Lyrics

Just wanna see the big picture
Just wanna have my cake and eat it
Don’t think about the past or the future
Want all my business to beat it

And I won’t take it lying down
One week in and one week out
Make sure the word gets around
Just what my story’s all about

I take the world between my teeth
Put my money where my mouth is!
And I walk out into the street
Brush aside every beggar that I meet

Hey sir, you can have it all!
Hey sir, you can have it all!

Yeah I walk out into the street
Every beggar that I meet says
“Hey, you got a dollar for a drink?”
But who cares? Who cares what I think?

Credit made me what I am today
Someone will win, somebody will pay
Does it matter if you love anybody?
‘Cos love will never blow your debts away

Hey sir, you can have it all!
Hey sir, you can have it all!

Hey sir, you can have it all!
Hey sir, you can have it all!
