They Don't Know What They Got
I got my radio on, I'm cruisin' down the highway Yeah I'm free as the wind today And I hear song after song whinin' and complainin' 'Bout life in the USA They don't know what they got Now I'm not one of those guys who says love it or leave it Makin' it better is my objective But take a look at the world and hey don't you believe That what we need is a little perspective They don't know what they got Let's take a little snapshot Focus, dictators oppressing people yearning to be free Women tremble 'neath their veils no hope or opportunity An entire continent is being destroyed by HIV It's live on your TV Children begging on the street or in a sweatshop factory Diseases, starvation and horrific poverty People kill themselves to get here Leave their home and family And you tell me you aint't got no DVD I say you tell me you ain't got no DVD It costs too much to drive your SUV It takes too long to log on your PC Now some folks have said I need political correction But you won't hear a guilty plea 'Cause while we ain't yet achieved societal perfection I can't ignore what I see That they don't know a good thing Some folks don't know a good thing when they got it You know it's easy to sing You know it's easy to sing and to knock it They don't know what they got Some folks'll take it for granted and abuse it The haves think they have not It never hits 'em until they lose it They don't know what they got People don't know what they got They don't know what they got
