"A man is born, he’s a man of means.
Then along come two, they got nothing but their jeans…(pun?)
They’ll have theirs, you’ll have yours, and I’ll have mine.
And together we’ll be fine!"
A rich man is born rich, a poor man is born poor. Let the rich have their riches and the poor have their poverty and it will all be okay.
That the what the lyrics are saying. The show didn’t have a rich white man passing his wealth to the poor in a general act of altruism. He took on two specific poor children from Harlem.
That in itself has unfortunate resonance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6ha7TK13_0
