I know there's cash in the mattress
I’m gonna burn it tonight
I've had my fill of semantics
Time now for fight or flight

She’s got her hooks in the heart meat

Knows she can tear it apart
And he's got his hand in the pocket
So they're all getting what they want
(Ha hah)

Manikin walk with a stilt leg
Woman can stand on her head
Coins come clanking on hard wood
Into the piggy bank under the bed

She’s got a right to save up
She’s gonna burn it instead
Manikin walk with a stilt leg
Into the piggy bank under the bed

A little money and a lie that we can buy
That is all
It’s all we have to live for

Saving up for some castle in the sky
That is all
Well it’s all we've ever had

Got a piece of mail this evening
You never would believe what it said
Daddy left me all of his fortune
Daddy's fortune’s all in his head

Barely made it into your twenties
Dollars never made any sense
Daddy left me all of his fortune
Daddy's fortune’s all but spent

A little money and a lie that we can buy
That is all
It’s all we have to live for

Saving up for some big shiny thing
Well that is all...

GO!

I don't wanna find
That I'm a Dollar Swine
Crooked tail and hooves from hell
And a taste for the poison wine
I said, “my god! ”

A little money and lie that we can buy
That is all... yeah!
