A funky rockin' jam with some bubbly organ work and a few slashing, bluesy guitar solos....as well as a head-bobbing breakdown in the middle, just for fun.


I wish I had a nickel for every lie you've told
For every night you shut me down and left me in the cold
I wish I had just one thin dime for every time you cried
And somewhere deep inside of me a little something died

But I ain't got no money
And you got no excuse

I wish I had a quarter for every plastic smile
My lawn would shine like silver, huge nickel-plated piles
And if I had a dollar bill for every fit you've thrown
I'd be buying stuff outright instead of rent-to-own

But I don't even have the juice to pay for this here groove...

A little taste of chocolate, a little sip of wine
Some laughter and a kiss or two would keep me feelin' fine
But fine to you means payment for everything I'm not
So I'll just keep on writing checks for money I ain't got

Yeah, it seems you have bewitched me, your hair all wild and loose
So lead me to the gallows and put me in that noose
'Cause I ain't got no money
And you got no excuse
