The Lyrics

Affluenza: A social condition arising from the desire to be more wealthy, successful, or to "keep up with the Joneses."
There’s a man who spends more than his paycheck
The speed at which he buys is really breakneck
With every purchase he makes, another chance he takes
Odds are he won’t have money tomorrow

Affluenza Man, Affluenza Man
They’ve given you a credit line and taken away your brain

Beware of special deals that you find
The advertisers are trying to rob you blind
Oh, be careful what you pay, you’ll throw all your cash away
Odds are you won’t have money tomorrow

Affluenza Man, Affluenza Man
They’ve given you a credit line and taken away your brain

Living like the rich and famous one day
Then being chased by creditors the next day
You’ve spent too much on shopping sprees, now your credit’s in deep freeze
Odds are you won’t have money tomorrow

Affluenza Man, Affluenza Man
They’ve given you a credit line and taken away your brain

Affluenza Man.

No comments? That ain't being generous or hospitable. Could be most readers here are too young to know about Johnny Rivers. This was good
