Someone Fixed The Game

[NOT DONE]

Going 140 on the 401
The cop lights flash me down outside Kingston
The officer said "Son, I'm just like you
Try to ease up and pass on through"

I'm shifting in the customs line
My suitcase is full of shitty dutch wine
She hears the bottles rattle and clink
Waves me through with a knowing wink

My shopping cart won't fit any more
Thoughtlessly, I walk right through the door
The clerk said you don't look like a thief
I'll let it slide if you pay me next week

Oh
{refrain}
Someone fixed the game for me
Someone fixed the game for me
I'm not on top but I can see
Somebody fixed it for me

I'm sick and scared of living downtown
With the disenfranchised volatile crowd
The bank man said he could sell us a loan
For a no-money-down suburban home 
(What could go wrong?)

Well the cop, the nurse, the fire brigade
When i break down, they all come to my aid
It don't matter just how deep I get stuck
Someone arrives to pick me right up

Someone fixed the game for me
Someone fixed the game for me
I've scrambled high enough to see
Somebody fixed it for me

When other blokes get tossed in the clink
I sneak by to frolic and drink
Some say it's because I'm clever 
.... or nice
But that's just code for privileged and white

So if you're of the less fortunate end
Man up and oppress somebody else
Think, any generation will do
Someone will fix the game for you

Like
Someone fixed the game for me
A pair of nines and I'm hit with a three
I'm no card shark but the dealer knows me
Somebody fixed it, I see

[slow]
But a storm has come, there's a flood rushing in
It's up to my neck and it's through to my skin
Keep your head down, everything's fine
Don't worry about yours, I got what's mine

They say the auctioneer, he's manning a raft
He's calling out the oars and the mast
If I can bid the other guy down
I will sail home, the rest can drown

Someone fixed the game for me
Someone fixed the game for me
That sun's sure hot, but I'm sailing free
Somebody fixed this for me

Someone fixed the game for me
Someone fixed the game for me
Not a drop to drink, no land to see
Can somebody fix this for me
Can somebody fix this for me

Can somebody fix this for me
Ooooh ooooooooh
