Simply Red – Money$ Too Tight (To Mention) lyrics

I been laid off from work
My rent is due
My kids all need
Brand new shoes

So I went to the bank
To see what they could do
They said son - looks like bad luck
Got-a hold on you

[Chorus:]
Money's too tight to mention
I can't get an un-em-ploy-ment ex-ten-sion
Money's too tight to mention

I went to my brother
To see what he could do -
He said bro-ther like to help you
But I'm unable to
So I called on my fa-ther fa-ther
Oh, mighty fa-ther
He said

[Chorus:]
Money's too tight to mention
Oh mo-ney mo-ney mo-ney mon-ey
Mo-ney's too tight to mention
I can't even qual-i-fy for my pension

We talk a-bout Reaganomics
Oh lord down in the con-gress
They're passing all kinds - of bills
From down cap-it-ol hill - (we've tried them)

[Chorus:]
Money's too tight to mention
[Spoken] cut-back!
Mo-ney mo-ney mo-ney mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' 'bout the dollar bill
and that old man that's over the hill
Now what are we all to do
When the mon-ey's got a hold on you?

Mo-ney's too tight to mention
Oh mon-ey mon-ey mon-ey mon-ey
Mo-ney's too tight to mention
Dinero - mon-ey oh yeah
I'm talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
I'm talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
I'm talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
I'm talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey

Yeah, I'm talkin' Ronnie
Yeah, I'm talkin' Ronnie

I'm talking about Ronnie, Ronnie (x3)

Did the earth move for ya, Nancy? (x4)
Yeah, I'm talkin', Nancy
Yeah, I'm talkin', Nancy
