Ain't it kinda funny that there's always been money,
Changin' hands all over the world,
I always thought the best things in life were free,
Now, I may be square, but it don't seem fair,
What there pickin' in this pocket of mine,
And a dollar for a donut ain't to far down the line

Chorus:
What's the story, old glory? ,
How come your turning green? ,
In the land of milk and honey, you've got to have money,
I bet you know what I mean
Even though we're willin, we can't have any children
Cause there ain't nobody home night or day,
Working eighty hours and still too many bills to pay,
Well, I got my car but I can't get far,
On a dollar's worth of gasoline,
I even give up my subscription to rolling stone magazine

Chorus:
So, what's the story, old glory,
How come your turning green? ,
In the land of milk and honey, you've got to have money,
I bet you know what I mean
Chorus:
What's the story, old glory? ,
How come your turning green? ,
In the land of milk and honey, you've got to have money,
I bet you know what I mean
Now ain't it a sin how the japanese yen,
Had driven down our dollar bill,
It'd gettin' harder to find somethin' made in the you. S. Of a.,
So ride your kawasaki and eat your teriyaki,
I'll tell you what they're gonna do,
It won't be long till they're buying me up and you

Chorus:
So, what's the story, old glory,
How come your turning green? ,
In the land of milk and honey, you've got to have money,
I bet you know what I mean
Chorus:
What's the story, old glory? ,
How come your turning green? ,
In the land of milk and honey, you've got to have money,
I bet you know what I,
I bet you know what I,
I bet you know what I mean
