    One, two, three, four

    Yesterday I was a bum and broke
    Today I am a star and broke
    In this town that's called progress
    That's how we do biz

    I've been rich and I've been poor
    Rich was better, totally better
    Requires a degree of acceptance
    As in, "Must accept as is"

    Drive my search engine home
    Dropped, chopped, Alabama chrome
    Hey what the hell it runs, so
    The day is done so
    Let's have some fun so
    Yours very truly
    As is

    That's how it goes

    How expensive he was
    Or what was he worth?
    Ain't no Brinks truck
    Following no Hearse

    Drive my search engine home
    Dropped, chopped, Alabama chrome
    Hey what the hell it runs, so
    The day is done so
    Let's have some fun so
    Yours very truly
    As is

    Ahh, this next part should really confuse things
    Everybody let's stay focused

    Love of the craft
    Or love of the buck
    Every day down here's a rainy day
    We don't save up

    Little more volume in the headphones please

    Unspoiled by progress
    "As Is" is how I follow through
    It's not who you squeeze
    But who returns once again to squeeze you, no doubt
    Love 'em all I says
    Let Cupid sort 'em out, woo

    Drive my search engine home
    Dropped, chopped, Alabama chrome
    Hey what the hell it runs, so
    The day is done so
    Let's have some fun so
    Yours very truly
    As is

    Love of the craft
    Or love of the buck
    Every day down here's a rainy day
    We don't save up

    La-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la, woo
    La-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la
