He said hold a dollar bill up to the mirror
And I'll show you something funny
It's only a fast buck, but
It's so hard to make that kind of money.

Now it's hard to get serious when the joker
Is laughing
And by now the joker is wild
It's hard to keep laughing when a rich man's
Reflection
Looks like a gun that's gonna smile
What's going on, I ask you
What's going on, can you see?
What's going on, I ask you and
Who's coming on, is it you or me?

Coming on while it's still soft and warm
Burn it dry before the fiery storm
Sing it now while you still have a song
Grab on now while you're still feeling strong.

How long, how long would you like it
How long, how long will it be
How long, how long can we take it?
How long before we take it back, you and me
Think fast.

I was thinking that I should be singing along
Think fast I think he's coming thru
Think fast, he thinks he's running you
I was thinking that I should be singing along
Think fast, he thinks he's coming in
Think fast, I think he's wearing thin
I was thinking that I should be singing along
Think fast, he's taking all your time
Think fast, you know he's out of line
But who cares, you know you can, you will, you
Know you can.

Sing it now while you still
Sing it now while you still
Sing it now while you still have a song.
