  • Hey, little Anna, you're the one
    Rising before the lazy sun
    Open the store and bake the bread
    Leave all the dreamers with the dead
    Pray that whatever's lost is lost
    Nail all your worries to the cross

    Ooh, take out the knife
    Take out the knife
    Ooh, sharpen it twice
    And count all the money

    Someday, you know you're gonna die
    Some folks'll try to tell you why
    Where do you think they'll hide your bones?
    Out in a field, oh, all alone
    Nobody knows when it will end
    You better go and make some friends

    Ooh, take out the phone
    Take out the phone
    Ooh, sharpen a stone
    'Cause you got to get money

    Hey, little Anna, you're the one
    Rising before that lazy sun
    Cross all the numbers off your list
    I never knew it'd be like this
    Hey, little Anna, what's the move?
    I can't believe the things you do
    Hey, little Anna, look my way
    What's gonna be the price we pay
    For the money? Writer/s: WILLIAM BUTLER
