"Piggy Bank" as written by and Christofer Drew....
(1, 2, 1, 2, yeah!)

A poor man would kill for the bank,
But a rich man would die for it.
If that's the case,
When I'm runnin' this race
It's the last place I waste time.

'Cause see, time is money and money brings time,
But you can buy yourself a new girlfriend.
She'll be a cold heart woman with a greedy eye
Waitin' for your old ass to die.

I'm so happy here with you 'cause you're my type of girl.
You never cared about my empty piggy bank,
Or the things that we could never do.
Uh-huh.

So give to the poor and pray for the rich,
'Cause you never know when your heart's gonna quit.
If you're working for a paycheck, you better cash in,
'Cause life's to short to never have lived.

And I'm so happy here with you 'cause you're my type of girl.
You never cared about my empty piggy bank,
Or the things that we could never do.
Uh-huh.

See, I've been working my whole life,
Tryin' to prove the pissy people wrong.
That you can earn an honest living with an old guitar
And a couple old-fashioned songs.

I'm so happy here with you 'cause you're my type of girl.
You never cared about my empty piggy bank,
Or the things that we could never do.
Uh-huh.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs from 'Harmony'. I think it's basically him saying that he's thrilled the girl he's with isn't obsessed with material things, regardless of whether or not he had a lot of money or not. Also, I think he's saying that he's happy she's okay with doing simple things instead of extravagant events and such.

    Song MeaningReferencing to (anythingelse's interpretation). This song is definitely about the thrill of finding someone who is true and not materialistic with life. He's talking about how she cares about spending genuine time with him instead of caring about having money. He wants to do simple things and how other people in love are shallow and materialistic because they seem to only care about how much money they have. He's saying life is short and even if we don't have money we should make the most out of life. He's happy with the life that he has regardless of his status and the things he won't be able to do because of his lifestyle and lack of money. He's just happy he has her and that's all he needs to be happy with his life. Good song and important lesson to learn. We could all die someday and it's important to live life to the fullest.
