"Steve Forbert's Midsummer Night's Toast" as written by and S. Forbert....
.Here's to all you all you lucky dogs, it's heads or tails
Here's to all you filthy rich, I wish you well
Here's to all the pretty women made for cash
And here's to dashing daddy's son he's such a flash.

Well, I been lookin' and walkin' 'round the
Sunset square
Singin' an' talkin' with my friends down there
Sittin' an' lis'nin' with a young man's ear
To all the rainbow dreams

Here's to all the shitty jobs that I despise
Here's to two-bit guarantees and other lies
Here's to roads of burning tar and hot cement
Here's to money in my hand and where it went

Well, I got my fingers a-tapping on the hard
Stone steps
I'm waiting for lightning and the rains to fall
Young lovers are loafin' with their sidewalk smiles
And all their rainbow dreams

Amy Alice in the Summer
With a sack lunch and a punch card
See my sister with a drag job
Man, she feels like she's a hundred years ago

Here's to people living lives that they regret
Work your fingers to the bone and sink in debt
Here's to all those shaky tricks that hustlers try
You know their easy money is oft' times hard
They flash a grin an' they wink their eye, well

I been livin' an' breathin' in the rat trap town
Tryna get over where the wall breaks down
Holdin' my head up with my thin tired arms
And all my rainbow dreams
