lyrics

The Idle Rich - Parts I and II

It's not a silver spoon
It's a silver band
You don't put it in your mouth; you wear it on your hand
Refinement and class, worthy of the idle rich
Luxurious gold, with an ivory finish
And the boys are like, heyyyyy - what have you got on your wrist?
And the girls are like, heyyyyy - can I get a little kiss?

_______

Why wasn't the hat the next big thing?
Was it a price point deal, or the marketing?
But the courtesy and warmth your greeting brings
Goes deeper than how low your hat brim swings

So here's a tip of the hat to ol' James Boyle
Here's to the hunger to innovate
It's the head for ideas and a willingness to toil
It's what makes this country great

Perhaps what counts is the effort that shows
Maybe the gift is the hand raised and the hat tip
The open palm is rich with meaning, you know
But you won't find such storied depths in the movement of clothes

So here's a tip of the hat to ol' James Boyle
Here's to the hunger to innovate
It's the head for ideas and a willingness to toil
It's what makes this country great

Is there a lesson to be learned?
Is there a lesson to be learned??
Is there a lesson to be learned???
Is there a lesson to be learned????

Have some fucking common sense and understand your audience
Have some fucking common sense and understand your audience
Have some fucking common sense and understand your audience
Have some fucking common sense and understand your audience
