Lyrics
All ?round your town you see them meet
They?re everywhere on every street
They?re planning ways, to get to you
To get your money, before they?re through

Everybody?s got a cause
A new one every day
There?s so many, I?m confused
I don?t know who to pay

They promise things you?ll never see
Don?t know ?bout you, but it bothers me
So I sit and wonder where the money goes
But they?d prefer it, if you don?t know

Everybody?s got a cause
A new one every day
There?s so many, I?m confused
I don?t know who to pay

Everywhere there are benefits
Raising money for a noble cause
So why it seems what?s going on,
Is skirtin' limits of the laws

They?re on the phone, they?re at the door
In every airport, askin? for more
Seems they?re collecting a pile of dough
But nothing changes, so where?s it go?

Everybody?s got a cause
A new one every day
There?s so many, I?m confused
I don?t know who to pay
