O Lucky Man: “Justice”

 

We all want justice but you got to have the money to buy it
You’d have to be a fool to close your eyes and deny it
There’s a lot of poor people who are walking the streets of my town
Too blind to see that justice is used to do them right down

All life from beginning to end
You pay your monthly installments
Next to health is wealth
And only wealth will buy you justice

There’ll always be a fool who insists on taking his chances
And that is the man who believes in true love romances
He will trust and rely on the goodness of human nature
Now a judge will tell you that’s a pathetic creature

All life from beginning to end
You pay your monthly installments
Next to health is wealth
And only wealth will buy you justice

Money, justice
Money and justice
Money, justice

O Lucky Man: “Pastorale” and “Look Over Your Shoulder”


When there’s a bluebird singing by your window pane
And the sun shines bright all day through
Don’t forget boy, look over your shoulder
‘Cause there’s always someone coming after you (la la la la)

When everything in life seems just as it should be
At last success seems just around the door
Don’t forget boy, look over your shoulder
‘Cause things don’t stay the same forever more (la la la la)

Hope springs eternal in a young man’s breast
And he dreams of a better life ahead
Without that dream you are nothing, nothing, nothing—
You have to find out for yourself that dream is dead (la la la la)

Dead (la la la la) repeat to fade . . .

O Lucky Man: “Sell Sell”

Sell, sell, sell, sell everything you stand for
Tell, tell, tell, tell all the people that you care for
Running here, running there, keep it moving, sonny, don’t despair
Because the next one will be . . . the best one of the year

Give, give, give, give everything you paid for
Run, run, run, run for everything you prayed for
Keep that smile on your face
With a smile you’re welcome any place
Because the next one will be . . . the best one of the year

Can I interest you in this article of mine?
Can I interest you to spare some of your time?
Can I interest you in this life of mine?
Won’t you listen, listen, listen, listen, listen?

Sell, sell, sell, sell everything you stand for
Tell, tell, tell, tell all the people that you care for
Running here, running there, keep it moving, sonny, don’t despair
Because the next one will be . . . the best one of the year

O Lucky Man: “Poor People”

Poor people are poor people, and they don’t understand
A man’s got to make whatever he wants, and take it with his own hands.

Poor people stay poor people, and they never get to see
Someone’s got to win in the human race, if it isn’t you, then it has to be me.

So smile while you’re makin’ it / Laugh while you’re takin’ it / Even though you’re fakin’ it
Nobody’s gonna know . . . nobody’s gonna know.

It’s no use mumbling, it’s no use grumbling; life just isn’t fair
There’s no easy days, there’s no easy ways. Just get out there and do it!

And sing and they’ll sing your song / Laugh while you’re getting on
Smile and they’ll string along, and nobody’s gonna know
Nobody’s gonna know / Nobody’s gonna know / And nobody’s gonna know . . .
