The Lyrics

Bought tickets that just couldn't lose
Got featured on the evening news
Sad future a poor man might choose
After the mil is gone

Your fame blossomed and those doors opened
Just don't start out on a downhill trend
When it's discovered you lose all your friends
After the mil is gone, oh
After the mil is gone

What can you do when the bills come due
And you don't have cash on hand?
What if you've grown used to gourmet cuisine
And what you eat now is so bland?

Hot flashes, you were your own boss
Rich life living now you've grown too soft
Need a job but no one is paying what you cost
After the mil is gone
After the mil is gone

Say your goodbyes to that rented mansion
Look for a job at the mall
Maybe better to go back ranching
Time to pick up your old small town drawl

Lived fancy, time to pay your dues
You're used to cocktails now you just drink booze
You get kicked out of places they used to kiss your shoes
After the mil is gone
After the mil is gone
After the mil is gone, oh
After the mil is gone

I'm somewhat dense today, trying to figure out why you spelled (paper) mill with one l. Then I got it, and the song made so much more sense!

Jeff, I'll try to remember to fill in the top comment with any abbreviations I use in the future, yes, mil = million as in million dollar lotto winners.
