear it.

    The first verse is about greedy rich people who indulge theirselves instead of helping to solve the worlds problems. they keep it all to themselves.

    The second verse seems to be talking about someone who has nothing becuase of a gambling addiction. "you can't change a turd into gold" is kind of a strange line but it means you cant just go make some bets and win money to solve all your problems. it doesnt work like that.
