The Paul Allen Song

I have a huge amount of appreciation for Paul Allen, all he accomplished in his life, and all he gave, and I mean no disrespect. He was an old rock n' roller himself, and I like to think he'd enjoy this song.

Lyrics

I put in 15 hours of work today
and I'll work 17 tomorrow
I hope someday to earn sufficient pay
to buy my way out of this sorrow

and meanwhile...

Paul Allen owns an island
Paul Allen owns a yacht
I work every bit as hard as him
and what have I got?

Paul Allen owns the Seahawks
and the Sounders and the Blazers too
He pays those guys a billion dollars
just to play a game

I'm gone before my wife and kids arise
I get home after they've retired
but that's the sacrifice I have to make
or else I'm likely to get fired

and meanwhile...

Paul Allen owns an island
Paul Allen owns a 400-foot yacht

I work every bit as hard as him
and what have I got?
I got this song
I got this song
Yeah I got this song
Won't you sing along...

Paul Allen owns an island
Paul Allen owns a yacht

I work every bit as hard as him
and what have I got?

Paul Allen owns a museum
charges you and me 15 bucks a pop!
I work every bit as hard as him
and what have I got?
I got this song
I got this song

Yeah I got this song
It's three minutes long.
