Lyrics

Famous Faces


Verse

I'm a full time family man With a shoebox full of bills
I'm doing the best I can
Tryin to push everything up that hill
I keep one foot in the past
But I'm livin' in the present tense
Every day is another chance
To save a few dead presidents


Chorus
Two fives and a ten
Get you twenty more to spend
But you'll never make it to the top that way
If you keep breaking Benjamins
You won't have 'em in the end
You gotta save those famous faces
For a rainy day ,hey hey
You gotta save those famous faces
For a rainy day
(Intro riff)

Verse

I'm as thrifty as they come
I keep my wallet on a chain
I hide the big bills back at home
Behind a picture of John Wayne
When I shop the dollar store
I stock up on condiments
So I can keep my pantry full
And save a few dead presidents

Chorus

Bridge
[G] [D] [A]
I'm waiting for my ship to sail on in
Until it does i just can't go all in

Chorus

Just very well done. Great lyric, well recorded, well sung.

Very Clever lyrics!

This has a nice groove and is performed and recorded well.
