Lyrics

Of all of the people that I used to know Most never adjusted to the great big world I see them lurking in book stores Working for the Public Radio Carrying their babies around in a sack on their back Moving careful and slow (Chorus) It`s money that matters Hear what I say It`s money that matters In the USA All of these people are much brighter than I In any fair system they would flourish and thrive But they barely survive They eke out a living and they barely survive When I was a young boy, maybe thirteen I took a hard look around me and asked what does it mean? So I talked to my father, and he didn`t know And I talked to my friend and he didn`t know And I talked to my brother and he didn`t know And I talked to everybody that I knew

(Chorus) It`s money that matters Now you know that it`s true It`s money that matters Whatever you do Then I talked to a man lived up on the county line I was washing his car with a friend of mine He was a little fat guy in a red jumpsuit I said `You look kind of funny` He said `I know that I do` `But I got a great big house on the hill here And a great big blonde wife inside it And a great big pool in my backyard and another great big pool beside it Sonny it`s money that matters, hear what I say It`s money that matters in the USA It`s money that matters Now you know that it`s true It`s money that matters whatever you do`
