Tom Paxtron – If The Poor Don’t Matter Lyrics

If the kids are hungry, but got nothing to eat
If the baby has a fever, but there is no heat
If they’re living in a Chevy, as the world walks by

PRE-CHORUS:
If the poor don’t matter,
Then neither do I

CHORUS:
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter
Then neither do I

If their living in cardboard or a packing case
If their gone by morning and they leave no trace
If nobody wonders if they live or they die

PRE-CHORUS:
If the poor don’t matter
Then neither do I

CHORUS:
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter,
Then neither do I

Push em back, sweep em out, anything to keep them out
Keep them real friendly out, standing with their hands out
Honking in the back gate, radio talking hey,
Wrong hears strong you know they don’t belong here
My house, my car, living like a rock star
Caviar, wet rawr, bought another Jaguar
Get it all pai, now its time a play date
Trouble enough to think about not to make a stink about

If the poor don’t matter
If we chase them away
We’re gonna see them again, boys
On the judgement day
We’re gonna see them again, boys
On the day we die

PRE-CHORUS:
If the poor don’t matter
Then neither do I

CHORUS:
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter,
Then neither do I

CHORUS:
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter,
If the poor don’t matter,
Then neither do I
