The Rich lyrics

The Rich

Lili and the Puppets:

The rich put cream on their berries
The rich drive shiny black cars

Puppets:

The rich go here
The rich go there

Lili:

It’s close to the truth

Puppets:

But far from fair

Lili:

The rich stay cozy all winter

Puppets:

Stay cold the month of July

Lili and the Puppets:

But for all of the world
We wouldn’t switch
We’re glad we’re rich

Carrot Top:

Gee, Lili, I didn’t know you could sing like that. You just hit a high C.

Lili:

I’m sorry, Carrot Top, I won’t do it again.

Marguerite:

That is a compliment, dear, very few girls are able to reach a C. I of course, have been known to reach high M about L. I’ll never forget, when I was playing Carmen in Aida…

Lili and the Puppets:

The rich put cream on their berries
The rich drive shiny black cars
The rich go here
The rich go there
It’s close to the truth

Marguerite:

Or was it Aida in Carmen?

Lili and the Puppets:

The rich stay cozy all winter
Stay cold the month of July
But for all of the world
We wouldn’t switch

Marguerite:

Of course, my best role was Barbara of Seville…

Lili and Puppets:

We’re glad we’re rich
