week thirtytwo: nothing money

nothing money

he went after nothing money
thinking he’d impress somebody
thin man in a fat country
everybody knows he’s hungry
everybody’s after something
everybody's loves to see a show

he went after nothing love
married in the tropical sun
i don’t think he thought he’d run
the next time he met someone
but goodbye dolly hello dove
he barely got his pants back up you know

every game’s got a way to cheat
everybody wants a little more than they need

he went after nothing friends
sweet dudes with cash to spend
every night those lehman bros
cat calling doing coke
and every night the servers say
i hate those guys but they can pay you know

he went after nothing nights
oblivion and see through tights
with her ankles around his neck
he asked her if she’d take a check
hun she said i think you’re swell
but i don’t trust my clientele anymore

every game’s got a way to cheat
everybody wants a little more than they need

drink all day in the texas sun
send a representative to washington

congress says they’ll drop the case
got a lot of people they can put in a cage

it’s hard not to cheat
when you’re holding the money and the cards and the keys

he went after nothing fast
got a iob at goldman sachs
they put it all in real estate
and lost it in 2008
you’d think they might’ve stopped at that
but they reupped and got it back ten fold

he went after nothing money
thinking he’d impress somebody
sadly here’s the ending see
he gave a dime to the library
now wikipedia says philanthropy
is his number one priority he’s a hero
