To those on the needle
to the people on the pipe,
for those folks who need a beer for breakfast
to get them feeling right,
to the cops who lock them up at night
to keep them from the sight
of the pious who go to church every Sunday
to pray away their plight,

to all those successful people
earning a decent wage

lucky to pay their bills on time
and the flunkies on the dole,
to those who can count their blessings
and to those stuck in the hole,
to the shovels and picks that got them there
to those who cheer them on
yelling for them to keep, keep digging
keep up the fight

to all those successful people
living a life free of rage,

this song's for you all you people
thank you, thank you.
