Powerman Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I know a man
He's a powerful man
Got the people in his power
In the palm of his hand

He started at the bottom
And he worked his way up
Now he's never going to stop
Until he reaches the top

It's the same old story
It's the same old dream
It's power man, power man
And all that it can bring

If you want your money
Better stand in the line
'Cause you'll only end up
Picking up nickels and dimes

You call him names
And he sits and grins
'Cause everybody else
Is just a sucker to him

And he's got my money
But I've got my faith
Powerman, powerman
I'll never be your slave

It's the same old story
It's the same old game
It's power man, power man
Driving me insane

People tried to conquer the world
Napoleon and Genghis Khan
Hitler tried and Mussolini too

Powerman don't need to fight
Powerman don't need no guns
Powerman got money on his side

Well, I'm not rich and I'm not free
But I've got my girl and she got me
He's got my money and my publishing rights
But I've got my girl and I'm alright

And she got me going
And she keeps me 'sane
But powerman, powerman
Got money on the brain

It's the same old story
It's the same old game
Powerman, powerman
Driving me insane
