The Kinks - Powerman Lyrics
I know a man, hes a powerful man
Hes got the people in his power
In the palm of his hand.
He started at the bottom and he worked his way up
Now hes never going to stop
Until he reaches the top.
Its the same old story, its the same old dream,
Its power man, power man, and all that it can bring.
If you want your money, you better stand in the line
cos youll only end up picking up nickels and dimes.
You call him names and he sits and grins
cos everybody else is just a sucker to him.
And hes got my money, but Ive got my faith
And powerman, powerman, Ill never be your slave.
Its the same old story, its the same old game
Its power man, power man, driving me insane
People tried to conquer the world napoleon and genghis khan
Hitler tried and mussolini too
Powerman dont need to fight, powerman dont need no guns
Powerman got money on his side
Well Im not rich and Im not free
But Ive got my girl and she got me
Hes got my money and my publishing rights
But Ive got my girl and Im alright
And she got me going, and she keeps me sane
But powerman, powerman, got money on the brain
Its the same old story its the same old game
Powerman, powerman driving me insane
