I've been laid off from work, my rent is due
My kids all need brand new shoes
So I went to the bank to see what they could do
They said, sir, look like bad luck got a hold on you

Money's too tight to mention
I can't get an unemployment extension
Money's too tight to mention

I went to my brother to see what he could do
He said, brother, I'd like to help but I'm unable to
So I called on my father, father
Almighty father, he said

Money's too tight to mention
Oh, money, money, money, money
Money's too tight to mention
I can't even qualify for my pension

We're talking 'bout Reagan'omic's
Oh Lord, down in the Congress
They're passing all kinds of bills
From down on Capitol Hill, we've tried it

Money's too tight to mention, cutback
Money's too tight to mention
Oh, money, money, money, money

We're talking 'bout money, money
We're talking 'bout money, money
We're talking 'bout money, money
We're talking 'bout money, money

We're talking 'bout money, money
We're talking 'bout money, money
We're talking 'bout money, money
Money, money, money

We're talking 'bout the dollar bill
And that old man that's over the hill
Now what are we all to do
When money's got a hold on you?

Money's too tight to mention
Oh money money money money
Money's too tight to mention
Dinero, money, oh

I'm talking 'bout money, money
I'm talking 'bout money, money
I'm talking 'bout money, money
I'm talking 'bout money, money

Yeah, I'm talking 'bout
I'm talking 'bout money, money
I'm talking 'bout money, money
I'm talking 'bout money, money

Did the earth move for you, Nancy?
Did the earth move for you, Nancy?
Did the earth move for you, Nancy?
Did the earth move for you, Nancy?

Yeah, I'm talkin`, Nancy
Yeah, I'm talkin`, Nancy
Yeah, I'm talkin`, Nancy
Yeah, I'm talkin`, Nancy

Yeah, I'm talkin`, Nancy
Yeah, I'm talkin`, Nancy
Yeah, I'm talkin`, Nancy
Yeah I`m talkin`, 'bout it

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, I want some money, money, money
Read my heaven, oh my
The sight of all that money
