When I woke up this morning                          
I was tired as I could be                         
 I think I was counting my money                         
 When I should have been counting sheep                          
My agent he just called me                          
and told me what I should be                          
If I would make my music for money                         
 Instead of making music for me                         
                  
 I said I know that this may sound funny                          
But money don't mean nothin' to me                          
I won't make my music for money, no                         
 I'm gonna make my music for me 
                         
He said that people only buy the love songs.                          
Rock and roll is not too long                          
He said son you got to be commerical                          
If you want to turn the people on.                          
And I said turning on the people                          
Now that's a beautiful place to be                          
But if I spend my time makin' memorable rhyme                          
Well who's gonna turn on me?                          

 I said I know that this may sound funny                          
But money don't mean nothin' to me                          
I won't make my music for money, no                         
 I'm gonna make my music for me  
              
Well now, I went up the country                          
And I'll tell you all about the scene                          
I found a place with much charm and much grace                          
That was untouched by the music machine                          
Well the people where havin' a good time                          
Makin' music all day long                          
And nobody cared if they ever got paid                          
One penny for playin' a song                          

 I said I know that this may sound funny                          
But money don't mean nothin' to me                          
I won't make my music for money, no                         
 I'm gonna make my music for me
