                             They call me U.S. Steal
                             Twenty-first century fox sound bite
                             Who gives a damn what’s true or false
                             Long as it leans to the right?
                             Add a token liberal, pretend I’m fair
                             A bimbo for some sex appeal
                             I'm busy oilin’ up the corporation wheel
                             And they call me U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal

                             They call me U.S Steal
                             Carnegie sins, fifth generation
                             Incite illegal war, ignore the poor
                             Forget health and education
                             Promise not to leave any child behind
                             Fresh air, green tree or baby seal
                             Gonna drill Alaska a new raw deal
                             And they call me U.S. Steal

                                    They call me U.S. Steal
                                    Rockefeller/Ford assembly line
                                    Gonna’ bust the workin’ people’s unions up
                                    Put 'em back on eighteen-hour time
                                    Privatize hard-earned retirement funds
                                    Guess what happens when the markets reel
                                    Multi-trillion dollar debt I’ll soon reveal
                                    They call me U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal

                             Well, they call me U.S. Steal
                             Bush hackin' wackin' war machine
                             My sham patriotic war drum beat
                             Keeps profiteer's pockets full of green
                             Drink pollution’s cup ‘till the well runs dry
                             Bankrupt Uncle Sam with my tax repeal
                             I just may be human history’s biggest heel
                             Yeah, they call me U.S. Steal

                                    They call me U.S. Steal
                                    That’s S - T - E - A - L
                                    I steal from children, widows and the poor
                                    I steal from the middle class as well
                                    Human and Civil Rights will disappear
                                    World War III will soon be very real
                                    Hey, I’m carryin’ the presidential seal
                                    They call me U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal
                                    U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal *
