Everybody's Equal

This song is by The Upper Crust and appears on the album Once More Into the Breeches (2001).

If you see a poor workin' man slavin' in a ditch
Givin' off a stench that makes you sick (that makes you sick)
I said don't spit on him - 'cause he's the same beneath his dirty old skin
And he can't help it if he's poor and if you're rich
And that's why everybody's equal - some more than others
I said, hold out your hand and throw a penny to your brothers
You can't all be quite as equal as me - but I'm sure you will still agree
That everybody's equal - to a greater or lesser degree

You know some very beautiful women - they just happen to be born poor
And they're tryin' to keep starvation from their door
You know they're out on the street - they're tryin' to make ends meet
And some people call them dirty old whores
But they ain't no different from your daughter, or your mother
As a matter of fact - they're considerably better lovers
And their assets smell much sweeter - of that I'm sure
And that's why everybody's equal - some more than others
I said, hold out your hand - throw a penny to your brothers
We can't all be quite the same - well if you're poor don't you be ashamed
Cause everybody's equal - in their homely little way

Oh yeah, everybody's equal - some more than others
I said, hold out your hand and throw a penny to your brothers
You can't all be quite as equal as me - but I'm sure you will still agree
That everybody's equal - to a greater or lesser degree

Everybody's equal!
In their own little way!
Everybody's equal!
Yeah-yeah-yay!
