Everyday I see my people walking through and dying day by day
Everyday I see my people asking for what has been taken away
While our politicians chop the peoples money with no regard

Its daylight robbery
Its daylight robbery

Everyday I see my children asking for education
Everyday I see my people asking for healthcare
Everyday I see our mothers asking for a helping hand

Its daylight robbery
Its daylight robbery

Piano instrumental

Its daylight robbery
Its daylight robbery

Rap Section
My girl wants a handbag, that match her glad rags,
She works all week - just to give cash back,
And me - I'm in the same damn trap,
Splash a little scratch on Jumpman and Ralph hats,
No matter - if you make a living or a killing,
There's nothing in your fridge or you're sitting on some millions,
We're seen as microchips in the system,
Anyone can get it - It's the season of the victim,
Why just last week, an old man stopped me
Asking 'Can you spot me a dollar for a coffee?'
Then he changed his mind said he's gonna play the lottery
All in all, I respect the honesty,
Lord knows, we could do with a bit of luck
When they take a slice of the little that they've given us,
In these times the price of living is ridiculous,
It's a robbery, everyone - 'stick em up'

Its daylight robbery
Its daylight robbery
Its daylight robbery
Its daylight robbery
