The Things We Do For Money

the things we do for money, it’s enough to make you think
how we sell some one a bad used car then we go out and buy him a drink
the way we laugh about it when we tally it up on the line
the things we do for money come back to haunt you some times

the things we do for money ain’t funny, no sir
in fact they’re kind of sad
the things we do for money honey get on your nerves
they made the good go bad
they made the good go bad

workin’ for the time clock boss, punchin’ in and out of that daily grind
runnin’ with the rat race, blood pressure over-time
somebody’s gettin’ richer and they’re dangling a silvery key
the things we do for money make you older than you oughtta be

you can make it if you got it already, if you don’t you gotta beg and borrow
whatever you sign away today you can refinance tomorrow
maybe take a pound of your flesh, maybe leave a little scar
the things we do for money, well they can be kind of bizarre

lookin’ up to the rich and famous, like you seen ‘em on the big TV
fallin’ in love with a game show host, gettin’ all that stuff for free
swallowing your self respect, coughin’ up a promissory not
the things we do for money, they get caught in your throat

you can cash in on your good looks if you show a little skin
you can bait ’em with a fish hook and you can reel ‘em in
it’s worth it if it’s workin’ and it’s workin’ if the price is right
the things we do for money keep you up at night

the things we do for money they can be kind of extreme
they can break your heart, make a nightmare out of your dream
they say the root of all evil is buried in a hole in the ground
the things we do for money bring everybody down
