All right
Here it comes

Well I can tell you for the money
The simple life honey is good
Uh-huh
Well if you ask me how you made it
Secure life, baby, you should
Oh, yes you should
Cause if you're doing all the best that you can
But you're still runnin' just as fast as the man says
Well I can tell you for the money
The simple life honey is good
Uh-huh, now
Yes it's good

Now when you're movin' to the city
You worry on your mental health
Yes you do, now
Oh, you gentlemen and ladies
You've got to be good to yourself
Mm-hmm
So get yourself into a ranch-style home
When the neighbor's never more than a stone's throw
Well I can tell you for the money
The simple life honey is good
Yes it is
Yes it's good

That's right
Yeah

But oh, no
All the money
Still you just can't please everybody
How bad do
Do you want it?
Cause the money
It looks so good, good, good
Ohh

Yeah
Whoo!
Yeah

So now you're chasin' the American dream
Just like the dollar's gonna make everybody scream
But I can tell you for the money
The simple life sure looks good
That's right, now
Yes it's good
Oh yeah

Oh, no
All the money
Looks so good, good, good
To everybody
How bad do
Do you want it?
Cause the money
It looks so good, good, good

Now there's a whole lot of faking
And takin'
And shakin' my hand
And when they tell you they love ya
They love ya like a one night stand
Mm-hmm
So if you're playin' in a rock and roll band
But still you're doing whatever the man says
Well I can tell you for the money
The simple life honey is good
That's right
Yes it's good

Uh-huh
Take care
