Well I woke up this morning On the wrong side of the bed And how I got to thinkin' About all those things you said About ordinary people And how they make you sick And if callin' names kicks back on you Then I hope this does the trick 'cause I'm sick of your complainin' About how many bills And I'm sick of all your bitchin' 'Bout your poodles and your pills And I just can't see no humor About your way of life And I think I can do more for you With this here fork and knife Eat the rich There's only one thing that they are good for Eat the rich Take one bite now - come back for more Eat the rich I gotta get this off my chest Eat the rich Take one bite now - spit out the rest So I called up my head shrinker And I told him what I'd done He said you best go on a diet Yeah, I hope you have some fun And a don't go burst the bubble On rich folks who get rude 'Cause you won't get in no trouble When you eats that kinda food Now they're smokin' up their junk bonds And then they go get stiff And they're dancin' in the yacht club With muff and uncle biff But there's one good thing that happens When you toss your pearls to swine Their attitudes may taste like shit But go real good with wine Eat the rich There's only one thing that they are good for Eat the rich Take one bite now - come back for more Eat the rich I gotta get this off my chest Eat the rich Take one bite now - spit out the rest Believe in all the good things That money just can't buy Then you won't get no bellyache From eatin' humble pie I believe in rags to riches Your inheritance won't last So take your gray poupon my friend And shove it up your ass Eat the rich There's only one thing that they are good for Eat the rich Take one bite now - come back for more Eat the rich I gotta get this off my chest Eat the rich Take one bite now - spit out the rest Eat the rich There's only one thing that they are good for Eat the rich Take one bite now - come back for more Eat the rich Don't stop me now, I'm goin' crazy Eat the rich That's my idea of a good time baby

Homer from Springfield, KyI watched the music video for this and realized something. Steven Tyler is a mutant. No human beings lips could be that huge.
Ozzi from Brookhaven, PaYea thats so true that Paris Hilton is an example of what this song means. But you know society gives in to them by treating them like they're above the law like when Nicole Richie got arrested, she was supposed to spend 30 days in prison but instead she got out after 80 hours or somethin like that because the court.
Sally from Ventura, CaThis Song Is Great. It Makes Me Think Of Paris Hilton Or Just Any "Famous" Person That Thinks They Are Better, Or More Important Then Anyone Else; When In Fact They Are The Same As Anyone Else, They Just Happen To Be Rich.
Joe from Chicago, IlMotorhead's version is different and it came out 6 years before Aerosmith's version, but Krokus was the first to use the song title.
Trent from Swift Current, CanadaDoesn't Motorhead do a cover of this ??
Emily from Ontario, CanadaThis is a great song from Aerosmith. One of my favorites!!:D
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
