  • You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
    The road to Orange County leaves an awful lot of leeway
    Where everyone's a doctor or a specialist in retail
    They'll sell you all the speed you want if you can take the blackmail

    You know it
    I know it
    Why don't you
    Just show it?
    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway

    You got a lot of money, but you cannot keep your bills paid
    The sacrifice is worth it just to hang around the arcade
    You found yourself a prophet, but you left him on the boardwalk
    Another chocolate Easter bunny, hollowed out by your talk

    You know it
    I know it
    Why don't you
    Just show it?
    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway

    And everything I do is wrong
    But at least I'm hanging on

    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford
    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford
    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
    You got a lot of money, but you can't afford the freeway
    You got a lot of money, but you
    Can't afford
    You got a lot of money, but you
    Can't afford Writer/s: Aimee Mann
