The Lyrics

Owoooooooo
who's that I see buyin all these hoods
why it's "barry-spread-the-cash-I-took"
hey there gonna buy up the hoods
it sure can't be that good
pay everything for the folks that the banks could want
obscenities..

barry, don't buy up the hoods
spreading out wealth just aint that good
go working and leave goody old folks alone
owooouuuuuuu!!!!!!

what big yards you have
the kind of yards that drive me mad
so just watch me as your cash erased
I think I aught to shock you for my days

what nice trips you take
just memories soon to be had
so until you're in your grandma's place
I think you aught to fear me you're not safe

I've got a new cheap neat suit on
spread the wealth until all yours is gone
no, I can't be trusted
working folk soon be gone..
owuuuuuoooo!!!!

barry go buy that hood
a toxic asset, that's not good
you might think it's a real good thing,
it ain't
Owoooooooo

what a bad start you've had
the better to share it with
barry bought another hood
even bad folks can do good
he'll never be satisfied
till we all share misery inside
maybe then we will see the day
Sarah saves us and we're ok
barry, don't buy up the hoods
spreading out wealth just aint that good
go working and leave goody old folks alone
owooouuuuuuu!!!!!!
it's just baaaaaaaaaaaddddd
