KEEPING UP WITH THE JONES'

Lyrics

Too Proud To Whitewash - Too Poor To Paint by Andy Budd (ASCAP)

He's got three kids in private school, 2 Beemers in the drive / And fifteen different credit cards, that keep the dream alive / In his cookie cutter mansion, with an interest only loan / Burnin' the midnight oil, tryin' to keep up with the Jones. / He's goin' broke in style, makin' a hundred grand a year / His neighbor's findin' out the truth, that's his greatest fear

HE'S WORKIN EVERY ANGLE TRYIN TO KEEP THE WOLVES AT BAY / AIN'T FOOLING NO ONE BUT HIS SELF IN A STUPID SORTA WAY / HE'S ALL HAT NO CATTLE, TRYIN' TO BE SOME ONE HE AIN'T / TOO PROUD TO WHITEWASH AND TOO POOR TO PAINT

He's keepin up appearances, but drowning in debt / Like walkin' a high wire, without a safety net / Everyday another wolf comes scratchin on the door / The sound is gettin' louder and harder to ignore. / Every night he gets down on his knees to pray / Lord, help me, Jesus, get me through another day

HE'S WORKIN EVERY ANGLE TRYIN TO KEEP THE WOLVES AT BAY / AIN'T FOOLING NO ONE BUT HIS SELF IN A STUPID SORTA WAY / HE'S ALL HAT NO CATTLE, TRYIN' TO BE SOME ONE HE AIN'T / TOO PROUD TO WHITEWASH AND TOO POOR TO PAINT

He's in over his head Lord what's was he tryin to prove / It's just a matter of time 'fore the whole thing comes unglued / He's been flyin' so high he couldn't see the ground / And this house of cards he's livin' in will soon come crashing down / And then maybe he'll wake up and come to realize / that happiness and peace of mind is somethin' you can't buy

HE'S WORKIN EVERY ANGLE TRYIN TO KEEP THE WOLVES AT BAY / AIN'T FOOLING NO ONE BUT HIS SELF IN A STUPID SORTA WAY / HE'S ALL HAT NO CATTLE, TRYIN' TO BE SOME ONE HE AIN'T / TOO PROUD TO WHITEWASH AND TOO POOR TO PAINT
