Listen to the money when it talks

Makes you feel used up and small

You’re caught between its hands

Why did you try at all?


I listened and remembered what he said

“What’s good for me is good for you

Be careful what you wish for

It might come true”


That sometimes at night

When you’re alone inside your bed

You think about the things that have been said

That sometimes your life begins to go

In directions you don’t like

You can’t resist the flow

If you listen then you might

Then you might…


Listen once and listen good

What’s lost is never coming back

The people that you trust

Are the people you should watch


Ooh and sometimes at night

When you’re alone inside your bed

You think about the things that have been said

That sometimes your life begins to go

In directions you don’t know

You can’t resist the flow

If you listen then you might

Then you might…
