Quando o governo não tem juízo
e nunca faz o que é preciso
o povo é que paga!
Deixa-o pagar, deixa-o pagar, deixa-o pagar
se tu estás a gastar…

Se a Expo vai para o abismo
e não se fala em socialismo
o povo é que paga!
Deixa-o pagar, deixa-o pagar, deixa-o pagar
se tu estás a gastar…

Quando os impostos não vão baixar,
e afinal vão aumentar,
o povo é que sofre!
Deixa-o sofrer, deixa-o sofrer, deixa-o sofrer
e tu ficas a ver…
