Lyrics

“Rich and Miserable”

Kenny Chesney

[Verse 1]

Green grass, hope the cows graze
Hedge fund, 401
Cake, milk and honey in the land of the free
[Verse 2] New York Times, Farmers Almanac
Too busy to call our momma
Back porch ain’t what it used to be
We don’t know what we want, but we want it
And we want it, all right now
[Chorus] We’re too young until we’re too old
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Enough is never enough
American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
(We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable)

[Verse 3] Go to school to get a job
Don’t make enough to pay it off
And on and on it goes
Right wing blue jean, gotta get the new thing
Whatever it takes to make the world look at you thing

[Chorus] We’re too young until we’re too old
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Enough is never enough
American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

[Bridge] And maybe we’ll get it (And maybe we’ll get it)
Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
And maybe we won’t (Maybe we won’t)
But even when we get it (But even when we get it)
Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Really we don’t

[Chorus] We’re too young until we’re too old
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Enough is never enough
American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

[Outro] Come on, get rich and miserable
Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Come on, get rich and miserable
