The Lyrics

Some people think they have it so rough as they realise they can only afford the jumbo-sized pool as opposed the olympic-sized one.
It is demanding someone else wash their own plates
And it's the feeling that no-one else knows their pain
And it's the moment when their house count equals five
It is the lust for green, to hoard it, their desire
It is the power that resides in how they spend
It is the glower at the lower class, they send
It is the sheer denial in which they are stuck
"I am the underdog, the victim"? What a schmuck

Look at the bourgeois (yeah-eah), look at the bourgeois (oh-oh)
Look at the bourgeois with their heads stuck up their arse (right up their arse)
Look at the bourgeois (yeah-eah), look at the bourgeois (yeah-eah)
Look at the bourgeois turning life into a farce

It is the bounce-back with no help that is pure lies
It is the lawsuit over undersalted fries
It is the beautiful shade of red on their face
When you tell them you don't know who they are, such rage
They're such a pain when they don't wanna have to wait
In the same line as people who struggle to pay
It is the form of seething before they all say
"Where is your manager?!", same fit, they'll throw, hey!

Look at the bourgeois, look at the bourgeois (yeah-eah)
Look at the bourgeois (yeah-eah) with more cash than social arts (got no social arts)
Look at the bourgeois (at the bourgeois), look at the bourgeois (yeah-eah)
Look at the bourgeois who refuse to have a heart (oh-oh)

Bourgeois, bourgeois, bourgeois, bourgeois
Money is their life
Never been deprived, oh-oh
They've never been paid
In minimum wage

Look at the bourgeois, look at the bourgeois (oh-oh-oh-oh)
Look at the bourgeois thinking their life's been so hard (bourgeois)
Look at the bourgeois (bourgeois), look at the bourgeois (bourgeois)
Look at the bourgeois (bourgeois), be lost with no credit card (bourgeois)

Look at the bourgeois, look at the bourgeois (it is the act of gilding their whole damn estate)
Look at the bourgeois turning life into a farce (and it is reeling when there's cheap food on their plate)
Look at the bourgeois, look at the bourgeois (it is the bogus attempts they make to deny)
Look at the bourgeois with their heads stuck up their arse (the priv'lege that they breathe, always raises my ire)

Look at the bourgeois (bourgeois), look at the bourgeois (bourgeois)
Look at the bourgeois (bourgeois), keep your distance very far (bourgeois)
Look at the bourgeois (bourgeois), look at the bourgeois (bourgeois)
Look at the bourgeois (bourgeois), don't piss off their bodyguards (bourgeois, yeah-eah)

Bourgeois (oh, oh, oh), bourgeois (oh, oh, oh)
Bourgeois (oh-oh), bourgeois (poor in their heart)
Bourgeois (I said poor), bourgeois (very poor)
Bourgeois (crap, they heard me, yet misheard me), bourgeois
Come on

Poor? How dare you say I'm poor! I can afford a heart any time I want to! I just don't want to.
