I play the game of a rich boy, I buy everything I can. My bankroll is a foot thick, I'm a wealthy man. A million dollar reserve note is right there in my hand And I can't stand to think it's all that I've got. Take away all my silver Take away all my gold And hand me a stack of paper Paper money don't hold. Paper money don't hold. Well, you act as though you don't remember The way it all used to be. Now one man, he locks up the money Another man holds the key. My car cost me fifteen grand, Some say I got a deal. Melt it down, I've got a thousand pounds of junk And ten dollars worth of steel.
