I Didn't Build it for Me

You think I built this for me?
You think I built this for me?
This isn't mine - it's yours, it's really for you
I didn't build it for me

I don't have the time to enjoy it
I'm asked why I don't use the facilities
I don't have the slightest inclination
I won't consider it, I didn't build it for me...

There's a plaque in the hall
My name's on the wall
And a statue of my family
It wasn't my decision
It was all in a vision
I didn't build it, I never would have built it
I really didn't build it for me...

One man stood alone
One man did succeed
I'm the man, I'm the one
I didn't build it for me
One man stood alone
Numero uno
I'm the man, I'm the one
I'm the man of the hour!...

I used to say, "Why doesn't somebody
do something about this?"
I cried, "Oh, what about this need?"
Then a voice said, "You do something about it"
I said, "Oh woooow you mean me?"...
