 Your name is big brother,
C    F/G             C     Bb  Am G      Am
 You say that you're watch-ing me on the tele;

Seeing me go no-where.

 Children dying every-day.

 You say that you got me all in your notebook;

 Writing it down every-day.

 I'll change, if you vote me in as the Pres;
    F                 C    F/G  C  F/G
The President of your soul.

G              F
 I live in the Ghetto;

 You just come to  visit me 'round election time.

 We live in a house the size of a matchbox,

 Roaches live with us wall to wall.

 I don't even have to do nothin' to you;

You'll cause your own country to fall.
