no time to get what you wanted
its time to get what you need
there's a girl at the corner store
who says her life is such a bore, now
"i need my money and i'll be complete"
now she's selling her body
babydoll, woman can't you see?
that all of the best things in life are free
you don't need to be a millionaire to be happy
and we're all getting older
no time to get what you wanted
its time to get what you need
no time to get what you wanted
is it so hard, is it so hard to see?
i met a man who was already dead with
a needle in his arm and a gun to his head, he said:
"i need my money for just one more hit,
or at least one more bullet"
in this land of hypocrisy
where all of the best things in life are free
you don't need to be a moviestar or on tv
now we're all getting older
