Psychefunkapus — Work Like A Horse/drink Like A Fish lyrics

Atom Ellis)
Take a little from the big man
Take a little from the sky
Take a little from the big man
Just enough to get by on
For the fear of God and broken laws
I've remained a broken man
It's tough to see when I walk down the street
People eating from a garbage can
Hey, you, on the other side
This river is getting wider
Hey, now, when the money's spent
We can't feed our habits on rhetoric
And the people singing, "There ain't no winning
Work like a horse, drink like a fish."
Had a talk with your mama last night
Had a talk with my mama last night
She said, "Eat, my darling, make yourself alright."
And the people singing, "There ain't no winning
Work like a horse, drink like a fish."
This river is getting wider
This river is getting higher too
Hey, you, on the other side
This river is getting wider
Hey, now, when the money's spent
We can't feed our babies on rhetoric
Hey, you on the other side
This river is getting wider
Hey, Mr. President
We can't feed our babies on rhetoric
And the people singing, "There ain't no winning,
Work like a horse, drink like a fish."
