We Will Still Be Great

I thought you said to take as long as I needed.
Why do I have to pay you back 'now'?

'Because the people I owe,
Are getting less patient.'

What has that got to do with me?

'That money I loaned you,
Was given to me by them.'

Are these those same people you call names?
Those same 'third world' people you claim are ignorant.
Are they the same people who have supplied every need we have?

'So big deal!
You got the money or not? '

I thought this was 'your' money you were loaning me?

'Indirectly it is!
But what difference should that make to you?
As long as your needs are being met...
Who cares how that is done and who is used to do it!
We will still be great!
Say it!
That's all it takes.'
