"Billionaires In Outer Space"


From our toilet paper roll telescopes,
we watch the billionaires in outer space
First Richard Branson, and then Jeff Bezos
Elon Musk says he is on his way

I
f I should ever hit the Powerball
or score some moolah in some other way,
I would not shoot for the stars at all
Shit, I wouldn't even hop a plane

I'd put my dough into a bakery
Powder some doughnuts, ice some cakes
I've never had much luck in lottery,
but you can't win unless you play

I've got two feet on terra firma
I've got two eyes, wide and amazed
And just in case you hadn't heard-a,
there's billionaires in outer space
