Lyrics of Rich Girl

You're a rich girl, and you've gone too far
'Cause you know it don't matter anyway
You can rely on the old man's money
You can rely on the old man's money
It's a bitch girl but it's gone too far
'Cause you know it don't matter anyway
Say money but it won't get you too far,
Get you too far

Você é uma menina rica, e que você tenha ido longe demais
Porque você sabe que isso não importa de qualquer maneira
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
É uma menina cadela mas ela foi longe demais
Porque você sabe que isso não importa de qualquer maneira
Diga dinheiro, mas ele não vai chegar muito longe,
Começá-lo muito longe


And don't you know, don't you know
That it's wrong to take what is given you
So far gone, on your own
You can get along if you try to be strong
But you'll never be strong
'Cause

E você não sabe, você não sabe
Isso é errado do que é dado a você
Tão longe, em seu próprio
Você pode se dar bem se você tentar ser forte
Mas você nunca vai ser forte
Porque


You're a rich girl, and you've gone too far
'Cause you know it don't matter anyway
You can rely on the old man's money
You can rely on the old man's money
It's a bitch girl and it's gone too far
'Cause you know it don't matter anyway
Say money but it won't get you too far,
Get you too far

Você é uma menina rica, e que você tenha ido longe demais
Porque você sabe que isso não importa de qualquer maneira
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
É uma menina cadela e ela foi longe demais
Porque você sabe que isso não importa de qualquer maneira
Dizem que o dinheiro, mas não vai chegar muito longe,
Começá-lo muito longe


High and dry, out of the rain
It's so easy to hurt others when you can't feel pain
And don't you know that a love can't grow
'Cause there's too much to give, 'cause you'd rather live
For the thrill of it all, oh

Alto e seco, fora da chuva
É tão fácil machucar os outros quando você não pode sentir dor
E você não sabe que o amor não pode crescer
Porque há muito para dar, porque você sim viveria
Pela emoção de tudo isso, oh


You're a rich girl, and you've gone too far
'Cause you know it don't matter anyway
You can rely on the old man's money
You can rely on the old man's money
It's a bitch girl and it's gone too far
'Cause you know it don't matter anyway
Say money but it won't get you too far, (3x)
Get you too far

Você é uma menina rica, e que você tenha ido longe demais
Porque você sabe que isso não importa de qualquer maneira
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
É uma menina cadela e ela foi longe demais
Porque você sabe que isso não importa de qualquer maneira
Diga o dinheiro, mas não vai chegar muito longe, (3x)
Começá-lo muito longe


And you say
You can rely on the old man's money
You can rely on the old man's money
You're a rich girl, a rich girl
Oh, you're a rich rich girl yeah
Say money but it won't get you too far,
Oh, get ya too far

E você diz
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
Você pode contar com o dinheiro do velho
Você é uma menina rica, uma menina rica
Oh, você é uma menina rica rico sim
Diga dinheiro, mas ele não vai chegar muito longe,
Ah, vai te pegar longe demais

'Rich Girl' is a song by Daryl Hall and John Oates. On March 26, 1977, it became their first (of six) number one singles on 'Billboard' Hot 100 chart. The single originally appeared on the 1976 album 'Bigger Than Both of Us'.

The song's lyrics are about a spoiled girl who can rely on her parents' money to do whatever she wants. The song was rumored to be about the then-scandalous newspaper heiress Patty Hearst. In fact, the title character in the song is based on a spoiled heir to a fast-food chain who was an ex-boyfriend of Daryl Hall's girlfriend, Sara Allen. 'But you can't write, 'You're a rich boy' in a song, so I changed it to a girl,' Hall told Rolling Stone. Hall elaborated on the song in an interview with American Songwriter: 'Rich Girl” was written about an old boyfriend of Sara’s [Allen] from college that she was still friends with at the time. His name is Victor Walker. He came to our apartment, and he was acting sort of strange. His father was quite rich. I think he was involved with some kind of a fast-food chain. I said, “This guy is out of his mind, but he doesn’t have to worry about it because his father’s gonna bail him out of any problems he gets in.” So I sat down and wrote that chorus. [Sings] “He can rely on the old man’s money/he can rely on the old man’s money/he’s a rich guy.” I thought that didn’t sound right, so I changed it to “Rich Girl.” He knows the song was written about him.' Several years later, Hall read an interview with David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam killer, in which Berkowitz claimed that 'Rich Girl' had motivated him to murder (though interestingly, the song was not released until after the Son of Sam murders had already begun, casting doubts on that suggestion). Hall & Oates later reflected this disturbing fact in the lyrics of the song 'Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear Voices)' on the album 'Voices'. 'Rich Girl' has been covered by Nina Simone on her 1978 LP 'Baltimore', by Australian R&B singer Selwyn on his 2002 CD 'Meant To Be', by Everclear on their 2008 cover compilation 'The Vegas Years', and by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes on their 2008 album 'Have Another Ball!'. Rap group Young Gunz also sampled the song on their debut album Tough Luv. Hip hop group Down With Webster heavily sampled the song in their 2009 hit 'Rich Girl$.'
