Verse 1I been laid off from work
My rent is due

My kids all need
Brand new shoes


So I went to the bank
To see what they could do
They said son - looks like bad luck
Got-a hold on you


ChorusMoney's too tight to mention
I can't get an unemployment extension
Money's too tight to mention


Verse 2I went to my brother
To see what he could do
He said "brother, like to help you
But I'm unable to"

So I called on my father, father
Oh my father
He said


ChorusMoney's too tight to mention
Oh money, money, money, money
Money's too tight to mention
I can't even qualify for my pension


Verse 3We talk about reaganomics
Oh lord down in the congress
They're passing all kinds of bills
From down Capitol Hill (we've tried them)


ChorusMoney's too tight to mention
Money, money, money, money
We're talkin' about money, money
We're talkin' about money, money
We're talkin' 'bout the dollar bill
And that ol' man that's over the hill
Now what are we all to do
When the money's got a hold on you?
Money's too tight to mention
Oh money, money, money, money
Money's too tight to mention
Amero-money, oh yeah
We're talkin' about money, money
We're talkin' about money, money
We're talkin' about money, money
We're talkin' about money, money
