Check the new car out in the mirror
Here comes the fastest man in the traffic jam
A major road rager with a bone to pick
I'll take another quick look and I'm over it
Right you're richer now weren't you happier
When you were shit out of luck
You've got so much but you've forgotten
It's more fun when you don't give a fuck
Tear it down to the ground
A lot of kids grew up in there
You put it up and then you made a ton
Well aren't you the lucky one
Right you're richer now weren't you happier
When you were shit out of luck
You've got so much but you've forgotten
It's more fun when you don't give a fuck

Check the new car out in the mirror
Here comes the fastest man in the traffic jam
A major road rager with a bone to pick
I'll take another quick look and I'm over it
Tear it down to the ground
A lot of kids grew up in there
You put it up and you made a ton
Well aren't you the lucky one
Right you're richer now weren't you happier
When you were shit out of luck
You've got so much but you've forgotten
It's more fun when you don't give a fuck (2x)
( Right you're richer now weren't you happier
When you were shit out of luck
You've got so much but you've forgotten
It's more fun when you don't give a fuck [3x] )
Right you're richer now weren't you happier (2x)
( Right you're richer now weren't you happier
When you were shit out of luck
You've got so much but you've forgotten
It's more fun when you don't give a fuck [2x]

    General CommentMy favorite Bosstones song, and nobody has commented on it. What s surprise.

    The first part is about how Dicky used to road rage a lot, but now he just lets it go because it's not worth getting bent out of shape over. However, the main point of the song is to stop caring so much about your materialistic posessions and stay true to your roots. It's about how some people stab people (esp. those they cared about) in the back just to get ahead in life. They may have lots of money now, but they lost all of their dignity. They sell out their morals to make a profit. I think the Bosstones are saying that if you just let your cares go and stop worrying about whether or not you'll make enough money to buy that nice house in the hills, you'll end up living a happier much more prosperous life. Maybe you won't have all the money in the world, but at least you won't be greedy dickhead.
