My buddy Steve had a real good plan
A thousand dollar phone in the palm of your hand
Picture of an apple right there on the back
Why didn’t I think of that

Hanging with the King down in Memphis Tennessee
Said it’s all about the hips and I’m inclined to agree
Makin’ so much money he can’t even keep track
Why didn’t I think of that

Why didn’t I think of that
Wouldn’t be where I’m at
Could’ve been a real fat cat
Why didn’t I think of that

Talking to the Donald and I don’t mean the duck
P. O. T. U. S. now doesn’t that suck
Made all this dough without payin’ any tax
Why didn’t I think of that

Why didn’t I think of that
Wouldn’t be where I’m at
Could’ve been a real fat cat
Why didn’t I think of that

Bring on the limo the babes and bling
If only I could think of the next big thing
A waterproof toaster or air conditioned shoes
How the heck can I lose

Met the Kardashians at their place in the hills
Asked ‘em how on earth they’re keepin’ up with these bills
Told me people pay ‘em to look cute and relax
Why didn’t I think of that

Why didn’t I think of that
Wouldn’t be where I’m at
Could’ve been a real fat cat
Why didn’t I think of that
