OCCUPY 0112

It’s a highland I call my land
It’s an island in the sun
No matter how you measure it
It’s always number one

If I had a house to occupy
I’d occupy my wish
But to have a house to occupy
I must defy the rich

We buy the things we need to live
We steal the things we must
We work our bodies to the bone
And then return to dust

I had a house to occupy
’twas stolen by the bank
So, I must dare to take it back
So tell me what you think

If we think we’re wrong when we be right
Then we be wrong in deed
Be earning what we can
And then be stealing what we need

She told me, Jimmy, I love you, Jimmy
And I will be your wife
And now I’m looking forward
To be lonely all of my life

The banks will steal your property
A girl will steal your soul
Take your sparkling diamonds
And turn them back to coal

If I had a house to occupy
I’d occupy my wish
But to have a house to occupy
I must defy the rich

The rich, they steal our life from us
So we must steal it back
Lest we spend our life
Regretting all the things we lack

Sounds like an Irish folky song. The "Diamonds back to coal" is a great line! Love it, very jaunty!
