Dalton Deluder made a good dime from selling the Brooklyn Bridge
Truey the Toiler thought all along that the coin should be partially his
Once the Gray Goucho laid down his dinero it didn't quite go as he planned
Truey was gone and so was the mojo, left them with a big empty land

Music and greed
They all want to succeed
but you're strivin' for less
with that brand of success
Hey what you bought
your piece of the pie
is it gold is it naught
well take a good guess

Altruistic Aspirer he came along when the issue was paying the rent
He got caught up in Deluder's big game and hey a small fortune was spent
Truey returned knowing he was the only possible savior around
Within a short time yeah the outlook was better but trouble was coming to town

the goucho would need
to bring out his deed
Deluder he frowned
thought he owned the town
When the Aspirer
came into the know
He was on fire
No one cared bout the show

The Toiler keeps pluggin all night with his trusty friend along
With Madeleine Magic there ridin shotgun, he knows they can't go wrong

Music and greed
oh you better take heed
when they're sellin' used cars
Property on Mars
If ya do toil
Only do what you would
don't let your spirit be spoiled
Lay loose and play your guitars

Truey the Toiler had thought he did good but had to preside over this
Such an ordeal, those 3 lost the plot to fight over fake poker chips
Meanwhile the Toiler who brought all the action, he just wanted to go down the street
His work had no value in this sad world of Music and greed and deceit

Music and greed
We all want to succeed
but whether that's true
depends on the view
One guy loves the song
Some guys like to own
it makes em feel strong
Which one are you?

The Originals
One of the Originals here at Indie Music People Father Time AKA FT brings his quirky funny and serious commentary on the music scene and music industry.The song has a theme running through it, and oft repeats the challenges of being one who is artistic and plodding along the road of being a musician, one who hopes things might work out for them. The tune has a nice rhythmic quality and lyrically enjoyable, a true music crafter is one who Toils and improves their abilities each time they write a poem or a lyric for a song, on a scrap of paper, on the inside of a cigarette pack, or an idea for a title. It is the Trials and tribulations of being a singer songwriter making attempts to have ones music not only appreciated and enjoyed by people, fans even haters and have some sense of knowing someone likes what they do! Which one are you! One has to be in it for the long haul, and be willing to sacrifice for less then one expects sometimes and most times perhaps, The music biz is no respecter of persons. Do it because you love doing it, just like FT says, if a door opens,and you get a little win here and there and some like your vibe, then that is a good thing , no expectations, no disappointments, just continue sharpening your craft.
