Money Trumps Peace

Jon, I?d like to start Mr. President
The only thing I can tell you is that when I speak I?m very conscience about the audience that are listening to my words. The American people want to see some action
I fully understand if you read your newspaper article, which I do, sometimes uh and listen carefully, you?ll hear voices I?m in a little different position in that I?m trying to achieve certain objectives conflict in interests
I?m not going to talk about any of it I?m not going to talk about any of it Not gonna talk about it in other words, commercial interests are very powerful interests that?s o.k. that?s why you pay us all this money.

Money Trumps Peace these are big ideas this is my best idea
Money Trumps Peace let?s put it this way Money Trumps Peace I can talk all day long Money Trumps Peace these are big ideas Peace

You shouldn?t be surprised you said one thing and did another You?d like to think of another question?
Being the kind man that I am, I will recycle you. You like that, huh? Recycling?

Money Trumps Peace Money Trumps Peace Money Trumps Peace Money Trumps Peace
I can?t say it more plainly I am particularly interested in helping get (inaudible)
Money Trumps Peace you better be eloquent Money Trumps Peace we gotta keep em low
