Seven richest countries in the world
Them have a little meeting
Them a plan to keep and oppress the poor
So them have a little meeting
But when them think then thing goes another way
Yes when them think then thing goes another way

Did you hear about these meetings
No you won't find poor countries there
Because of capitalist greed
Revolution seem to be the only way
It may be an old fashion way of thinking
But I believe in the people and these aims

'Cause when them think then things go the people way
One day dem deh deh dem no deh deh
When them think then things go the the people way
One day dem deh deh dem no deh deh

These countries want to stay on top
So they'll find any way
To them third world people life is but a small price to be paid
They think they're great feeling no one can touch them
Well them have a next thing comin'

'Cause when them think then things go the people way
One day dem deh deh dem no deh deh
Oh when them think then thing goes another way
One day dem deh deh dem no deh deh

Seven richest things in the world
What do they do for the people
Look at America the so-called best
How many homeless
Where the money went
In the sky on weapons of death
WHy don't they write the needy some more checks

'Cause when them think then thing goes another way
One day dem deh deh dem no deh deh
When them think then things go the the people way
One day dem deh deh dem no deh deh
