O.C. Supertones – Little Man

Continuing the theme of alternative music choices, here are the O.C. Supertones with a great one — Little Man.  Lyrics below if you have a hard time keeping up like me.  If you ever heard of the style of music called “Ska” — and wondered “Wha?”  this is a taste.

Keep both my eyes transfixed on the prize, A high Rise to the blue skies my piece of the pie, There’s a hole in my heart that I know how to fill – that’s to light my cigarettes with a hundred dollar bill.

It’s all about cash flow, the California Dream.  To make the grade you gotta make the green — My friend I’m the champion I’ve no time for losers.  Never ask for nothin’  ’cause beggars can’t be choosers.

Lookin out for number one’s a full time occupation.  I’ll give to me myself and I my own salvation.  Some people try to tell me God can save me from my sin, but God can take a number and I’ll pencil him in. 

Busy oh so busy I got no time to search.  My Sunday’s are all booked I’ve got no time for church.  That’s for those poor souls, dry as a stone, God bless this child ’cause this child’s got His own.

Oh, let my pride fall down – I’m a Little Man.

He who gets the most toys and dies is the winner.  I’m livin the high life with lobster tail dinners.  My Lexus, my yacht, my gold chains and rings – these are a few of my favorite things.  But most of all I keep my billfold closest to my heart.  House decorated with million dollar works of art.  Roll with the bigwigs, they think I’m the man, but then I stop and think about how big I really am.

Mammon is an unforgiving God, I cast him away.  I live my life to God, not to get paid.  Money can’t save your soul don’t think I can.  I look to God and I feel like a little man.

    Aha! Indeed, someone had once tried to explain ska music to me, but I never heard a sample…until now. As a former trumpeter, I really appreciated the horn section in this tune. Very interesting!
