People in line got a real good laugh
When I pumped two dollars worth of premium gas
Money down the drain, it's all I could afford

A twist off bottle and tall boy can
In a brown paper sack from the quick stop man
Got a hand full of change, it's all I could afford

I ain't got no dough, no, I get it and it goes
Like the water flows outta my hands, uncle Sam
I want you to know the money's done spent

No it just don't last, yeah, it goes too fast
It ain't comin' back, I don't know where it went?
You spent it on your friends, all I know is it gets spent
Yeah, it just gets spent, yeah, the money gets spent

Tried my ATM card, County Bank, it flashed me no funds
Even told me no thanks
Wouldn't give it back to me, it's all I could afford

Yeah, I went to go buy me a brand new dress
But the man behind the counter wouldn't take my check
Said, there's nothin' for free, it's all I could afford

I'd like to take a vacation, to the islands
I'd love to take you where the water's so blue
Bring mama, to the Bahamas
But no, can do 'cause the money I'd use is spent

No it just don't last, yeah, it goes too fast
It ain't comin' back, I don't know where it went?
You spent it on your friends, all I know is it gets spent
Yeah, it just gets spent, yeah, the money gets spent

Well, there's people walkin' 'round in the world out there
Just wishin' they could have what we got here
But you can't buy love like a lotta people think
'Cause when it comes to us just as fast as we can make it, spent

Well it's spent, no it just don't last, yeah, it goes too fast
It ain't comin' back, I don't know where it went?
You spent it on your friends, all I know is it gets spent
Yeah, it just gets spent, yeah, the money gets spent

Well it's spent, no it just don't last, yeah, it goes too fast
It ain't comin' back, I don't know where it went?
You spent it on your friends, all I know is it gets spent
Yeah, it just gets spent, yeah, the money gets spent
