Act of God

  • Dirty fat banker sold a house today
    Sold at auction wants the family out the way
    Kick them on the street, cause he couldn't pay the tax
    Call it an act of God
    I get a million dollars people hear me sang
    Got to give the banker half of everything
    Didn't the founding fathers holler about the same thing
    (Yes They did)
    Call it an act of God

    But I got news for you
    Freedom ain't free
    They lock you in a cell if you try to be
    But the ones who say "no", make history
    Call it an act of God
    (Act Of God)

    Tax dollars build a plane drop a bomb
    Supposedly to keep us all safe from Saddam
    Bringing bad news to another woman
    Call it an Act of God

    But I got news for you
    Freedom ain't free
    They lock you in a cell if you try to be
    But the ones who say "no", make history
    Call it an act of God
    (Act Of God)

    Funny how nobody's holy books are the same
    Everybody's God got a different name
    The day that it's over is the end of the game
    And they call it an act of God

    Hey, it will be all over when the people are free
    Free to be who and what they want to be
    Wherever we go it's up to you and me
    Call it an act of God
    We so tired said we through with fear
    There never was no hell or boogie man here
    If he was seen, look; he was in your mirror
    Call it an act of God

    Call it what you want except an act of God
    Call it what you want except an act of God
    Call it what you want except an act of God
    Call it an act of God
    Oh Lord
    Call it what you you want except an act of God
    Call it what you you want except an act of God
    Call it what you you want except an act of God
    Call it what you you want except an act of God
    Call it what you you want except an act of God Writer/s: Prince Rogers Nelson
