The Lyrics

The old paycheck looks the same
Short on digits, kinda' lame
And there's that hill a' bills each month I gotta' pay on
I drive an old Ford Escort, badly rusted
Monday morning I'm flat busted
It's hard to call this Green Green Cash my own

Yes, they all want my money
Hands reachin'..it ain't funny
'Can't seem to call this Green Green Cash my own

Big old house, sure looks shabby
And all the furniture is worn
But there is still one thing that I can always count on
And that's the love inside from my wife, Mary
Six sweet kids if I get weary
When I can't call this Green Green Cash my own

Yes, they all want my money
Hands reachin'...it ain't funny
Can't seem to call this Green Green Cash my own

This ain't no dream, I wish it would be
Then I'd be rich, like I should be
But that's a fantasy that's never gonna' happen
Life has a price tag, gotta' pay it
So, deep in debt I go, each day it
Gets more hard to call this Green Green Cash my own

Yes, they all want my money
Hands reachin' ...it ain't funny
I just can't call this Green Green Cash my own
