I was walkin along the city streets,
clouds were forming.
It seemed there would be
a storm coming soon.
I bought a coat and I dug a moat,
went in to my castle.
Grabbed a smoke,
really, I'm so stoned.
Now the word that speaks so real to me
is the word of all that came to be.
From nothing you get nothing,
nothing at all for free.

Because oh, nothing's free.
Oh, nothing's free
Oh, nothing's free.
(my college education sure isn't free!)

Well the last I heard,
there was war you see
and it was bigger
than a war like world war three.
Bombs and guns and ammo they sold out fast.
But me I was home in my castle grounds.
It's words I like and a brand new bike,
a castle at the edge of twilight.
I watched on TV and heard the sounds,
the sounds of war were comin' to me for free.

But oh, nothing's free.
Oh, nothing's free.
Oh, nothing's free.
(gas prices sure aren't free!)

Now the whiskey bottles parade the coutner
in a single file line,
'cause a handle a night
means we had a gooooood time.
Now I'm living, loving, laughing, giving,
kissing, hugging, having fun,
Taking time to realize
the beauty of the company I'm keeping.
I get out enough change,
to walk down to the café,
I read the sign it says,
it says, "get your drinks for free!"

But oh, nothing's free.
Oh, nothing's free.
Oh, nothing's free.
(not even water is free!)

Oh, nothing's free.
Oh, nothing's free!
