  • I ain't rich, but I damn sure wanna be
    Working like a dog all day, ain't working for me
    I wish I had a rich uncle that'd kick the bucket
    And that I was sitting on a pile like Warren Buffett
    I know everybody says
    Money can't buy happiness

    But it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
    Yeah, and I know what they say
    Money can't buy everything
    Well, maybe so,
    But it could buy me a boat

    They call me redneck, white trash and blue collar
    But I could change all that if I had a couple million dollars
    I keep hearing that money is the root of all evil
    And you can't fit a camel through the eye of a needle
    I'm sure that's probably true,
    But it still sounds pretty cool

    'Cause it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
    Yeah, and I know what they say,
    Money can't buy everything
    Well, maybe so,
    But it could buy me a boat

    To float down on the water with a beer
    I hear the Powerball Lotto is a-sitting' on a hundred mill
    Well, that would buy me a brand new rod and reel

    And it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
    Yeah, and I know what they say,
    Money can't buy everything
    Well, maybe so,
    But it could buy me a boat

    Yeah, and I know what they say,
    Money can't buy everything
    Well, maybe so,
    But it could buy me a boat
