Throw It Away Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Wake up this mornin' and the paper's on the mat
Poor getting poorer and the rich are getting fat again
Up in the towers all the bosses sittin' sneezing
A half asleep and the rest all start to squeezing tight

Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand, throw it away
Throw it away, throw it away
Throw it away, throw it away

Wake up this mornin' there's a letter on the mat
Big brother wanna know where little brother's at again
Life is a peace of paper, goes on forever
Sign on the dotted line or end up in the river drowned

Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand, throw it away
Throw it away, throw it away
Throw it away, throw it away

Wake up this mornin' there's a letter on the mat
Big brother wanna know where little brother's at again
Life is a peace of paper, goes on forever
Sign on the dotted line or end up in the river drowned
Drowned, drowned, drowned
Drowned, drowned, drowned
Drowned, drowned, drowned

Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand, throw it away
Throw it away, throw it away
Throw it away, I told you throw it away
Throw it away, just throw it away
Throw it away, throw it away
