lyrics

If you are frugal and wise,
you’ll find that doors will open
The tally of advancements multiplies
and the gains accrue to you in scope and size
And when they do so,
prepare yourself for calumny and abuse-oh
Like the Fraticelli in the thirteenth century
They’ll tell you how it ought to be
They don’t care how you got it
No being lucky and no being smart
No more vacations or restoring hot rods or collecting art
No point trying to fight ‘em
When a house or an apartment is a luxury item
Good luck finding someone who says that’s as it should be
but to say it isn’t is a heresy
and not a new one either
No more no settling for second best
No more fine oil or lotion to soothe the feet of a special guest

If you think I want to pay top dollar for the things that I most prize
I don’t, but I’ll find a way, just ‘cause what’s life for otherwise?
But when somebody worth ten of me
Can pay triple what I did for a third of what I got
So you think of them instead of me
And there’s nothing I can do to make you believe I’m not
the same as they are
You’re on the lawn with the feathers and the tar
Like the Little Brothers in the thirteenth century
They’ll tell you how it oughtta be
Like the Katharoi
In the third century
Let you know what you ought to be
In the fourth century
Poenitentiam agite
In the fourteenth century
They’ll tell you how it oughtta be
