Make More Money
 
Lyrics
VERSE
When the kids go off to school
When your wife wants a swimmin' pool
When the collector comes to call
And you're about to take a fall
Just do what my daddy told me: make more money

CHORUS
To make more money is the only way
All these bills will ever get paid
More money's what I need now
The only thing I need to know is how to make more money

VERSE
When the days start to get rough
'Cause your check won't buy enough
Time seems to be runnin' out
And your head's all full of doubt
Just do what my daddy told me: make more money

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
When your kids are havin' kids
And your wife says she is, too
When the mortgage company's takin' bids
And you're wonderin' what's left for you
Just do what my daddy told me: make more money

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

BRIDGE
When I was just a kid, my daddy told me
That when I became a man, I'd understand
Well, he told me once, and he told me twice
I never, ever thought that he was right
But I was wrong 'cause now I need to know how

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS
