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
