Hey, hey, look closer, you can see how I been runnin' it
I got a dollar bill in the cockpit
Surprised being white is a black hole?
I got another job at the liquor store, damn!

Oh well, I'm bone broke, hey

They got a white pony in a stable
And ride him when the doggie isn't able
But he don't really care because they pay him
But still a black suit is gonna shake him down

Oh well, I'm bone broke
Yeah, broke as I'll ever be

Look another way, girl, I'm tellin' ya
God gave seven minutes right to ya
And your mother put her money into platinum
And now you never have to pay attention, do ya, do ya?

Yeah, I'm leanin' on a brick with my nails
I'm tellin' 'em the money's in the mail
Keep showin' that my bones never fake it
But now the brick bank is gonna break it down

Oh well, I'm bone broke

Look another way, girl, I'm tellin' ya
God gave seven minutes right to ya
Your mother put her money into platinum
So that you wouldn't have to pay attention
