 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Every night before I got to sleep
Find a ticket, win a lottery
Scoop those pearls up from the sea
Cash them in and buy you all the things you need

Every night before I rest my head
I see those dollar bills go swirling all around my bed
I know they're stolen but I don't feel bad
I'll take that money and buy you things you've never had

Oh baby, it would mean so much to me
Oh baby, to buy you all the things you need for free
If you believe, believe in me
Where were you, babe? Where were you, babe?
Where were you, babe? Where were

I had free money, free money, I had free money
I had a dream about you, a dream about me
And we had free money and a black limousine
Everything was new, it was clean

And you reached out for the ring, a diamond ring
But it wasn't real, it was a dream
I woke up and I screamed
I want you, free money
