Hazel O'connor – Men Of Good Fortune lyrics
{Words & Music: Lou Reed}

Men of good fortune
Often cause empires to fall
While men of poor beginnings
Often can't do anything at all
The rich son waits for his father to die
While the poor just sit there and cry
And me... Ah...
I just don't care at all

Men of good fortune
Very often can't do a thing
While men of poor beginnings
Often can't do anything
At heart they try to act like a man
Handle things the best way they can
They have no rich daddy to fall back on

Men of good fortune
Men of poor beginnings
Men of good fortune
Men of poor beginnings

Men of good fortune
Often cause empires to fall
While men of poor beginnings
Often can't do anything at all
It takes money to make money they say
But look at the Fords, hey didn't they start that way
Anyway... Ha...
It makes no difference to me

Men of good fortune
Men of poor beginnings [Repeat to Fade]
