    Lyrics

    Yes, I've seen you go to work in your big car
    Yes, you're fat and can afford to be tasteless
    You're a big shot
    You want the whole lot
    And if I like it or not
    You still control me
    You tell me what to think and what to be

    I like it best in the freezing winter, boy
    I like to sneer as I sail past your bus stop
    I watch you struggle, and it gets me red hot
    I wander 'round in my empty office block
    Big shot
    I want the whole lot
    And if you like it or not
    I still control you
    I tell you what to think and what to do

    So, you listen to smoking industry
    You listen to the guys in the factories
    You listen to the wealth and the misery
    You listen to the power of money
    For a big shot
    Who wants a whole lot
    And if you like it or not
    He'll probably get it
    He'll tell you when to beg and when to sit

    You look like a government minister
    Or a high ranking military officer
    I don't think you care
    You're just a big shot, yeah

    Yes, I've seen you go to work in your big car
    Yes, you're fat and can afford to be tasteless
    You're a big shot
    Who wants a whole lot
    And if I like it or not
    You still control me
    You tell me what to think and what to be
