Money

Money – I hear the cry across the city,

Money- I hear the cry across the room.

I’m standing on the floor

Amongst all these men

And not one amongst them

Has sufficient Money

 

Money – I hear the echo across the day

Money – I hear the echo across the night

I’m sitting at my desk

Amongst all these women

And not one amongst them

Has sufficient coin.

 

Money – I hear the call across the desert

Money – I hear the call across the sea

I’m lying on the sand

Amongst all these tourists

And not one amongst them

Has sufficient funds.

 

Money – I hear the shout across the decades

Money – I hear the shout across the months

I’m walking over history

Amongst all these aging people

And not one amongst them

Has sufficient coin

 

We all get paid Chickenfeed

We all want more gold

We all want more than what we have

 

In our rush to get assets

In our rush to live.

We forget that they once lived without dough
