About the song
Just thinking about the current political trend in the U.S. in 2010 and how some people really need our help and we should help them. There are too many, though, that can work and contribute, but they are looking for a free ride and government gets bigger and more controlling to take care of them and to serve the politicians instead of the people
Lyrics
Rich Lady Beggin

Intro - 1st Verse:

I was walking out of Wal-Mart when
she stepped in front of me.

She said Sir can you spare me some change?

She looked like she needed it so I gave her a five,
but something about her seemed strange.

My curiosity made me follow her home,
what I saw didn't make any sense.

She had a broken down mansion,
ivy covering up its face,
surrounded by a falling down fence.

Chorus:

She was a rich lady beggin, on the street, like she was poor.

How did she get down so low, from where she was before?

She was a socialized mother (mother - mother).

Her wealth taxed and donated, but no longer created.

A rich lady beggin (beggin), cause she couldn't give no more.

2nd Verse:

She lived by the Bible; wanted to give more than receive.
She knew how to reap what she had sown.

So she gave to people who would take what they could get
and she reaped until she couldn't reap no more

Chorus:

She was a rich lady beggin, on the street, like she was poor.

How did she get down so low, from where she was before?

She was a socialized mother (mother - mother).

Her wealth taxed and donated, but no longer created.

A rich lady beggin (beggin), cause she couldn't give no more.

3rd Verse-Bridge:

Her wealth re-distribution removed the taker's ambitions,
Now they're robbing hoods, stealing from the poor.

They felt so entitled, their greed grew unbridled, now
they're banging down the rich lady's door.

Chorus:

She was a rich lady beggin, on the street, like she was poor.

How did she get down so low, from where she was before?

She was a socialized mother, (mother-mother).

Her wealth taxed and donated, but no longer created.

A rich lady beggin (beggin), cause she couldn't give no more.

Bridge to end:

She was a socialized mother, she gave to every cause,
until she herself became one, now she's beggin - beggin -
beggin for her own.
