lyrics

Why don't millenials buy up more diamonds?
Why don't they're parents just give em some gold?
Don't they know that precious metals
Retain their value right till ya choke?
Why don't they know how to play the stock market?
Why don't they build up their own house of cards?
And pull from the bottom, and watch them all fall down
Black ones and red ones, all broken hearts

Why don't they drink less, and save up their money?
They'd be go-getters if they went without vice
Why don't they lend out their hard worked at money?
And gain a percentage from children and wives?
Why don't they swindle their friends and their family?
And get them to borrow and owing them more?
Why don't you people just get with the program?
Shake down your people, get'em real poor

Why don't millenials buy up more diamonds?
Why don't they're parents just give em some gold?
Don't they know that precious metals
Retain their value right till ya choke?
Why don't they know how to play the stock market?
Why don't they build up their own house of cards?
And pull from the bottom, and watch them all fall down
Black ones and red ones, all broken hearts

I've met go-getters for evil or virtue
And I've met the broken with a similar chance
They'll buy and buy to appear like go-getters
Go-getters all laugh and they charge in advance
Why don't you start up a business for profit?
Why don't you seize what's rightfully yours?
Go to the bank and laugh all the way
They're selling a joke and the butt of it's yours

Why don't millenials buy up more diamonds?
Why don't they're parents just give em some gold?
Don't they know that precious metals
Retain their value right till ya choke?
Why don't they know how to play the stock market?
Why don't they build up their own house of cards?
And pull from the bottom, and watch them all fall down
Black ones and red ones, all broken hearts

These questions I'm asking all beckon an answer
You'll hear them answers, just round all the time
Radio, internet, jokes on the T.V.
The laughing gets louder the higher you climb
Ladders get kicked down as soon as they're put up
Glass ceilings get smashed and promptly installed
Imagine the good we could accomplish
If ya helped up another instead of watching'em fall

Why don't millenials buy up more diamonds?
Why don't they're parents just give em some gold?
Don't they know that precious metals
Retain their value right till ya choke?
Why don't they know how to play the stock market?
Why don't they build up their own house of cards?
And pull from the bottom, and watch them all fall down
Black ones and red ones, all broken hearts
Pull from the bottom, and watch them all fall down
Black ones and red ones, all broken hearts
