Overtime & Demun Jones – Rich Man Poor Man Lyrics

A lot of folks think if you got a few dollars you got it made
They think that’s all there is
They don’t see everything that happened before that
They just see you right now, there’s more to it, a lot more

They say a rich man, he ain’t got no problems
He’s got all that he’s wanted, he never has to borrow
But he’ll never see tomorrow
If every day’s the same
He works so much he never leaves his office most days
They say a poor man, he’s got all the problems
Everything is borrowed and he’s gotta work tomorrow
But you’ll never see the sorrow or the tears upon his face
He’s always got a family and a dream he’ll always chase
They say a rich man, a poor man, together they are one in the same
We got one full life and we better go live it like we’re livin like we’re dying today

I guess they gotta divide us so we get conquered and fall
But we could stand among each other and not bicker at all
Imagine that, imagine life without a system that’s against us
Designed to make us hate each other more than a resistance
They mask up and they ask us if we’ve finally had enough
We stand up to fight back and they turn the pressure up
An attack on independence if you choose to press your luck
So don’t be wise, believe the lies and you can have another cup
I’m askin why’s there’s upper class and lower class and middle
And why’s a credit score the answer to the social riddle
See rich or poor it ain’t no more different for the sides
We’re all inside this hamster wheel just fightin to survive
See I wake up the same as you and you the same as I
So why’s there all this fightin for position in the line
We’ll finish all the same when the shovel hits the dirt
Cause one thing God will never ask is what the fucks your net worth

They say a rich man, he ain’t got no problems
He’s got all that he’s wanted, he never has to borrow
But he’ll never see tomorrow
If every day’s the same
He works so much he never leaves his office most days
They say a poor man, he’s got all the problems
Everything is borrowed and he’s gotta work tomorrow
But you’ll never see the sorrow or the tears upon his face
He’s always got a family and a dream he’ll always chase
They say a rich man, a poor man, together they are one in the same
We got one full life and we better go live it like we’re livin like we’re dying today

It’s been a while since I looked at a price tag
I Must admit
How far We came from paint shipping off the walls I won’t forget
How I begged, prayed cried and even grinded until it hurt
So I could never let these shiny things determine my worth
Not long ago There was a time That I believed if only
I got my hands on 100grand none of my problems
Could hold me
But I’ve long since cleared that hurdle the trophy’s bologna
Pull up a chair and let me tell u the story homie
The very day I left treatment see I went straight to the rooms
I asked for phone numbers and help
90 days flew by soon
I showed up every day I was the hardest worker in sight
Took months & every cent I made to cover the checks I used to write
I undid all that I could do but the stigma remained
I held my head up in disgrace I marched straight through the Pain
Came out the other side shiny brother please don’t forget
That Most rich men are poor men that were just too stubborn to quit

They say a rich man, he ain’t got no problems
He’s got all that he’s wanted, he never has to borrow
But he’ll never see tomorrow
If every day’s the same
He works so much he never leaves his office most days
They say a poor man, he’s got all the problems
Everything is borrowed and he’s gotta work tomorrow
But you’ll never see the sorrow or the tears upon his face
He’s always got a family and a dream he’ll always chase
They say a rich man, a poor man, together they are one in the same
