Aerosmith
Eat the Rich
Original Translation of Slang

Well I woke up this morning
On the wrong side
of the bed

And how I got to thinking
About all the things you said
About ordinary people
And how they make you sick
And if callin' names kicks back on you
Then I hope this does the trick

woke up... on the wrong side of the bed woke up in a bad mood




callin' names calling people bad names kicks back on you comes back to cause you trouble
does the trick works

'Cause I'm sick of your complaining
About how many bills
And I'm sick of all your bitching
'Bout your poodles and your pills
And I just can't see no humor
About your way of life
And I think I can do more for you
With this here fork and knife

(Chorus)
Eat The Rich
There's only one thing that they are good for
Eat The Rich
Take one bite now - come back for more
Eat The Rich
I gotta get this off my chest
Eat The Rich
Take one bite now - spit out the rest

'Cause because

bitching complaining
'Bout about poodles because this dog is French, it's considered elegant/snobbish by Americans no humor any humor

So I called up my head shrinker
And I told him what I'd done
He said you best go on a diet
Yeah, I hope you have some fun
And a don't go burst the bubble
On rich folks who get rude
'Cause you won't get in no trouble
When you eat that kind of food

Now they're smoking up their junk bonds
And then they go get stiff
And they're dancing in the yacht club
With Muff and uncle Biff
But there's one good thing that happens

I gotta get this off my chest I have got to reveal this



head shrinker psychiatrist



burst the bubble destroy the ego

no trouble any trouble


junk bonds a bond that offers a high percentage of profit, but also has a high risk of losing money stiff drunk

Muffy (female), Biff (male) stereotypical nicknames of rich people in the Northeast of the U.S.

When you toss your pearls to swine
Their attitudes may taste like shit
But go real good with wine

Chorus
toss your pearls to swine give something valuable to someone worthless (reference to Matthew 7:6 in the Bible: "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.") taste like shit taste bad
Believe in all the good things
That money just can't buy
Then you won't get no bellyache
From eating humble pie
I believe in rags to riches
Your inheritance won't last
So take your Gray Poupon my friend
And shove it up your ass

Chorus


bellyache stomach ache
eating humble pie admitting that you are wrong
in rags to riches that poor people can become rich (cliché)

Gray Poupon a mustard advertised as being preferred by rich snobs shove it up your ass literally, "put it forcefully in your anus." However, this expression is generally used alone to mean "I hate you, worthless person."
