You hear it every few days in the news....an athlete gets a mega-million dollar deal...a Chief Executive gets multi-millions in a severance deal, after getting fired!
Executives gets gigantic bonuses after their business loses money...And then, if you turn a few pages in, you’ll see the real economic news...American economy still in doldrums, millions still unemployed...time running out...while others are getting paid millions....
...So what are the rest of us supposed to do if you can’t play football, if you can’t hit a home run, if you haven’t figured out how to make a million dollars on Wall Street or whatever other street you are on? The best we can do is to try hard to struggle through...
...And one more thing we can do is to vent our frustrations with a Hip-Hop song called “Big Bucks,” a song about pulling down big money.

The song was co-written in 1998 by Robert Barrows of San Mateo, California and Gary Warren, of Sacramento, California. It was originally released in 1999 to stations that played rap and hip-hop. “Big Bucks” and another song on the CD called “Run For Office,” a satire on politics, both got some airplay.
Some of the other lyrics to “Big Bucks” are along these lines:
How do they get in those jobs with the big bucks? “How did they get there?” Who, or what did they know?”
The song goes on in this vein and then it ends with the lines:
“In the game of money, competition is tough...Keep going for your dreams until you find Big Bucks, Big Bucks.” Followed by... “I need money, Big Bucks, I need money.”
“Don’t we all?” says Barrows, too bad I can’t play football.”
“Maybe I’ll make my millions if millions of people download these songs?” he adds.
“And maybe someday, somebody will also buy some of my sculpture? Maybe they’ll buy the patent rights to the video tombstone I invented, and maybe they’ll even publish my book, ‘Cemetery of Lies,’ he continues...and maybe I’ll figure out how to make big bucks, someday, just like the song.”
Barrows is also the inventor of a video tombstone called the Video Enhanced Gravemarker (U.S. Patent #7,089,495)www.barrows.com/
