Rich Man, Poor Man - Lyrics

I need a bride but the dolphins are running
A woman who'd cry but the sea must provide
A child to unravel the snarled nets of loving
First things first when you get to the sea

A rich man eats when he wishes
A poor man whenever he can

I need a home but my boots keep growing
The healing and peace that a fire would provide
A place to unburden a brain of its sorrow
First things first when you get to the fire

A rich man eats when he wishes
A poor man whenever he can

I need a song but the spring is for sowing
A word to the wise that the earth must provide
A tomb to untangle the riddle of growing
First things first when you get to the land

A rich man eats when he wishes
A poor man whenever he can

I need the moon but the landlord need money
A field of wild flowers that the stars could provide
A bird on my shoulder to fly through the rainbow
First things first when you get to the sky

A rich man eats when he wishes
A poor man whenever he can
