lyrics

Trojan Horse
© Altman, Carlson, Donnelly, Eady, Kerr, Lawson, Todd, Vallee, SOCAN/ASCAP

Can I make a deal with you
One that carries a lick of clout
To make the quiet ones stay quiet
And let the good ones come out

If I’m ever unfair with you
Pull the file and rip it up
Courage to set a precedent
And seal it with a coffee cup

If I ever get mean with you
Like my account is in arrears
I will halt this production line
And machine-tool your fears

Can I make a deal with you
A meal out of you
Can I make a deal with you
And pull the rug out from under you

And I know you’re lonesome (yeah)
Let’s have that talk we’ve been meaning to have
About rewards bestowed on me
Well gee I’m sorry if you feel left out

But there was never any concept at work
I think the rules were left unchecked
But I will doctor up the records
So you can keep your pound of flesh

Chorus

Chorus 2:
You know I still see you
In that same unflattering light
I’ll arrange for your safe passage
Just keep your head down, sit tight
All right

Instrumental break, Chorus, Chorus 2
