Words and Music by John Kay




What gives you the right hey you
To stand there and tell me what to do

Tell me who gave you the power


To stop me from livin' like I do
Remember if you plan to stay

Those who give can take away


Don't bite the hand that feeds you


Just one time I'd like to be somewhere where
None of your clever lies fill the air


I'm tired of your frozen smile and your voice of tin

Just might all gang up on you

Turn the knob and do you in



Remember if you plan to stay

Those who give can take away.

Don't bite the hand that feeds you



This never ending power play


Is grinding us like giant millstones
"Tween Jealous greed and vicious hate
But it can't be our only fate



It's time we got our heads together

And let'em know that we're awake


Those in the dark, you know they're no longer blind
They're breakin' from your strangle hold on their minds



Those that can see don't need no one to cross the street
Be careful who you're pushin' round


They just might find you obsolete


Remember if you plan to stay

Those who give can take away.


Don't bite the hand that feeds you
