Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings – People Don’t Get What They Deserve

When I was a child I believed what they told me (every word)
To each one shall come what each one shall earn
And if I worked hard nobody could hold me (hold me)
And cheaters will fail, that’s what they all learned (cheaters never prosper)
There is a man who is born with a fortune
A hard days work he’s never done (livin’ on easy street)
He lives from the sweat of other men’s labor
As he sips his champagne and lays in the sun

Money don’t follow sweat
Money don’t follow brains
Money don’t follow deeds of peace
(People don’t get what they deserve) x2

There is a man who lives like a saint
He works from daybreak to late in the night
He’s never stolen, he’s never been lazy (not a day in his life)
To feed his children is always a fight (work work work)
I try to do right by all of god’s children
I work very hard for all I could afford
But I don’t pretend for one single moment
That what I get is my just reward

Money don’t follow sweat
Money don’t follow brains
Money don’t follow deeds of peace
(People don’t get what they deserve) x13
