Manfred Mann's Earth Band – Banquet lyrics

Some get the gravy, some get the gristle
Some get the marrow bone
Some get nothing though there's plenty to spare
Some watch the paint peel, some watch their kids grow
Some watch their stocks and bonds
Waiting for that big deal American Dream
Took my dream down by the sea
Sailing yachts and lobster pots and sunshine
Logs and sails and shell oil pails
Down where the waterskiers glide
Some turn to Elvis, some turn to Africa
Some turn to rambling round
For a clean sky and a drinking stream
Who let the greedy in ?
Who left the needy out ?
Who made the salty sea ?
Tell them we're hungry for a sweeter fare
Took my dream down by the sea
Sailing yachts and lobster pots and sunshine
Logs and sails and shell oil pails
Down where the waterskiers glide
Some get the gravy, some get the gristle
Some get the marrow bone
Some get nothing though there's plenty to spare
Some watch the paint peel, some watch their kids grow
Some watch their stocks and bonds
Waiting for that big deal American Dream
