Hey, wait a minute something just ain't right hey, wait a minute
Something's just not fair
I was supposed to win the lottery
I'm supposed to be a millionaire
I'm supposed to be a worldwide tourist
With lots of equity and life insurance
Yes I'm supposed to be a gold card member
Rubbin' elbows with the big time spenders
I'm supposed to be a wealthy man
But all I've got are blistered hands
Hey, wait a minute!

Hey, wait a minute
There's got to be a better way
I'm workin' twice as hard but gettin' no richer
Than I was yesterday
I'm supposed to drive a big mercedes
Live in a mansion full of naked ladies
I'm supposed to own my own casino
Be a superstar like sammy, frank and dino
Some day I'm gonna be a big success
And tell my boss to kiss my ass

Hey, wait a minute
Something must be wrong
I'm supposed to be dining on caviar
And drinking dom perignon
Yes I'm supposed to have open invitations
To classy country clubs all across the nation
Yes I'm supposed to have jewelry and diamonds
And a fifty foot yacht I can sail around the islands
I'm supposed to be so carefree
But all I've got is misery
Hey, wait a minute
Something's just not right
