Lyrics

Old man, you ought to stop Trying to live a rich man's life Don't go out and buy a Cadillac If you know your money ain't right Find it's so much easier Living within your means If you can't afford caviar Don't be ashamed to eat pork and beans, yeah I'm not trying to tell you how to do it I'm only saying put some thought into it Be what you are, my friend And live the life Be what you are, my friend And live the life Just because your neighbor's child Attends some private school Don't try to send yours Knowing all the time you're really not able to Don't try to live like a king, yeah On a poor man's pay That's one reason that so many People are hurting today, Lord
