But it's on the table, the fire's cookin'
And they're farmin' babies, while the slaves are all workin'

But I'm goin' hungry (Goin' hungry)

I'm goin' hungry (I'm goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (Goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (Goin' hungry)

I'm goin' hungry (Goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (Goin' hungry)

(Yeah, I don't mind stealin' bread) uh I don't mind
(No, I don't mind stealin' bread)
I'm goin' hungry (Goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (Goin' hungry)
