Living our daily lives
Watching the world go around
Talking about the wife
Inviting the neighbours 'round

"Money wouldn't change us!" we'd be saying
"Money wouldn't make us!" but we'd be praying
And now you've thrown our principles away
Because it's come your way

The water is hot and clean
It's wiping the dirt away
The work is very hard
But you said you'd stay

Because after all, what would you do
With so much time, it just isn't you
To just let fame and fortune run the show
But we both know

Just remember who you were only yesterday
Because now you're speaking down to me
Like I'm a thousand miles away

He was always very kind
Always such a gentleman
But since his lucky day
He wasn't worth the skin
He was printed on

Money wouldn't change him, he'd be saying
Money wouldn't take him, but he'd be praying
And now he's thrown our principles away
Cause it's come his way

Just remember who you were only yesterday
Because now you're speaking down to me
Like I'm a thousand miles away
