i wish i was a rich man,
a genius or a leader
the man that i wanna be
should i get a real job
start a real life have a future
is this what i’m meant to be
but i’m a drifter
with a pipe dream
to live a full life
this is life to me
if i had a new car
and a big house
from a desk job
would this still be the real me
i’ve got a torn mind between my dreams
and what this world says i need to be
if i was a genius with a clear mind
and a good heart
things would be so clear
give me more cash and some success
maybe then i’d be a real man
with a real life and security
to make me smile again
till the sun sets
then i’d be a rich man
a dead man with a head stone
to tell the world
i was a real man.
