You say what's mine is mine
And what's yours is mine too
Now you've got more than you can spend

But all of the money
In the whole wide world
Is not gonna help you in the end

Now while there's still time to be saved
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late, for you I'm afraid
So don't take that attitude to your grave
Don't you take it there

I hear helicopters
Over my house every day
Shining their lights and flying low

Treat a child like a criminal
From the day that he is born
And you're gonna reap just what you sow

Now while there's still time to be saved
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late, for you I'm afraid
And don't take that attitude into your grave
Don't you take it there

So you can move your court case
Way across town
You can move it across the whole wide globe

But it ain't gonna help your court case
Up in the sky
When you go to put on your whole white robe

Now while there's still time to be saved
Take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late, for you I'm afraid
Don't, they don't want it
Don't you take it there

You dare the children
To stay off of drugs
Dare you to stop letting them in

And how dare you point your finger
At a gang out on the street
While it's you who is committing the sin

Now while there's still time to be saved
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late, for you I'm afraid
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Don't you take it there

They don't want it there
You know your mother taught you better
Don't take that attitude to your grave
