Now repeat everything, but with these lyrics.

Some folks were born silver spoon in hand.
Lord, don't they help themselves, no.
But when the taxman come to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yeah.

It ain't me! It ain't me!
I ain't no millionare's son, no.
It ain't me! It ain't me!
I ain't no fortunate one, no.

Now the verse and chorus again with these lyrics.

Yeah!
Some folks inherit star-spangled eyes.
Oooh, they send you down to war, yo.
And when you ask them how much should we give
Oooh, they only answer more, more, more, yo.

It ain't me!  It ain't me!
I ain't no military son!
It ain't me!  It ain't me!
I ain't no fortunate one!

Now repeat the chorus with these lyrics and fade out.

It ain't me!  It ain't me!
I ain't no fortunate one, no, no, no!
It ain't me!  It ain't me!
I ain't no fortunate son, no!
