You got that silver spoon, yes I've
Seen it dangling from your mouth, when
You give some sorry excuse
For the mess that you've made of your momma's house
Built up and born into waste
It's no surprise when your eyes confess, cause
We all get used to the taste
Of sugar-coated words and the sweet smell of success

You traded your soul for a smile and a wink
Oh yeah, easy as sin,
Well it is what it is, but it ain't what you think
No, no, the clever don't always win
So cling to your crown if you will
But you can't turn paper to gold
Anymore than a lie can deceive once the
Truth has been told

The twist and turn of a word
Can polish it up til it shines like new
We bop our heads to the beat
But more often than not it's the same old tune
Well god helps those who help themselves
So grab another piece of the pie
And don't you mind if there's some
Who never got none
They must've been unwilling to try

You traded your soul for a smile and a wink
Oh yeah, easy as sin,
Well it is what it is, but it ain't what you think
No, no, the clever don't always win
So cling to your crown if you will
But you can't turn paper to gold
Anymore than a lie can deceive once the
Truth has been told

Well tell yourself the stars aligned and brought you down to the earth
A celestial prophecy, how blessed are we by your noble birth
But we are just flesh and blood and sometimes love and hate
And it don't matter what you say...

You traded your soul for a smile and a wink
Oh yeah, easy as sin,
Well it is what it is, but it ain't what you think
No, no, the clever don't always win
So cling to your crown if you will
But you can't turn paper to gold
Anymore than a lie can deceive once the
Truth has been told
