The Lyrics

(Instrumental introduction)

Tobacco's cancer-forming
Says the surgeon general's warning
So is air pollution in the city
But the powers up above
Know it's money that they love
When profits are down, they take pity

And if your brain's still on
You will be set upon
By shills for the corporate way
Yes, we really are annoyed
When we see the unemployed
All laid off to boost C.E.O. pay

We hate welfare for big business (every day)
Welfare for big business (every way)
We hate welfare for big business (from the Right)
Welfare for big business
They're greedy all the time (watch out!)

Big Business keeps wishin'
They had no competition
Or watchdogs in the bureaucracy
They get help from Bob Barr,
Tom DeLay and Kenneth Starr
All enemies of democracy

When their lobbyists are done
They give PAC money to run
The G.O.P. will see it their way
They're really paranoid
Real issues they avoid
But corporate welfare will be here to stay

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental break

Repeat first two verses and Chorus

Instrumental break

Welfare for big business...
Welfare for big business...
Welfare for big business...
Welfare for big business...

(Spoken during instrumental break:)
They take care...
Of big business...
Right away...
Every day...
