Lou Reed


Strawman Lyrics

We who have so much
to you who have so little
to you won don't have anything at all
We who have so much
more than any one man does need
and you who don't have anything at all
Does anybody need another million dollar movie
Does anybody need another million dollar star
Does anybody need to be told over and over
Spitting in the wind comes back at you twice as hard
Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to hell
Does anyone really need a billion dollar rocket
Does anyone need a $60,000 car
Does anyone need another President
or the sins of Swaggart parts 6, 7, 8 and 9
Does anyone need another politician
caught with his pants down
money sticking in his hole
Does anyone need another racist preacher
Spittin' in the wind can only do you harm
Does anyone need another faulty shuttle
blasting off to the Moon, Venus or Mars
Does anyone need another self-righteous rock and roll singer
whose nose he says has led him straight to God
Does anyone need yet another blank skyscraper
If you're like me I'm sure a minor miracle would do
A flaming sword or maybe a gold ark floating up the Hudson
When you spit in the wind it comes right back at you
