Die 5 besten Songs über Armut

1) Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked – Cage The Elephant

 

There ain’t no rest for the wicked
Money don’t grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
There ain’t nothing in this world for free
No I can’t slow down
I can’t hold back
Though you know I wish I could
No there ain’t no rest for the wicked
Until you close our eyes for good

Not even 15 minutes later
I’m still walkin‘ down the street
When I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight
And then he swept up from behind
He put a gun up to my head
He made it clear he wasn’t lookin‘ for a fight

He said give me all you got
I want your money not your life
But if you try to make a move I won’t think twice

I told him you can have my cash
But first you know I gotta ask
What made you want to live this kind of life
(Der ganze Text ist sehr, sehr lesenswert)

2) Jennifer‘s Jacket – The Presidents of The United States of America



This is a list of malformations
But it would cost one hundred dollars for alterations
We all know that the pressed leather is in
But you can’t keep warm in the winter in December in the city when it’s 32 degrees below zero
with a safety pin!

3) Silas Stingy – The Who



He bought a safe to put the box in
And a house to put the safe in
And a watchdog on a chain to make quite sure
And his face was very funny
When he counted up his money
And he realized he hadn’t any more

4) I Need A Dollar – Aloe Blacc



I had a job but the boss man let me go
He said
I’m sorry but I won’t be needing your help no more
I said
please mister boss man I need this job more than you know
But he gave me my last paycheck and he sent me on out the door .

5) 22 Grand Job – The Rakes



This girl from work, looks alright
But the lights are too bright
Bloke in sales likes her too
What am I supposed to do?
But he’s earning 28
And I’m on 22
It’s alright, it’s alright
In the city it’s alright
