10000 Maniacs - The Lion's Share Songtext

He's a wealthy man in the poorest land, a self-appointed king, and
No complaining while he's reigning. The lambs are bare of fleece and
The lion has stolen that, I'm told. There must be some creature mighty
You are. The lambs go hungry (not fair)
, the biggest portion is the
Share. There must be some creature mighty as you are.
Can I be unhappy? Listen and agree, no words can shame him or tame

King of the beasts, it is so one-sided. Until the lamb is king of the
We live so one-siedd.
