Simply Red – Money’s Too Tight (To Mention) – 1985

    Paroles

    I 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 ».

    Money’s too tight to mention.
    I can’t get an unemployment extension.
    Money’s too tight to mention.

    I 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

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

    We talk about Reaganomics.
    Oh Lord, down in the congress
    They’re passing all kinds, of bills
    From down on Capital Hill (we’ve tried them)

    Money’s too tight to mention.
    (spoken) Cut back!
    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 old 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
