Kenny Chesney – Rich And Miserable


Too much is never too much
New York Times, Farmer’s Almanac
Back porch ain’t what it used to be

American dream never wakes up
Don’t make enough to pay it off
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
Keg and milk and honey in the land of the free
[Outro]
Right wing blue jean, gotta get the new thing
We don’t know what we want
Enough is never enough
Enough is never enough
American dream never wakes up
And maybe we’ll get it
Too busy to call our mamas
We’re too young until we’re too old

We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual

(Maybe we won’t)
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Come on, get rich and miserable
(And maybe we’ll get it)
Come on, get rich and miserable
And on and on it goes
Whatever it takes to make the world look at you, think…
Too much is never too much
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual

We’re too young until we’re too old
Too much is never too much
But even when we get it
(But even when we get it)
American dream never wakes up
[Bridge]
[Chorus]
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
Green grass, help the cows graze, hedgefund 401
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
[Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
We’re too young until we’re too old
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
[Verse 2]
Enough is never enough
Really we don’t
But we want it and we want it all right now
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
[Chorus]

Go to school to get a job
[Verse 1]
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Maybe we won’t
