[Verse 1]
I’ve been laid off from work
My rent is due
My kids all need
Brand new shoes
So I went to the bank
To see what they could do
They said son looks like bad luck
Gotta hold on you

Money’s too tight to mention
I can’t get an unemployment extension
Money’s too tight to mention

[Verse 2]
I went to my brother
To see what he could do
He said brother like to help you
But I’m unable to
So I called on my father, father
Oh, my father
He said

Money’s too tight to mention
Oh money, money, money, money
Money’s too tight to mention
I can’t even qualify for my pension

[Verse 3]
We talk about reaganonics
Oh lord down in the congress
They’re passing all kinds of bills
From down capitol hill, we’ve tried them

Money’s too tight to mention (cut-back!)
Money, money, money, money

We’re talkin’ about money money (x6)
Money, money, money, money!
We’re talkin’ ’bout the dollar bill
And that old man that’s over the hill
Now what are we all to do
When the money’s got a hold on you?

Money’s too tight to mention
Oh money, money, money, money
Money’s too tight to mention
Dinero, money, oh yeah

I’m talkin’ about money, money (x4)

I’m talkin’ about running, running (x3)
Did the earth move for you, Nancy? (x4)
Yeah, I’m talking, Nancy (x5)
Yeah, I’m talking ’bout it
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, I want some money, money, money
Read my heaven, oh my
The sight of all that money
