Lyrics

Lawmakers Of The Day

Why did you stop me officer?
Was I exceeding the speed?
Or did I run a red light?
Or is just because you need to
Enforce another law that
You've been told we need
To keep the peace & structure
Of this society

Lawmakers of the day
They always get their way
The lawmakers of the day
They always get their way

When I hear the word corruption
I shuffle in my seat
Because it seems to me that money
Can buy you anything
So if you need a little favour
But can't afford to pay
You'd better keep your head down
If you can't afford to pay

The Lawmakers of the day
They always get their pay
The lawmakers of the day
They always get their pay

Well now I need a little favour
I can't afford to pay
I'm stuck inside the system
That says it's user pays
Well I need a little favour
I can't afford to pay
I need someone to help
'Cause I'm never getting away

From the lawmakers of the day
They always get their way
The lawmakers of the day
They always get their way
