This song could have lots more verses. If you have one, let’s see it. Put it in the comments. Clockwork offered two good verses and I used one, the window washer verse.
The song was inspired by songs Slowpaw Steve and Leadfoot have done and the comments of everyday life. 2 chords! Could not afford 3 right now.
The Rich Get Richer
[I] Bev’s a beautician; at night she tends bar, To feed the kids and drive a crappy car.
CHORUS : And the [IV] rich get richer and the [I] poor stay poor.
And the [IV] rich get richer and the [I]poor stay poor.
Wayne works hard, his hours are long;
Pays more taxes than the rich, the system’s gone wrong.
Mike’s a window washer. He can barely move sometimes,
Healthcare don’t pay nothin’ but nickels and dimes.
They go down to Walmart; buy things they think they need
And the things they buy are mostly Chinese.
Politician, fat cat and millionaire,
Screw them poor people, he just don’t care.
