YOU WANT WHAT I HAVE

You want the Olympic Gold
But you don’t train for the gold
You want to stand on the podium
With a year’s training
For a year’s event
You want the fame of the game
But not the pain for the gain

II
You want the life that I live
But you don’t work the work that I put in
You don’t want to scrub, clean, organise as I do
You want my man but you know you can’t maintain him
I pay the bills
Will you pay the bills too?
You want the fame of the game
But not the pain for the gain

III
You want the greener pastures over there
Do you have the knowledge to plant the green
Water the green
Trim the green
You love the rules over there
Start by obeying the rules in your neck of the words
You love what you don’t have
Only because you don’t have
You want the fame of the game
But not the pain for the gain
