                THE LION'S SHARE

(music: Natalie Merchant, Dennis Drew, words: Natalie Merchant)
D                 
Can I be unhappy? 
Em
Look at what I see:
a beast in furs 
      A              D
and crowned in luxury.

D
He's a wealthy man 
in the poorest land,
        Em 
a self-appointed king, 
and there's no complaining 
A
while he's reigning. 
  
      D                 
The lambs are bare of
F#m 
fleece and cold;
      G               D
the lion has stolen that, I'm told. 
                              F#m
There must be some creature mighty
         Em      D                F#m 
as you are. The lambs go hungry (not fair),
       G                      D 
the biggest portion is the lion's share. 
                               F#m         Em
There must be some creature mighty as you are.

(same as 1st verse)
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.
  
Bm               Em
Razor claws in velvet paws, 
      a                    D
you dunce in your guarded home,
F#m      Bm                 Em         
'til a stronger beast will call on you
     G                  A 
and pounce upon your throne.

D           F#m  
Do we pay? Dearly,
          G              D 
for the lion takes so greedily
                             F#m           Em 
and he knows that what he's taken, it is ours.
 A                           D
That's how the wealth's divided
           Em                           
among the lambs and king of the beasts,
A              D 
it is so one-sided.
           Em                   A 
Until the lamb is king of the beasts
                D 
we live so one-sided.
