IT'S THE SAME THE WHOLE WORLD OVER 4
(Si Kahn)

They pinch you in the Xerox room, they bump you in the hall
And if you say a word to them they say it's all your fault.
They call you in their office and they stare straight at your breasts
And if you take their hand away, they say it's how you're dressed.

CHORUS:
But it's the same the whole world over; happens all the time.
The woman who's the victim gets convicted of the crime.
Yes, it's the same the whole world over; always been the same,
The guilty claim they're innocent and the victim gets the blame.

Now the boss will say, "you asked for it," and, "Don't you have the nerve."
Or else he'll get you fired and say you got what you deserved.
If you speak out he'll say you're only tryin' to smear his name.
If not he'll tell his friends that they can go and try the same.

CHORUS

Now if sick folks caused diseases, everybody would have their health.
And if poor folks caused poverty, we all would share the wealth
If soldiers caused invasions, the generals would fight alone,
And if women caused harassment they'd be safe at work and home.

CHORUS
The guilty claim they're innocent and the victim gets the blame.
