Rich and Miserable

Kenny Chesney

Green grass, help the cows graze, hedgefund 401
Keg and milk and honey in the land of the free
New York Times, Farmer's Almanac
Too busy to call our mamas
Back porch ain't what it used to be

We don't know what we want
But we want it and we want it all right now
We're too young until we're too old
We're all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We're born, we work, we die, it's spiritual
Enough is never enough

American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won't be happy 'til we're rich and miserable
Go to school to get a job
Don't make enough to pay it off
And on and on it goes

Right wing blue jean, gotta get the new thing
Whatever it takes to make the world look at you, think
We're too young until we're too old
We're all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We're born, we work, we die, it's spiritual
Enough is never enough

American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won't be happy 'til we're rich and miserable
And maybe we'll get it (maybe we'll get it)
Maybe we won't (maybe we won't)
But even when we get it (but even when we get it)
Really we don't

We're too young until we're too old
We're all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We're born, we work, we die, it's spiritual
Enough is never enough

American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won't be happy 'til we're rich and miserable
Come on, get rich and miserable
Come on, get rich and miserable
