The Bacon Brothers

"Almost Got Rich"

I almost got rich after all of these years
I almost had money coming out of my ears
Run off the road and back in the ditch
Cause I almost got never got couldn't get

Boulder coloradao one nine sixty five(1965)
In a four(4) piece cover band called Peter and the wolves
What we lacked in musical skill
We made up raising hell
But peter's grandmother's
Uncle's friend
Knew neil sedaka's manager who said he would send
My funky little band on a national tour
So we waited by the phone
And we waited and we waited some more

I almost got rich after all of these years
I almost had money coming out of my ears
Run off the road and back in the ditch
Cause I almost got never got couldn't get

Four(4) years later Philadelphia
With my old friend Larry in the group good news
Mr. Davis wanted to know
If the Jesus thing would go
But a gay priest rabbi waited in the wings
Writing all the words to the songs i had to sing
It was muhammed and buddah and just plain weird
But i closed my eyes and sang and the people cheered

Yeah
I almost got rich after all of these years
I almost had money coming out of my ears
Run off the road and back in the ditch
Cause I almost got never got couldn't get

If living a life in music girl is it's own reward
Wrap your little hand around that golden credit card
Knowing you believe in me is all that gets me through
But what's in it for you babe
I have n't got a clue
Yeah, yeah

I almost got (money), (money) (I almost got)
I almost got get girl (rich)
No, no in fine all to do
(Money), (money), (money) (I almost got)
I almost got (rich) (money), (money), (money), (money) and couldn't

Forty(40) years later nothing much has changed
Here we are still banging away
To the sound of grinding gears
Another song appears
And a station in new jersey is playing our cd
But my brothers in la and then he's got a movie
The band's off touring then it's fergie and the peas
Don't look now boy cause your dreams
Are down around your knees

Yeah, yeah, yeah
I almost got rich after all of these years
I almost had money coming out of my ears
Run off the road and back in the ditch
Cause I almost got never got couldn't get rich
I almost had money coming out of my ears
Run off the road and back in the ditch
Cause I almost got never got couldn't get rich
