rich girls lyrics – fitz and the tantrums

“rich girls”

suzie came wealthy family raised
went to college all her debts were paid
got a job down in soho
her daddy said don’t date him
he got no dough.

she had the doorman, elevator
penthouse alligator shoes and a driver that took her to school.
she got no need for any man even if you got a plan
you’d always end up playin’ the fool.

i was dreamin’ of a perfect union
but then i woke up to find
truth comes crashing down
don’t matter what you do cuz the

rich girls will break your heart and
poor girls will take your money
i confess and i repent for things i’ve done
my soul is spent
on rich girls
and poor girls

shonie came from a broken home
her mamma sick and her daddy long gone
got a job but it don’t pay no bread

lookin’ for a man
who’s well fed.

she got the low rent underground
pad lock studio blues and the bus fare
to take her to school
she sure needs a steady man always got a perfect plan
for you to pay up for playin’ the fool

i was dreaming of a perfect union
but then i woke up to find
truth comes crashing down
don’t matter what you do cuz

rich girls will break your heart and
poor girls will take your money
i confess and i repent for things i’ve done
my soul is spent

rich girls will break your heart and
poor girls will take your money
i confess and i repent for things i’ve done
my soul is spent

don’t need no rich girls
don’t need no poor girls
don’t need no rich girls
don’t need no poor girls
