(Kim Carnes/Donna Weiss)

Lightning strikes more than twice
Thru the clouds to break the ice
And show us something better
We all chose to compromise
We kill out skills we robotize
Acid waste draws kids and flies
And diamonds turn to granite

Number one
Money buys anything anytime
Number one
The absurd the sublime
Look at all the things we take for granted
Blood from the bandit

Look at all the things we take for granted
Blood from the bandit

Number one
Money buys anything anytime
