    Lyrics

    Excuse me Mr.
    Do you have the time
    Or are you so important
    That it stands still for you

    Excuse me Mr. won't you
    Lend me your ear
    Or are you not only blind
    But do you not hear

    Excuse me Mr., but
    Isn't that your oil in the sea
    And the pollution in the air Mr.
    Whose could that be

    So excuse me Mr.
    But I'm a mister too
    And you're givin' Mr. a bad name
    Mr. like you

    So I'm taking the Mr.
    From out in front of your name
    'Cause it's a Mr. like you
    That puts the rest of us to shame
    It's a Mr. like you
    That puts the rest of us to shame

    And I've, I have seen enough, I've seen enough to know
    That I've seen too much

    Excuse me Mr.
    Can't you see the children dying
    You say that you can't help them
    Mr. you're not even trying

    Excuse me Mr.
    Just take a look around
    Oh Mr. just look up
    And you will, you will see it comin' down

    Excuse me Mr.
    But I'm a, I'm a mister too
    And you're givin' Mr. a bad name
    Mr. like you

    So I'm taking the Mr.
    From out in front of your name
    'Cause it's a Mr. like you
    That puts the rest of us to shame
    It's a Mr. like you
    That puts the rest of us to shame

    And I've seen enough, I have seen and I have seen
    I have seen enough to know
    That I've seen too much
    I've seen enough, I have seen enough, to know that I have seen too much

    See 'cause Mr. when you're rattling
    On heaven's gate
    Let me tell you Mr.
    By then it is too late

    'Cause Mr. when you get there
    They don't ask, they don't ask what you saved
    All they'll want to know, Mr.
    Is what you gave

    So excuse me Mr.
    But I'm a mister too
    And you're givin' Mr. a bad name
    Mr. like you

    So I'm taking the Mr.
    From out in front of your name
    'Cause it's a Mr. like you
    That puts the rest of us to shame
    It's a Mr. like you
    That puts the rest of us to shame
