  •  I've always loved that song. (7+ / 0-)

    Especially nice cover of it by Greg Brown.

    I Don't Want Your Millions, Mister

    I don't want your millions, Mister,
    I don't want your diamond ring.
    All I want is the right to live, Mister,
    Give me back my job again.

    Now, I don't want your Rolls-Royce, Mister,
    I don't want your pleasure yacht.
    All I want's just food for my babies,
    Give to me my old job back.

    We worked to build this country, Mister,
    While you enjoyed a life of ease.
    You've stolen all that we built, Mister,
    Now our children starve and freeze.

    So, I don't want your millions, Mister,
    I don't want your diamond ring.
    All I want is the right to live, Mister,
    Give me back my job again.

    Think me dumb if you wish, Mister,
    Call me green, or blue, or red.
    This one thing I sure know, Mister,
    My hungry babies must be fed.

    Take the two old parties, Mister,
    No difference in them I can see.
    But with a Farmer-Labor Party
    We could set the people free
    .

    So, I don't want your millions, Mister,
    I don't want your diamond ring.
    All I want is the right to live, Mister,
    Give me back my job again.
