The Lion's Share Lyrics - 10,000 Maniacs

Can I be unhappy? Look at what I see 

A beast in furs and crowned in luxury 

 

He's a wealthy man in the poorest land, a self-appointed king 

And there's no complaining while he's reigning 

 

The lambs are bare of fleece and cold 

The lion has stolen that, I'm told 

There must be some creature mighty as you are 

 

The lambs go hungry, not fair 

The biggest portion is the lion's share 

There must be some creature mighty as you are 

 

Can I be unhappy? Listen and agree 

No words can shame him or tame him 

 

The lambs are bare of fleece and cold 

The lion has stolen that, I'm told 

There must be some creature mighty as you are 

 

The lambs go hungry, not fair 

The biggest portion is the lion's share 

There must be some creature mighty as you are, as you are 

 

Razor claws in velvet paws, you dance in your guarded home 

'Til a stronger beast will call on you and pounce upon your throne 

 

Do we pay? Dearly, for the lion takes so greedily 

And he knows that what he's taken, it is ours 

That's how the wealth's divided 

 

Among the lambs and king of the beasts 

It is so one-sided 

Until the lamb is king of the beasts 

We live so one-sided
