Daniel Johnston - Burn Baby Burn lyrics

A rich man and a poor man stood face to face The poor man said to the rich man can I have a piece of cake The rich man just laughed and threw his dog the crumbs And the poor man stood hungry as the rich man's dog ate The rich man died and went to hell And the poor man died and went to heaven And the rich man cried a night in pain Can I have a drink of water I'm going in an everlasting plain The poor man stood ashore and sighed There was no way to get to the other side The rich man bit his lip and cried He said I wish my soul could die Well the rich man's dog died and went to heaven Because he was just a stupid animal he didn't know wrong from right He was just a stupid animal Well the poor man and the rich man's dog sat eating cake With chocolate ice cream and soilent stake And the rich man said for heaven's sake And his skin burned in a firelake The rich man said maybe I was wrong I guess I was just a low life scum And I'll suffer now for evermore And my suffering will never be done I wish I had been a better man He sat wishing And he burned and he burned and he burned And he wished he had been a better man
