2006.35 When you're tired of winning

To be sung to the tune of "The Eton Boat Song"

When You're Tired Of Winning

When you're tired of winning
Victories' all the same…
Always falsely grinning
As if you know their names.

We will rise above you
Penthouse and avenue
Watching you at distance
Our lives are not for you.

How our hold increases,
Strangling all the trade.
Flowing wealth ne'er ceases!
The billions that we've made!

We will rise above you
Penthouse and avenue
Watching you at distance
Our lives are not for you.

No way you can stop it
Nothing that you can do.
The rich all get richer,
The powerful and few.

We will rise above you
Penthouse and avenue
Watching you at distance
Our lives are not for you.

We eat those beneath us
We are the priv'leged few
Holding our positions
our fellowship stays true

We will rise above you
Penthouse and avenue
Watching you at distance
Our lives are not for you.

Knowing all the secrets
We will control your lives
We will own your children
We can seduce your wives

We will rise above you
Penthouse and avenue
Watching you at distance
Our lives are not for you.

In the end, we'll rule you
Your labor is for us.
Despite strife and sorrow
You are no more than dust.

We will rise above you
Penthouse and avenue
Watching you at distance
Our lives are not for you.
