                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      
as you are

D
Can I be unhappy?
Em
Listen and agree
               A
no words can shame him or tame him

      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      
as you are

      D                F#m
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

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

D          Em
among the lambs and king of the beasts
A              D
it is so one-sided
D          Em                   A
Until the lamb is king of the beasts
                D
we live so one-sided
