about

For anyone that is starting a business or project and finds that no one cares about them or wants to help. Don't worry. I promise you as soon as you have the slightest bit of success all of those same people will be right there to lend you a hand.

lyrics

I am self made I am an entrepreneur
Ready to get paid, just trying to open these doors
and so I reach out to everybody I know
but in the end, can't count on no one
they've got dreams of their own
so by my bootstraps, I gotta pull myself up
I'm thinking perhaps they'll re-appear when I'm done
out of the woodwork, they will be coming in droves
carrying unpunched tickets in soft hand
cause thats how it goes

Nobody wants to help you build a railroad
but everybody wants to jump on the train

It's that old gag
that's always been around
carry my own bag
and I can't put it down
and then it seems that after i lighten the load
everyone want to take a free ride on my railroad

Nobody wants to help you build a railroad
but everybody wants to jump on the train

There's no turning back
I gotta pick up the slack
it's just a matter of fact
I'm staying on track

Nobody wants to help you build a railroad
but everybody wants to jump on the train
