You go to work, work hard all day
At the end of the week, you collect your pay
That's just where it's at
It's as simple as that
You pay your bills the best that you can
But the rising cost sure hurts a family man
While the rich man gets fat
it's as simple as that
And the money goes so fast it ain't funny
Your mind's made up to get that house on the hill
But you just don't know if you ever will
Because you can't get the cash
It's as simple as that
Cause the man from the bank, he won't give you a loan
Without putting a morgage on all that you own
A tit for a tat
It's a simple as that
And the money goes so fast it ain't funny
Before you know it the kids are all grown
And married off with kids of their own
And it's all in the past
It's as simple as that
You've reached the autumn of your life
And all that's left is you and your wife
And a dog and a cat
It's as simple as that
And the money goes so fast it ain't funny
