Wake up this mornin' and the paper's on the mat
Poor gettin' poorer and the rich are gettin' fat again
Up in the towers, all the bosses sittin' sneezin'
A-half asleep and the rest all start to squeezin' tight
Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand

Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away!

Wake up this morning, there's a letter on the mat
Big brother want to know where little brother's at again
Life is a piece of paper, goes on forever
Sign on the dotted line or end up in the river drowned
Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand

Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away!

Wake up this morning, there's a letter on the mat
Big brother want to know where little brother's at again
Life is a piece of paper, goes on forever
Sign on the dotted line or end up in the river drowned, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down
Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand

Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Why don't ya throw it away
Throw it away
J-just throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away!
