lyrics

Sitting alone, me and TV
I feel like I've done something wrong
I watch all the news
And some cartoons
But as per usual there's nothing on

To think about life is very mundane
What is there left to think about?
My mind's getting fat, like my belly
And all my thoughts are surrounded by money

When we go wrong
Isn't there more to life?
I need a hand full of green dollar bills
So I can sleep at night
It's that old green snake in the middle of the road

Supposed to go to college to earn more money
Education's got nothing to do with it
Supposed to read the papers to stay informed
Because if you don't you'll have nothing to talk about at dinner
And nothing to talk about at dinner
Well that's sad!

When we go wrong
Isn't there more to life?
I need a hand full of green dollar bills
So I can sleep at night
It's that old green snake in the middle of the road

If you look back
Into your life
What is the worst day you'll find?
For me it's the day
That money became
The only reason that I'm alive

It is the truth
That I fear
It's the truth
That I fear

Where did I go wrong?
Isn't there more to life?
I need a hand full of green dollar bills
So I can sleep at night

The old green snake in the middle of the road
It's all about the money
