You gotta believe me John
needing anything from anyone is the last thing I want
but I don't know what I'm doing
I don't know where to start
I fell asleep on the train
coming in from work
found myself at your lace
the last place I would have looked
amongst the easter island souvenirs and self-help books
I was the state of the art of my ancestry
making fortunes out of nothing using modern alchemy
but now I'm feigning anaesthesia at the company scenes
how's a guy supposed to fall in love in this economy?
my money ain't what she used to be (x2)
now how's a guy supposed to fall in love in this economy?
my money ain't what she used to be...
well say it ain't so John, say it ain't true
if my money can't buy happiness a new pair of shoes
then will she ever look at me the way that she used to?
I was the new boy-genius, almost doomed to succeed
now I sit dumb as a computer through the hearings and briefs
while I try to understand just what's been taken from me
since she threw her torch at the city and swam out to sea
my money ain't who she used to be (x2)
she dropped her robes
threw her torch at the city and swam out to sea
my money ain't who she used to be
but don't you worry about me
don't you worry, worry, worry, worry, worry, worry, wo$$?, w$$$?, w0$$?, 00$??!!
