about

Dollars. We all need them to survive, but the relentless pursuit of money can end up ruining our lives. Ironically, I spent all of my money recording this song.

lyrics

I know the money, the money is strong
Money talks and its arms are long
It sings you in with its sweet, sweet song
And then knocks you dead

I know the lines of credit make us blind
Trying to get what we won’t find,
And we dig ourselves just a little bit deeper

Deeper we fall in debt,
Deeper we fall and just keep writing those bouncing checks

Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll get the best of me
Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll be the death of me

Cash, got to make a splash,
Got to show up to the bash waving hundreds
If you ain’t got money then you ain’t got nothing

And I try, try to get what we won’t find,
But we’re all slaves to them dimes
It’s a heavy load that’s gonna break me down

Breaking me down to nothing,
Breaking me down to what’s left in my bank account

Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll get the best of me
Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll be the death of me

[My pockets ain’t deep and you know I need
Just a little relief from the money machine] x4

Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll get the best of me
Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll get the best of me
Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll be the death of me
Dollars, I got to get them dollars,
Been working hard for my dollars,
And them dollars’ll be the death of me
