Rockefeller Square

This song is by Jimmy Buffett and appears on the album High Cumberland Jubilee (1971) and on the compilation Before The Beach (1993).

Did ya ever just wanna lay down, tell the world ya had enough
Did ya ever just wanna drop out, when the goin' got a little bit rough
Have you ever walked the sidewalks hungry
Have you ever really had the blues?
So now you wanna see how the other half lived
Well, brother what ya got to lose?

Whatcha got to lose if you leave your home
And you never think think of ever goin' back
Your father's making money for the good of the country
And your moma's out bettin' at the track

Camptown ladies sing them songs, doo-daa, doo-daa
And now you're gonna let your hair grow long
Get a little pad up town
Throw away your checkbook and all your credit cards
And use your wits to get around
And you think it's gonna make you happy
See your story in the evening news
If you know it's just a game of tryin' to point the blame
Brother, whatcha got to lose?

Hey, lonely Rockefeller Square
The underground world don't fit a millionaire
Hey, Rocky, whatcha gonna do
First time you ever had the pressure on you
Hey, rock when the rockin' and the bombin' is through
There'll still be a piece of daddy's kingdom for you

Now Rocky ya sure hurt ya mama
And your daddy got an ulcer over you
With the stock market shot and the war still hot
It sure was a cruel thing to do
So don't cry, boy

Hey, lonely Rockefeller Square
The underground life don't fit a millionaire
Hey, Rocky, whatcha gonna do?
First time you ever had the pressure on you
Rock when the rockin' and the bombin' is through
There'll still be a piece of daddy's kingdom for you

Money to pay, money today, don't ya go gay, Rocky better pray
Money today, money to pay, don't ya go gay, Rocky better pray
Money to pay, money today, don't ya go gay, Rocky better pray
Money today, money to pay, don't ya go gay, Rocky better pray
