the best happiness money can buy lyrics – i can make a mess like nobody’s business

time goes by,
and we watch our lives,
as they’re sadly slipping away.
alone, we cry.

so follow that tune quickly
or you’ll lose the melody you never hear
when you were young you didn’t care.
it’s the one that stole your fathers pride,
that mighty mighty dollar sign.
these are the things that matter now,
so sing along and be…

prepared to jump,
when the ship has sunk,
and you’re slowly watching it drown.
alone, you cry.

so follow that tune quickly
or you’ll lose the melody you never hear
when you were young you didn’t care.
it’s the one that stole your fathers pride,
that mighty mighty dollar sign.
these are the things that matter now,
so sing along and be prepared.

maybe we care about too much
time we lost and in spite we run,
but i’m wrong, but you know i’m wrong.
