The Battle Of The Green People

THE BATTLE OF THE GREEN PEOPLE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Resuscitate me
Breathe into me, life
Infant is me 
Money makes it right 

Hot, warm, coldly 
Power isn't for all 
Speak very boldly 
I can see what you once saw 

Who is fighting the battle? 
Who is winning the war? 
Who is walking down easy street?
Who's the fool that's wanting more? 

You're so contrary holding that bottle of champagne 
You got fooled so quickly 
So drunk you forgotten your own name 

It's so refreshing
One hundred times or more 
Your commercial is playing
Like a hundred times before

Who is fighting the battle? 
Who is winning the war? 
Who is walking down easy street?
Who's the fool that's wanting more?

From here to Puerto Rico to L.A. and San Antone 
From father blessed Mulcahy to Chicago's late Al Capone 

Nickel, dime a dozen 
Everyone is going to the bank 
Spinning heads a-turning 
Who the hell do we have to thank? 

Who is fighting the battle? 
Who is winning the war? 
Who is walking down easy street?
Who's the fool that's wanting more?
