about

Single from the upcoming album "What You Say"

lyrics

You got a job, you scrimped and saved
You got a house, you had it made
Little did you think, never had you thought
That it would come to this, to shaking angry fists
To fourteen hour shifts, why has it come to …
Your money or your life, you know you can't take it with you
Your money or your life, you know you can't take it with you (no you can't)
You worked the land, you lived your life
You tilled the soil, you took a wife
Never would you think and little did you know
You never saved a dime, you rented never owned
We're sorry for all the times you stayed up working nights
But now we must collect your mortgage or your wife
Your money or your life, your money (or your life)
Your money or your life, you know you can't take it with you
Your money or your life, you know you can't take it with you ….

You can't take it with you, man
The clothes, the cars, the diamonds, the bars
Fine cuisine is just a dream
The mansion, the boat, the castle with the moat
The gravy train, red wine, champaign
Caviar, blue crab, cigars…
It's all gone when you die
