Hymn for the shareholders

Better in D

VERSE 1
         E
Dear shareholder
              Asus
Living somewhere out there
                           E
We hope you're a happy God
                        B
And that you care

Have you heard about
How we scrimp and we sacrifice
All the many corners
Cut for your 'end?

VERSE 2
Dear shareholder
We know we are the lucky ones
Unlike those colleagues
Whose jobs went abroad

We hope you spare a thought
For the people working over there
In harsher conditions
For a much lower wage

CHORUS 1
             Asus
Do you even care?
            E
Do you hear our prayers?
              Asus
Are you a man like me?
      B
Or just, another company?

VERSE 3
This hymn for the shareholders
We sing to be thankful for
Your investment in us
When we needed more

We pray for your confidence
In these hard times
And that this quarter
You will think fine

CHORUS 2
Do you even care?
Do you hear our prayers?
Do you have hopes and dreams?
Or are you just, another pension scheme?

MIDDLE
F#m                               B
It's not how it's meant to be
We were supposed to own the corporations
Now they're running society
Is it too late to undo
The soulless corporations
For the sake of me and you

VERSE 4
Dear shareholder
We hear you're not satisfied
The management tells us all
That we haven't tried

Why don't you talk to us
Can you give us a sign
Is all that you want from us
Just to send money?

CHORUS 1
