What About Us
The Coaster Lyrics


He's got a house made of glass
Got his own swimming pool...what a gas
We've got a one-room shack
Five by six by the railroad track, well

What about us
What about us
Don't want to cause no fuss
But what about us
He's with a beautiful chick
Every night of the week, pretty slick
We're two poor hung up souls
Girls won't touch with a ten-foot pole, well

What about us
What about us
Don't want to cause no fuss
But what about us

He goes to eat at the Ritz
Big steaks, that's the breaks
We eat hominy grits
From a bag, what a drag

He's got a car made of suede
With a black leather top, got it made
If we go out on dates
We go in a box on roller skates, well

What about us
What about us
Don't want to cause no fuss
But what about us

He goes to eat at the Ritz
Big steaks, that's the breaks
We eat hominy grits
From a bag, what a drag

He's got a car made of suede
With a black leather top, got it made
If we go out on dates
We go in a box on roller skates, well

What about us
What about us
Don't want to cause no fuss
But what about us

What about us
What about us
But what about us

Like many recording artists then and now, The Coasters saw little of the money they made for the corporate machinery. I suppose this is why few people feel sorry for the ups and downs the industry has been going through lately, especially since technology and the internet make it possible for artists to bypass the corporation and market themselves directly to potential and existing audiences. What goes around comes around!

Paul McManus

The industry was developed as a way for highway robbers to work indoors.

Jason Us

The Coasters are fucking amazing!

You have great taste in music man, you're lucky in that respect, because most don't have any idea who The Coasters were. They were MAGIC.
