Some Get Rich Roger Creager
At the end of the verses play - E A B E
[E]61st floor [A]way downtown,
You can't see w[B]hat's coming down
The [E]mail lady brings a pink slip
And an [A]empty box for my desk
Says, "[E]Pack what you [A]brought leave [B]us the [E]rest."
[E]Down in the parking garage I pray my truck starts again
[E]When the CEO passes me in his [B]new Mercedes Benz
He's [E]toking on a Cuban
While mine [A]blows out the tailpipe
[E]Some get [A]rich while the [B]rest get [E]by
The [A]rich keep getting richer, but I keep staying poor
I'm [E]working this overtime to help event the score
It [A]feels like I'm working towards the welfare line,
[F#m]But someday I'll get [B]mine
The big boss man and his jolly pirate crew
Were watching and planning
And plotting to get away with the loot
So clever and so quiet,
Wall Street never heard a sound
They grabbed the last piece of gold as the ship went down
Now there's handcuffs jangling against a Rolex watch
And a squad car at the palace there to chauffeur him off
But, you know, I'll bet some poor working stiff gets stuck serving the time
Cause some get rich while the rest get by
I met up with old Saint Peter there
At the Great Pearly Gates
He told my old boss in front of me,
"Sir you'll have to wait."
Then he waved me on through and he winked his eye
He told me, "Some get rich while the rest get by."
