"Eat The Rich" as written by Joe Perry, Steven Tyler and Jim Vallance....
Well I woke up this morning
On the wrong side of the bed
And how I got to thinkin'
About all those things you said
About ordinary people
And how they make you sick
And if callin' names kicks back on you
Then I hope this does the trick
'Cause I'm sick of your complainin'
About how many bills
And I'm sick of all your bitchin'
'Bout your poodles and your pills
And I just can't see no humor
About your way of life
And I think I can do more for you
With this here fork and knife
Eat the rich
There's only one thing that they are good for
Eat the rich
Take one bite now - come back for more
Eat the rich
I gotta get this off my chest
Eat the rich
Take one bite now - spit out the rest
So I called up my head shrinker
And I told him what I'd done
He said you best go on a diet
Yeah, I hope you have some fun
And a don't go burst the bubble
On rich folks who get rude
'Cause you won't get in no trouble
When you eats that kinda food
Now they're smokin' up their junk bonds
And then they go get stiff
And they're dancin' in the yacht club
With muff and uncle biff
But there's one good thing that happens
When you toss your pearls to swine
Their attitudes may taste like shit
But go real good with wine
Eat the rich
There's only one thing that they are good for
Eat the rich
Take one bite now - come back for more
Eat the rich
I gotta get this off my chest
Eat the rich
Take one bite now - spit out the rest
Believe in all the good things
That money just can't buy
Then you won't get no bellyache
From eatin' humble pie
I believe in rags to riches
Your inheritance won't last
So take your gray poupon my friend
And shove it up your ass
Eat the rich
There's only one thing that they are good for
Eat the rich
Take one bite now - come back for more
Eat the rich
I gotta get this off my chest
Eat the rich
Take one bite now - spit out the rest
Eat the rich
There's only one thing that they are good for
Eat the rich
Take one bite now - come back for more
Eat the rich
Don't stop me now, I'm goin' crazy
Eat the rich
That's my idea of a good time baby

    General CommentThis is one of the greatest diss songs ever. What I love about it is how Steven constantly throws insults toward rich people. The lyrics are pretty funny if you read through them. It's just a song that completely rejects authority.

    General Commenthey totaly agree with u u2elevation. This song kick ass,
    and the live-version on "little south of sanity" is even better. So much rock'n roll, humor and style in it that we must say, they did it again

    General CommentI'm 16 years old, and Aerosmith has been my favorite band ever, since I can remember. I didn't like the lyrics to this song very much, but I loved the riffs, especially the opening riff.

    General CommentI hate this song its just kind of strange I dont know why. I like the beginning part with that weird instrument and the end when there is a burp.

    General CommentThe drums on this are so strong. Kramer shows no mercy with this. Does anyone think this is a good song to get laid to? I do.

    General CommentHell, I'm a rich guy and even I love this song :oD it just sums up exactly how I feel about people that think being wealthy is an excuse to be snobbish and condescending towards other people. Rock on!
