Money Sucks

Sometimes I wonder what would life be like
if I burned all of my money would I see the light?
now I know that sounds absurd,
but just take me word for word, line by line
one verse at a time
Some people think that since they're born in wealth
that they're entitled to entitle my wealth for themselves
They'll say: we're the underprivileged class
Well, you can kiss my ass, say goodbye
I wonít even try
Tell me what it's like, living 6-figures for life
with a fancy car, and a fat cigar, and a top-shelf drink every night
Tell me what it's like
this is the Money Sucks sing-along song

Some people tell me I could be somebody
Nobody told me that you need some money
if I don't have a job then what am I becoming
don't you know I'm only doing music for the money

How come we pay people to misrepresent us?
If the children are the future why the fuck are we in debt?
Student loans will make me sweat, and I canít afford my rent
And somehow Iím supposed to follow dreams
yeah right - go fuck yourself
fuck
Tell me what it's like, living 6-figures for life
with a fancy car, and a fat cigar, and a top-shelf drink every night
Tell me what it's like
this is the Money Sucks sing-along song

Weíre singing shit fuck dammit dammit
Weíll never understand it
I keep on catching yellow just before
the red light, slam the breaks
on my life again, itís too late
to start over and
a dangerous beginning will inevitably end
So Iíll write a love song
sharks in the sky felt so wrong
and Iím just a guy with problems
but I need someone to sway with
to the rhythm and blues
these brown leather shoes donít match my
passion for writing new beats
thatís why the whole worldís laughing at me,

among other reasons, of course,
but of all the critics, Iím the worst
and I try to live by a single verse
Rule #32, my friends: remember the little things
Iím a renegade
and I break my own rules anyway
Iím on a planetary escapade
to write crappy songs like Pimp for a Day

still singing shit fuck dammit dammit
Iíll never know why
these are odd times to be alive
we need a suburban superhero
but Iím just another zero
just like the money in my bank
cause money sucks and I need a break

Tell me what it's like, living 6-figures for life
with a fancy car, and a fat cigar, and a top-shelf drink every night
Tell me what it's like
this is the Money Sucks sing-along song
this is the Money Sucks sing-along song
this is the Money Sucks sing-along song
this is the Money Sucks sing-along song
