Big Country - What Are You Working For Lyrics




There was a crooked man
And he wore a crooked smile
He built a crooked highway
And it ran for miles and miles

With money from the revenue
Sponsorship from Ford
It barely holds together
With the goodwill of the Lord

In the penthouse of the baron
The little children sleep
Daddy talks to smugglers
While the armed gorillas creep

Poison for the great unwashed
Business for the mob
Another teenage murder
It’s just trouble on the job

Now I see what I must see
The poor do time the rich go free
You keep the faith and they keep score
Is this what you were working for

A newsleak in the city
Another scandal breaks
Sex and drugs in city hall
Someone’s on the make

Legal bounty hunters
Aim their lawsuits well
The victim talks to Playboy
Says I guess I’ll go to hell

Now I see what I must see
The poor do time the rich go free
You keep the faith and they keep score
Is this what you were working for

Now I see what I must see
The poor do time the rich go free
You keep the faith and they keep score
Is this what you were working for

Now I see what I must see
The poor do time the rich go free
You keep the faith and they keep score
Is this what you were working for
