Lynn Anderson – Too Many Dollars Not Enough Sense lyrics

This world is filled with many kinds of people
Most of them so poor they can hardly pay the rent
Then there's another kind lots of funny people too many dollars not enough sense
[ harmonica ]
Rich man's son he goes away to college he has such fun no work and all play
He's not there for gettin' any knowledge he'll have his daddy bus'ness some day
Rich boy fails and daddy wonders what he did chewing his nails all nervous and tense
Never figures out that the trouble was he gave the kid
Too many dollars not enough sense
[ harmonica ]
Poor little poor girl young and so beautuful marries old man with foot in the grave
Marries him for money now she's gonna spend it all
Gonna throw away every dollar he saved
Man wakes up one morning all useless pretty girl gone and money all spent
Was his own fault for turning her loose with too many dollars not enough sense
[ harmonica ]
Indian live all life on reservation all he knows is sweatin' and toil
White man come and dig on reservation poke around and bring 'em up oil
Indian rich now gotta have a Cadillac him buy five and a Mercedes Benz
Take to reservation park 'em all back to back too many dollars not enough sense
This world is filled with many kinds of people...
Too many dollars not enough sense
