Story behind the song
It seems the rich have been getting richer for the past few decades, while the middle class getting poorer. In today's economic conditions, it's a game of survival for a lot of us, while ceos, athletes, movie and rock stars, rap stars etc. etc. are living the life. It was written back in the seventies, and only recorded recently. Considering the protests across the globe, seems a lot of people are feeling what I did then. This is a love song first of all, girl sees the rich's lifestyles and dreams about being one of them. Doesn't everybody?
Lyrics
SLIGHTLY TAINTED WORLD (music and lyrics by Evan Paul Kozaris) Verse 1 spoken (We were watching this TV show on movie stars the other night, I was watching my girl, from the side, I knew what she was thinking, I said,) I know you want to be that someone, that very special girl, Wear pretty clothes and drive a brand new car, Taking trips all around the world. Why can't we bring it out in the open, or drop a subtle hint, The little money we make goes nowhere, Drown our sorrow and pay our rent. Chorus In this Slightly Tainted World, In this Slightly Tainted World, In this Slightly Tainted World, We are living day to day, Verse 2 spoken (We talked about it, and I was right, exactly what she was thinking, I said, Baby, it's alright to dream about it, even if reality says, it may never come true, I said... You're such a good hearted woman, and you work harder than a man, Oh, one of these days I'm gonna make it up to you, Gonna work, as hard as I can... Chorus, In this Slightly Tainted World, in this Slightly Tainted World, In a Slightly Tainted World, we are living day to day. solo Verse 3 Things got to change for the better, that's what the common people say, Oh but to me it seems to go forever, in this Slightly Tainted World, Chorus, In this Slightly Tainted World, In this Slightly Tainted World, In this Slightly Tainted World, we are living day to day, In this Slightly Tainted World, In this Slightly Tainted World, In a Slightly Tainted World, we are living day to day..... Ending, spoken, Such is life in a Slightly Tainted World I guess, It can be so cruel to some who don't have it, and yet, so good to the ones that do, You know something baby, one day we'll have everything, I promise you, I'm gonna work really hard, you know why? Cause we have LOVE... And that matters for more than anything in this world.
