The Lyrics

People always said to me that there's no free ride
You've got to make some sacrifices
With so many friends on your own side
Even your soul pays the prices

But talk is cheap
It takes money to buy your freedom
And the tax man's knockin' at your door

Spend it while you can
Money's contraband
You can't take it with you when you go
Spend it while you can
Before it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this Shenango Valley

Too many girls to give out my balloons to
Everybody wants to get their hands on one
Maybe a red here, a baby blue there
They're all having lots of fun

But talk is cheap
It takes money to buy your freedom
And the tax man's knockin' at your door

Spend it while you can
Money's contraband
You can't take it with you when you go
Spend it while you can
Before it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this Shenango Valley

What's mine is mine
If it's only one thin dime
My cash has always meant to flow

Spend it while you can
Money's contraband
You can't take it with you when you go
Spend it while you can
Before it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this Shenango Valley

But talk is cheap
It takes money to buy your freedom
And the tax man's knockin' at your door

Spend it while you can
Money's contraband
You can't take it with you when you go
Spend it while you can
Before it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this Shenango Valley
There's no free ride in this Shenango Valley
