too much will make you poor - A recent song from me



https://soundcloud.com/2rightly/too-much-will-make-you-poor-1

It's decades old
but the production and performance is new

Feed back would be charmin, I'm sure


the lyrics:

too much will make you poor

better getting bigger

cannot be stopped

deathened by the thunder

or is that just the way he talks?

if there ain't no room for you to wander

then he loves you not


do you speak the language,

have you a hand to hold?

thinking you can stand it,

am I to go down alone?

the falling that it takes until I'm landed

is no longer than rope

the falling that it takes until I'm landed is no longer than rope

seems like ev'rytime you turn about another joker more

are you the joker in the crowd asking well what for?
too much, too much
too much will make you poor


the hardest work of all,

it is the worst paid

still y' might have washed your hands

before showing your face
it's good for your health they say

but it leaves a bad taste

so I told it to the mountain,

his most royal highness

n' to the silhouettes of false kings,

they were shouting in the darkness
let it be said that greater men

have died for less

let it be said that greater men have died for less

patience is a virtue, you cannot be too sure

you'll know it when I hurt you, you ain't no child no more

too much, too much
too much will make you poor

too much, too much
too much will make you poor

Great tune, it definitely has some Prince in its DNA. Lyrically exciting with just the right amount of ambiguity and the music drifts along on a lovely cloud with some great changes. Piano work is really cool and the string section provides a deliciously subversive element. Fabulous work 😎✌🎸🎹
