The Lyrics

Bum times with our wives, they all complain
they want dinero
So much to dispise
we go that place
where we can borrow

Green for me, that same old song,
Got no cash to spend
I'll yelp and carry on
for before too long
I'm gonna need
Some money some green ones

Fleas follow inside
I'll get something for these tomorrow
No one can kill these fleas
Without a little dough

You just call it a bummer when you need a grand
We all need some money, some green ones
I just fight with this problem, I can't countermand
We all need some money, some green ones

Green for me
that same old song
Got no cash to spend
I'll yelp and carry on
for before too long
I'm gonna need some money, some green ones

You just call it a bummer when you need a grand
We all need some money, some green ones
I just fight with this problem, I can't countermand
We all need some money, some green ones

I punch in my code, my cash is rare
My bank won't carry
I'll write up some code
Hack a download
And bust out a small fee

Green for me (I could stand a grand)
Small fee

Small fee (I don't need a grand)
Green fee
