CORPORATIONS DON'T OWN US ANYMORE
by Samantha Elin
©2011

Corporations don’t own us anymore
Corporations don’t own us anymore
They don’t own us anymore
The gates are open, hear us roar
Corporations don’t own us anymore

We’re not gonna sit around and wait for things to change
Not gonna sit around and wait for things to change
We’re not gonna wait around for change
We’re gonna rattle the banker’s cage
Not gonna sit around and wait for things to change

Cuz 99 percent can’t be wrong
Ninety-nine percent of us can’t be wrong
We can’t all be wrong
So don’t tell us to move along
Ninety-nine percent can’t be wrong

Gonna stay out here as long as we should
We’re gonna stay out here as long as we should
Gonna stay as long as we should
Until Wall Street makes good
We’re gonna stay out here as long as we should

Uniforms won’t scare us away
Uniforms won’t scare us away
They won’t scare us away
We’ll be back the next day
Uniforms won’t scare us away

Left, right, center, we’re here as one
Left, right, center, we’re all here as one
Left, right, center, we’re here as one
The oligarchy is over and done
Left, right, center, we’re all here as one

Cuz rich men’s money don’t ever trickle down
Rich men’s money don’t ever trickle down
The money don’t trickle down
In an economy build by clowns
Rich men’s money don’t ever trickle down

Corporations own most everything
Corporations, they own most everything
They own most everything
Newspapers, government and TV
Corporations own most everything

But corporations don’t own us anymore
Corporations don’t own us anymore
They don’t own us anymore
The gates are open, hear us roar
Corporations don’t own us anymore
No, corporations don’t own us anymore
