Money Talks
iTunes link or CD Baby link
He took the gig to make the cash
It was just that simple
And get some bill collectors off his back
The line of work was not his first choice
If he could make it
But I guess he possessed the skills
That others lacked

So he takes his dreams
And puts them in a bag
And stores them in his dusty garage
With all his other junk
That he knows he'll never get around to

Money talks all around the world

He does his job like some machine
And with about as much feeling
His feelings he has trained himself to ignore
'Cause if he could take them to a bank
They wouldn't be worth a single dollar
And the dollar is all the hell he's living for

So he takes his dreams
And puts them in a bag
And stores them in his dusty garage
With all his other junk
And his cheap plastic memorabilia

Money talks all around the world... (x3)

He took the gig to make the cash
And that's just what it got him
That's just what it got him
