Lyrics


I WALKED INTO THE BANK TO GET ME A LOAN
SO I COULD BUY MY BABY A BRAND NEW HOME
THE MAN JUST SMILED AND SAID, "SORRY BUT YOUT CREDIT DON'T RATE"
THEN I WENT TO THE JEWELER SAID, SHOW ME A RING
SO I CAN TELL MY BABY SHE MEANS EVERYTHING"
ALL HE'D SHOW ME WAS THE DOOR - NOTHING THERE I COULD AFFORD..I GOT

BIG DREAMS NO MONEY
THE MOVERS AND SHAKERS JUST LOOK AT ME FUNNY
LIKE I'M TRYIN' TO SELL CHOCOLATE FROM THE MILKY WAY
WANT TO SAIL AROUND THE WORLD IN A CHEVROLET
ALL I WANT IS A LIFE FOR ME AND MY HONEY
I GOT BIG DREAMS AND NO MONEY

I PULLED MY LIFE SAVINGS TO PUT INTO STOCKS
THE BROKER SAID THAT WON'T EVEN BUY ME NEW SOCKS
I LEFT 'EM ROLLIN' IN THE AISLES LAUGHIN' LIKE HYENAS IN HEAT
THE RICH GET RICHER THE POOR STAY POOR
GOTTA HAVE MONEY IF YOU WANT TO MAKE MORE
IF I'M EVER GONNA BREAK FREE - GONNA HAVE TO WIN THE LOTTERY...GOT

BIG DREAMS NO MONEY
THE MOVERS AND SHAKERS JUST LOOK AT ME FUNNY
LIKE I'M TRYIN' TO BUILD AN IGLOO OUT OF DESERT SAND
WANT TO RAISE A HERD OF CATTLE ON BARREN LAND
ALL I WANT IS A LIFE FOR ME AND MY HONEY
I GOT BIG DREAMS AND NO MONEY

THERE ON THE NEWS STANDING IN LINE
FOR THE BIGGEST STATE LOTTERY OF ALL TIME
WERE THE BANKER, THE BROKER, THE JEWELER, AND ME
ALL LOOKING FOR THE ROAD TO EASY STREET

BIG DREAMS NO MONEY
THE MOVERS AND SHAKERS JUST LOOK AT ME FUNNY
LIKE I WANT A POT OF GOLD FROM SILVER SPOONS
OR TO RUN A MARATHON IN A SWIMMING POOL
ALL I WANT IS A LIFE FOR ME AND MY HONEY
I GOT BIG DREAMS AND NO MONEY

BIG DREAMS NO MONEY
BIG DREAMS NO MONEY
