Story Behind the Song

This a story about a friend from high school. I ran around chasing the music dream and never got married or had kids. Now he?s got a home and a family. I?m alone and I wanna be Rich


by Craig D. Jacobson

Rich wasn?t popular when we were in school
He never wore the right cloth, kids can be so cruel
He didn?t play sports, never had a girl
And back then I wouldn?t trade places with Rich for the world

He worked in a factory since the day we left school
Got married had a family, don?t know how they made it though
Never had a lot of money, barely had food
And I never would have thought I?d wanna be in his shoes

But twenty years later he?s got a wife and some kids
A home in the country with a white picket fence
I thought I had it all but I saw the light
Rich has everything that money can?t buy

I wanna be Rich and have a home in the country
A wife and some kids that mean more to me than money
I wanna be Rich and have a family who loves me
I wanna rock on the porch and go to church on Sundays
I wanna be Rich

At the twenty year reunion Rich pulled me aside
To share an old dream from high school, He thought it was time
He said you were always so popular, talented too
And I just gotta tell you I used to wanna be you
You had everything I dreamed of, I didn?t wanna be me
Ain?t it funny how time changes things


Now Rich he?s a Grandpa I heard the other day
And he can?t stop from smiling when he hears that babies name
He?s ganna watch him crawl, he?s ganna see his fist step
And that child?s first words will be grandpa I bet
And when the sun goes down on the life that Rich led
He?ll be proud of everything that he left


I wanna be Rich
