  • Way back in the good old days
    Things weren't really all that good
    We grew up with the TV on
    We learned how from Hollywood
    We learned how from Hollywood

    Riding with my headphones on
    In the back of my mama's car
    Winding down that dirty road
    Town was close but it felt far
    Town was close but it felt far

    Drive in movies, coca-cola
    Sweet 16, that kiss of death
    Don't you cry when you should laugh, babe
    I smell liquor on your breath
    I smell liquor on your breath

    If it don't break you
    It might just make you rich
    You might not get there
    And on the way it's a bitch

    Gettin by, gettin high
    Feeling like a low life bum
    Racked up debt, couldn't pay my rent
    Pissin' off til kingdom come
    Pissin' off til kingdom come

    Mother Mary, geez Louise
    I was havin a ball until I threw it too far
    Playin' dives, tryin' to stay alive
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star

    If it don't break you
    It might just make you rich
    You might not get there
    And on the way it's a bitch
    It's a bitch

    But then I won the lottery
    I struck gold and they picked me
    Winner winner, chicken dinner
    Hello mama look at me
    Hello mama look at me

    Now everything's turned inside out
    They wanna put me on a big TV
    Everybody wants to know
    How I feel and what I think
    How I feel and what I think

    If it don't break you
    It might just make you rich
    You might not get there
    And on the way it's a bitch
    Don't you know it's a bitch?
