The Greedies
Words by Karen Rupprecht
Music by Pam Minor

This song is available on Karen Rupprecht and Pam Minor's
Songs that Build Character & Values

My dictionary says that the meaning of greed…
Is wanting, and taking, much more than you need.
If you take huge helpings, the food is delicious,
Then people after you get empty dishes.

You’ve got the greedies, you’ve got the greedies.
You’re suffering from greed.
You’ve got the greedies, you’ve got the greedies.
You take more than you need.

When things are offered and you take too many…
That means that others may not get any.
If you want too many …clothes, shoes, and stuff…
You’ve got the greedies and enough is enough.


One outfit at a time is all one body can wear.
Look down at your feet- you only have one pair!
My cure for “the greedies” …{take one dose today}
Don’t buy more “somethings”, give some things away
