Lyrics

ALMIGHTY BOTTOM LINE

Dow Jones net worth, Nelson poll network
French cut thigh high, makes you want to buy, buy
Thick and creamy chocolate flavor
Lowest common denominator
Can?t you hear me cry?
The almighty bottom line

You got to be young, be hip, be happenin?
Drink a lot of beer but stay cover girl thin
With sex appeal seeping from every pore
A shrink-wrapped commodity down to the core
If you want to worship at the shrine
Of the almighty bottom line

Ain?t no room for experiments
Just give ?em what they want, they?ll take what they can get
?Cause the secret of true happiness
Can be found inside a TV set

Just once chance, that?s all you?ll get
To walk that rope and there ain?t no net
Better have your demographics down for sure
Or you?ll wind up on that cutting room floor
But there ain?t no use to whine
About the almighty bottom line

There?s only one question to be asked
Does it make a lot of money, real fast
Anything else is extraneous
Art and ethics and all that stuff

So if you want to make to the big time
Just keep this golden rule in mind
Give unto others what?s already been done
And you will secure your place in the sun
Riding on a dollar sign
To the almighty bottom line
