Burn Baby Burn

Daniel Johnston


A rich man and a poor man stood face to face
the poor man said to the rich man can I have a piece of cake
The rich man just laughed and threw his dog the crumbs
and the poor man stood hungry as the rich man's dog ate

The rich man died and went to hell
and the poor man died and went to heaven
And the rich man cried a night in pain
can I have a drink of water I'm going in an everlasting plain

The poor man stood ashore and sighed
there was no way to get to the other side
The rich man bit his lip and cried
he said I wish my soul could die

Well the rich man's dog died and went to heaven
because he was just a stupid animal he didn't know wrong from right
he was just a stupid animal

Well the poor man and the rich man's dog sat eating cake
with chocolate ice cream and soilent stake
And the rich man said for heaven's sake
and his skin burned in a fire lake

The rich man said maybe I was wrong
I guess I was just a low life scum
And I'll suffer now for evermore
and my suffering will never be done

I wish I had been a better man
he sat wishing
and he burned and he burned and he burned
and he wished he had been a better man
