Arrested Development – Ache'n For Acres lyrics

Yes, indedy sho-nuff needy
I got the feeling to stretch on out
My children are cryin' my elders are dying.
& me I'm relying on a check for rent
If I gotta be broke then ain't no joke
I'm moving to the country and buying some land
And I'll be alright if I can rest at night
Knowing my children got land to stand on.
Ache'n 4 acres plenty of acres
Money spent in rent ain't earning me cent.
Ain't gettin no caddy, no Benz, no jeep.
Until I got some $ for some land to keep
No more children crying instead they'll be running
Running free and wild in the heat of the sun.
'cause once I'm gone I wanna feel strong
That my children will go on, family land and all sayin'

I got some land to stand on no more ache'n 4 acres
No beggin for leftovers got some space of my own
I got grounds to raise on no more ache'n 4 acres
No more giving to takers got some land to leave on!

No more elders passin' without my kids askin'
Papa who's tombstones are those in the yard
Family gotta stay close all of us gotta stay close
Ache'n 4 acres 4 buildin' a nation.
Ain't about depending on government spendin'
Especially when the government's got a plan of their own
Separate from me-separate from U
Separate from most-in sync with a few.
Ache'n 4 acres plenty of acres
My grandpappa had em all but he lost em & he sold em
The cities were a growin' and grandpa's getting older
Little did he know that his land was valuable
Got land to stand on then U can stand up!
Stand up for your rights as a woman, as a man
Man O' man my choices expand
Ain't got me no money but I got me some land
