Harry Belefonte's Jamaica Farewell (sort of)


Recommended Posts

The idea for this one came as a response to all the article about how the pension system is broken, 4019k) don't work, etc.

we all know it's is never the participant's fault, as Harry Belefonte clearly explains in Jamaica Farewell

Along the way I will squander my pay

For that fun that comes daily on the mountain top

I'll take expensive trips on sailing ships

and I'll keep spendin' and spendin' and never stop

Now its sad to say

I'm in a four-oh-one K

I'm not deferring or puttin' away

My heart will be down

When 65 comes around

Because I'll have so little cash left to spend in town

Sounds of laughter there everywhere

And the dancing girls oh they sway to and fro

I must declare that my heart is there

Though my retirement savings they are real low

Now its sad to say

I'm in a four-oh-one K

I'm not deferring or puttin' away

My heart will be down

When 65 comes around

Because I'll have so little cash left to spend in town

An S-U-V and theres plenty of beer

And the poor gas mileage I dont really fear

I spend a lot on the things that are nice

And my promise is that I will save next year

Now its sad to say

I'm in a four-oh-one K

I'm not deferring or puttin' away

My heart will be down

When 65 comes around

because I'll have so little cash left to spend in town

My heart will be down

When 65 comes around

because I'll have so little cash left to spend in town
