  • Every dollar counts and every morning hurts
    We mostly work to live, until we live to work

    She said, "You know, there's nowhere else to go"
    But changing roles, it struck me that the two of us could run

    Worlds away from cars and all the Stars and Bars
    Where a little bit of condensation means so much
    And a little bit of change is all your little fingers touch

    I said, "You know, there's nowhere else to go"
    But changing roles, it struck me that the two of us could run

    'Cause, honey, with you-ooh-ooh-ooh
    Is the only honest way to go
    And I could take two-ooh-ooh-ooh
    But I really couldn't ever know
    Honey, with you-ooh-ooh-ooh
    And a little bata radio
    We could try

    So lead my feet away, 'cause all they do is stay
    And I don't think your eyes have ever looked surprised

    She said, "You know, there's nowhere left to go"
    But with her fund, it struck me that the two of us could run

    'Cause, honey, with you-ooh-ooh-ooh
    Is the only honest way to go
    And I could take two-ooh-ooh-ooh
    If I really couldn't ever know
    Honey, with you-ooh-ooh-ooh
    And a battered radio
    We could try, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER JOSEPH BAIO, CHRISTOPHER WILLIAM TOMSON, EZRA KOENIG, ROSTAM BATMANGLIJ
