I'm not hungry, (?) throw away the key (?)
It's outrageous, nobody cares,

White collar crime, you had the time,
Blue collar crime, you'll do time every time,

Stealing from the company, taking all the profits,
Sharing with your family, drinking all the benefits,
(?), Shocking, it's all so mocking,

White collar crime, you don't have the time,
Blue collar crime, you'll do time every time,

You can get away with it, will they get away with it?
Do they get away with it? Yes, they get away with it.

Burn money today, free money tomorrow,
(?) goes my mind, causes so much sorrow,
(?), It's all the same, It's a money power game

White collar crime, you do the time,
Blue collar crime, you do time every time
White collar crime, you don't have the time,
Blue collar crime, you do time every time

All the same, money power game,
It's all the same, money power game,
It's all the same, It's a money power game,
All the same, it's a money, a money, power, the power game,
It's all the same.
