  • There is a lie that I believed
    The more that I got, the more I'd be free, free, free, free
    So I've been away, making the green
    See, the more that I get, the more that I need, need, need, need

    So pray for my, pray for my, pray for my soul
    I got a, caught a disease, and it's gold
    Caught it so easy like the common cold, ooh, ooh
    Tossing and tossing and turning around
    Trying and trying to sweat it all out
    Kicking the habit that's pulling me down, ooh, oh

    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Oh, no, I think I missed it, I was chasing money"
    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Oh, no, I got a big house, but my heart is ugly"
    You can't take it with ya, and your whip ain't gon' miss ya
    So wipe off that window, see the bigger picture now
    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Whoa, no, I think I missed it, I was chasing money"

    Now there is a dream that I was sold
    Just get all you can before you get old, old, old, old
    So I bought it all and took out a loan
    But now that I'm here, I got nothing to show, show, show, show

    Pray for my, pray for my, pray for my soul
    I got a, got a disease, and it's gold
    Caught it so easy like the common cold, ooh, ooh
    Tossing and tossing and turning around
    Trying and trying to sweat it all out
    Kicking the habit that's pulling me down, ooh, oh

    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Whoa, no, I think I missed it, I was chasing money"
    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Whoa, no, I got a big house, but my heart is ugly"
    You can't take it with ya, and your whip ain't gon' miss ya
    So wipe off that window, see the bigger picture now
    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Whoa, no, I think I missed it, I was chasing money"

    I want a life (I want a life) I cannot pay for
    I want a life (I want a life) I can't afford to live without
    I want a life (I want a life) I cannot pay for
    I want a life (I want a life) I can't afford to be missing out

    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Oh, no, I think I missed it, I was chasing money"
    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Oh, no, I got a big house, but my heart is ugly"
    I don't wanna be eighty-five (I don't wanna be eighty-five), singing
    "Whoa, no, I think I missed it, I was chasing money" (I was chasing money)
    I don't wanna be eighty-five, singing
    "Whoa, no, I got a big house, but my heart is hurting me"
