Lyrics:

Give the Man a Fish


Sometimes I sit and wonder why it is
We've been overrun by big businesses
In the land of the free, I'm starting to see
I'm giving five days to them and getting two for me
And I'm starting to wonder who made those rules
Whoever it is must think we're fools
And they've been right so far, but not for long
Now we're sitting here drinking beer writing a song
While the rich get rich and the poor stay poor
And that's wrong

Just give the man a fish
Help a brother out, at least for a little while
Just give the man an inch
And we promise we won't take any more of your mile

Because if I had one over sixty-three thousand three hundred sixty
As much as you
I could live my life
Any way I wanted to

So what would you think about cutting some slack
To the hard working man who's breaking his back
Sweating every day just to feed his kids
Thinking to himself, that's just how it is
When deep down he must know it ain't true

Just give the man a fish
Help a brother out, at least for a little while
Just give the man an inch
And we promise we won't take any more of your mile

I know it's hard
It's so hard to see
That our greed
Is a disease
And we've lost
All control
When we have so much
And still need more
It's just one fish
It's just one inch

Just give the man a fish
Help a brother out, at least for a little while
Just give the man an inch
And we promise we won't take any more of your mile
