OW, A BAD SINGER’S PONY RENT – LYRICS


Verse:
You would have thought by now
that you would have all you need
But, you’ve become the epitome
of outlandish greed
When I think of all the ways
that money could be spent
But, ow, it all just went to pay for
a bad singer’s pony rent

Chorus:
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent
and I’m pretty sure that ain’t no compliment
you’ve torn down Wild Billy’s tattered tent
With your hand out seeking
your hand out seeking…
a bad singer’s pony rent
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent

Verse:
What happened to all your cherished
integral core beliefs
It seems you’ve gone and flushed them all
right out in the street
Together with everything
they said you represent
Flowing now down in the valley
Like a river of excrement

Chorus:
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent
and I’m pretty sure that ain’t no compliment
you’ve torn down Wild Billy’s tattered tent
With your hand out seeking
your hand out seeking…
a bad singer’s pony rent
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent

Verse:
The sheep lined up on Broadway
Because the boss let out the decree
The change was made when they found out
What was lying underneath the marquee
Now he’s a fallen star they say
no longer heaven sent
The streets of New York City
are paved with gold
and tarred with disillusionment

Chorus:
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent
and I’m pretty sure that ain’t no compliment
you’ve torn down Wild Billy’s tattered tent
With your hand out seeking
your hand out seeking…
a bad singer’s pony rent
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent


PEER AND PRO PRAISE FOR “OW, A BAD SINGER’S PONY RENT”


Absolutely Terrific. Besides the obvious lyrical talent and musicianship, Rich and his band have put their fingers on relevant and pressing current events with penetrating wit and gusto. I can hardly wait till their rock country pop sound hits the air waves around the country. – Rick A./RLB Fan

I am sure it will do well. Rich has the passion to reach the top. A good man who has not forgot where he came from. – Rev. Ricky Aldridge/RLB Fan

Really like the song. I have checked this band out on YouTube and I can’t help but think they are on their way up.
Sign me up! – Annie from AL/RLB Fan

Lynch crafted a good song with the help of Jay Pounders (former frontman of the band Crossfire Choir) and Nashville guitarist Nick Johnson lending a strong classic rock vibe. – New Jersey Stage
