about

Angered by the banking industry, I decided to write this song.

lyrics

Everybody wants my money.
But there’s a thing they don’t understand
That I ain’t got any money.
I had to give it all to the man.

Now I ain’t as broke as I ought to be,
But man, It's getting there.
The bank even charge me for depositing money,
And hell that just ain’t fair.

If at nine I get myself some paper.
They'll be holding up their hands at ten.
And as I watch it all dissolve like vapor,
It starts all over again.

Everybody wants my money.
But there’s a thing they don’t understand
That I ain’t got any money.
I had to give it all to the man.

Some politician said he's cutting subsidies,
If he ever gets his way,
But I ain’t ever got any subsidies,
So I don’t know what the hell he’s saying.

The people on the high floors they're the real cheats,
‘Cause boy they’re getting paid.
They'll just keep sucking that money teat,
As I just slave away.

Everybody wants my money.
But there’s a thing they don’t understand
That I ain’t got any money.
I had to give it all to the man.
