The Lyrics

This poem is a parody of the song “Doing It All For My Baby,” performed by Huey Lewis and the News, and written by Mike Duke and Phil Cody.
Early in the morning, I’m still in bed
I’m dreaming about the wad I’ll earn today
I’ve got to go to work to make my bread
Got to keep my stash from slipping away
I’m doing my best to keep the green on my side
Because I don’t want to lose my house or my bride

Doing it all for the money
And there’s no end that I can see
Doing it all for the money
For everything it does for me

At the shop, I work all day with my mates
We have to keep all of the machines spinning
We can’t say that we’re tired of moving crates
And we aren’t quite sure which side is winning
Bosses and workers are just grist for the mill
We have to roll these stones to the top of the hill

Doing it all for the money
And there’s no end that I can see
Doing it all for the money
For everything it does for me

Later in the evening, as I’m paying off my loans
I’m watching all of the enticing TV ads
We’ve got to have better cars than Mr. Jones
And bigger houses than our poor, old dads
I’m doing my best to keep the economy alive
I’m checking to see when my toys will arrive

Doing it all for the money
And there’s no end that I can see
Doing it all for the money
For everything it does for me
