"Freeway" as written by Wayne Anthony Hector, Thomas Mark Harmer Nichols, Alexander Soos and Ho Seok Yoo....
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
The road to Orange County leaves an awful lot of leeway
Where everyone's a doctor or a specialist in retail
They'll sell you all the speed you want if you can take the blackmail

You know it
I know it
Why don't you
Just show it?
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway

You got a lot of money, but you cannot keep your bills paid
The sacrifice is worth it just to hang around the arcade
You found yourself a prophet, but you left him on the boardwalk
Another chocolate Easter bunny, hollowed out by your talk

You know it
I know it
Why don't you
Just show it?
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway

And everything I do is wrong
But at least I'm hanging on

You got a lot of money, but you can't afford
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
You got a lot of money, but you
Can't afford
You got a lot of money, but you
Can't afford

    General CommentI love this song, it's incredibly catchy! I always thought the line was "hollowed out by your tongue" though.

    General CommentAccording to the powers that be at aimeemann.com, it's "your talk" -- which formes a double end rhyme with "boardwalk."

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Sean Penn being late to Easter Dinner. I don't get how no one else sees that.
