Bust a buck to pay a bill
Taking cash, a hopeless thrill
Plastic in, paper out
Cause soon you’ll have to do without

It’s a cold hard winter on a lone freeway
Burning gas just to get yourself paid
If you never lose to the blowing wind
When the storm comes down you’re gonna need a friend

Say “Hello, how do you do?”
You’ll know me well before the night is through.”
I came to be seen, I came to be heard
An invisible man whistling like a bird


Cash rolls in but it’s not enough
Living here’s been mighty tough
But you gotta show up and make ‘em grin
Though your body wastes and you’re getting thin

A wasteland grows in your bank account
Your hurt is full so you do without
Ain’t nothing worse than going gold
So strap in kid cause you’re getting old


These are hard luck times but it’s gotta be done
And if you give up now you’ll never be someone
So wrap up tight, the cold’s coming again
And it’ll only slow once you let it win
