We who have so much to you who have so little 
to you who don't have anything at all
We who have so much more than any one man does need
and you who don't have anything at all, ah
Does anybody need another million dollar movie
does anybody need another million dollar star
Does anybody need to be told over and over
 spitting in the wind comes back at you twice as hard

Strawman, going straight to the devil 
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil 

 Strawman  Strawman  Strawman 
Strawman, yes

Does anyone really need a billion dollar rocket 
does anyone need a 60,000 dollars car
Does anyone need another president
or the sins of Swaggart parts 6, 7, 8 and 9, ah
Does anyone need yet another politician
 caught with his pants down and money sticking in his hole
Does anyone need another racist preacher 
spittin' in the wind can only do you harm, ooohhh 

Strawman, going straight to the devil 
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil 

 Strawman  Strawman  Strawman  Strawman 

Does anyone need another faulty shuttle  blasting off to the moon, Venus or Mars
Does anybody need another self-righteous rock singer  whose nose he says has led him straight to God
Does anyone need yet another blank skyscraper 
if you're like me I'm sure a minor miracle will do
A flaming sword or maybe a gold ark floating up the Hudson 
when you spit in the wind it comes right back at you

Strawman, going straight to the devil 
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going to the devil 

Strawman, strawman 
Strawman, ...., ah
 Strawman  Strawman
