Paul McCartney & Wings - Richard Cory Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town,
  • With political connections to spread his wealth around.
  • Born into society, a banker's only child,
  • He had everything a man could want: power, grace, and style.
  • But I work in his factory
  • And I curse the life I'm living
  • And I curse my poverty
  • And I wish that I could be,
  • Oh, I wish that I could be,
  • Oh, I wish that I could be
  • Richard Cory.
  • The papers print his picture almost everywhere he goes:
  • Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show.
  • And the rumor of his parties and the orgies on his yacht!
  • Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he's got.
  • But I work in his factory
  • And I curse the life I'm living
  • And I curse my poverty
  • And I wish that I could be,
  • Oh, I wish that I could be,
  • Oh, I wish that I could be
  • Richard Cory.
  • He freely gave to charity, he had the common touch,
  • And they were grateful for his patronage and thanked him very much,
  • So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:
  • "Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head."
  • But I work in his factory
  • And I curse the life I'm living
  • And I curse my poverty
  • And I wish that I could be,
  • Oh, I wish that I could be,
  • Oh, I wish that I could be
  • Richard Cory.
