Somebody Else's Money
We can buy that mansion on the hill We'll fill it up until it's filled We'll buy a big black cadillac And we'll keep an extra one in the back We'll sit home just listening To the sounds of the winds when they're breaking And we can buy that diamond ring And just about any other thing With somebody else's money We can buy you that flower garden With every rose that's ever risen With a blanket and a safety pin We'll keep away all the boogie men And we can buy you that swing Swing through the skies openings And we can buy that diamond ring And just about any other thing With somebody else's money We can tattoo nickels on our skin We'll drain our veins and put honey in We'll buy new fingers two times ten We'll even put pennies in our chins We'll buy a silver set of wings Lay 'em on our backs for the winds And we can buy that diamond ring And just about any other thing With somebody else's money We'll crash in on the neighbors wedding We'll steal the cake and go running You'll head straight for the jewelry And i'll steal the money like a lottery We'll buy a set of legs just for walking And another set of tongues for when we're small talking Another set of lips for being obscene And another set of heads for halloween And we can buy you that swing To swing through the skies openings We can buy that diamond ring Just about any other thing With somebody else's money We can buy babies for the babies We'll give them both big red ponies They'll live in that mansion on the hill That we'll keep on fillin' until it's filled We'll watch the neighbors fatten up with greed Watching us buying everything we don't need I know they're listening Through a telescope from across the street Watching us fillin' up the bathtubs with sweets Money, money, money Money on the floor put money in the beds Put money in the drains Money coming out of our heads Money, money, money We can kill many a dirty man Work by the church when they bring us in We can buy anything Because there's always something That's so funny about spending Somebody else's money
