or
Memphis Slim

You may not have me all the time
You may never go my way
Mother earth is laying for you
Cuz of all the debts you got to pay

Don't care how great you are
Don't care what you worth
When it all ends up you got to
Go back to mother earth

You may own a half a city
Even diamonds and pearls
You may buy that plane baby
And fly all over this world

Don't care how rich you are
Don't care what you worth
When it all ends up you got to
Go back to mother earth

You may play race horses
You may own that race track
You may have enough money baby
To buy anything you like

Don't care how great you are
Don't care what you worth
When it all ends up you got to
Go back to mother earth
