"Penthouse Pauper" lyrics

Penthouse Pauper

Now, if I were a bricklayer
I wouldn't build just anything
And if I were a ball player
I wouldn't play no second string
And if I were some jewelry, baby
Lord, I'd have to be a diamond ring

If I were a secret
Lord, I never would be told
If I were a jug of wine
Lord, my flavor would be old
I could be most anything
But it got to be twenty-four karat solid gold

If I were a gambler
You know I'd never lose
And if I were a guitar player
Lord, I'd have to play the blues

If I were a hacksaw
My blade would be razor sharp
If I were a politician
I could prove that monkeys talk
You can find the tallest building
Lord, I'd have me the house on top

Oh, let's go
All right, keep going

I'm the penthouse pauper
I got nothing to my name
I'm the penthouse pauper, baby
I got nothing to my name
I can be most anything
Cause when you got nothing it's all the same

Oh, let's move to this song
Lord, look at my penthouse
