Race

run

run

as fast as you can

you can’t keep up

with the Jones’, man

they’ve got all the money

they’ve got all the stuff

they wallow in riches

while you have it rough

sit on your ass

watch your too big TV

wish you could be as ________ as me

pretty

slender

rich

well hung

smart

bespoke

with a honeyed tongue

it ain’t gonna happen

it never will be

nothing’s as ugly

as the American dream
