Lyrics
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs
Strike up the band
Break out the bar
Let'em know we're back in business this time
Don't be a fool
Can't you see I was kicked when I was down
Got nerves of steel
My memory's long and I've learned to be
The hunter not the hunted
I want the best that money can buy
Gotta have the sweet smell of success
So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

I'm sick and tired of playing second best
But now I don't look back anymore
I've served my time
I've paid my debt
And tonight I'm gonna ride out in the sunset
I've been around I know where it hurts
You see action speaks louder than words
Just start me up give me the power
And I feel just like a jet on the runway

So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

You can spend all your life beeing somebody's fool
Or sell your soul and go break every rule
You know there's no money in honesty
But I tell you son, you've gotta be what you'll be

Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

Hey mr Big watch your cigar I'm gonna stick
My nose in your business
I've seen the light that shines in the dark
I've seen my destiny written in the stars
So stand your ground it's face to face
And prepare yourself for a showdown
The game is up the pack's at your heels
And there's nothing left for the loser

So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share
