  • Well id you hear? There's a natural order
    Those most deserving will end up with the most
    That the cream cannot help but always rise up to the top
    Well I say, "Shit floats"

    If you thought things had changed
    Friend, you'd better think again
    Bluntly put, in the fewest of words
    Cunts are still running the world
    Cunts are still running the world
    Oh yeah

    Now the working classes are obsolete
    They are surplus to society's needs
    So let 'em all kill each other
    And get it made overseas
    That's the word, don't you know
    From the guys that's running the show
    Let's be perfectly clear boys and girls
    Oh cunts are still running the world
    Cunts are still running the world
    Oh yeah

    Oh yeah

    Feed your children on crayfish and lobster tails
    Find a school near the top of the league
    In theory I respect your right to exist
    I will kill you if you move in next to me
    And it stinks, yeah it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust
    But the takings are up by a third, so
    Cunts are still running the world, yeah
    Cunts are still running the world
    Oh yeah

    Cunts are still running the world
    Cunts are still running the world

    The free market is perfectly natural
    Do you think that I'm some kind of dummy?
    It's the ideal way to order the world
    "Fuck the morals, does it make any money?"
    If you don't like it, then leave
    Or use your right to protest on the street
    Yeah use your right, but don't imagine that it's heard
    Not while cunts are still running the world
    Cunts are still running the world, yeah
    Cunts are still running the world, yeah
    Cunts are still running the world, oh
    Cunts are still running the world
    Cunts are still running the world
    Cunts are still running the world Writer/s: Jarvis Branson Cocker
