There's nothing wrong with Capitalism 
There's nothing wrong with free enterprise 
Don't try to make me feel guilty 
I'm so tired of hearing you cry 

There's nothing wrong with making some profit 
If you ask me I'll say it's just fine 
There's nothing wrong with wanting to live nice 
I'm so tired of hearing you whine 
About the revolution 
Bringin' down the rich 
When was the last time you dug a ditch, baby! 

If it ain't one thing 
Then it's the other 
Any cause that crosses your path 
Your heart bleeds for anyone's brother 
I've got to tell you you're a pain in the ass 

You criticize with plenty of vigor 
You rationalize everything that you do 
With catchy phrases and heavy quotations 
And everybody is crazy but you 

You're just a middle class, socialist brat 
From a suburban family and you never really had to work 
And you tell me that we've got to get back 
To the struggling masses (whoever they are) 
You talk, talk, talk about suffering and pain 
Your mouth is bigger than your entire brain 
What the hell do you know about suffering and pain . . . 

(Repeat first verse) 

(Repeat chorus) 

There's nothing wrong with Capitalism 
There's nothing wrong with Capitalism 
There's nothing wrong with Capitalism 
There's nothing wrong with Capitalism
