Love, and Money

lyrics

i had a future
i had a past
they shot me down
and hanged me on the mast
but i got soul
yeah, i got soul
soul and money will buy you a pint of beer


I went to school
at the top of my class
tried to teach the people
what came to pass
but nobody cared, and no one was spared
knowledge and money will buy you a pint of beer

I played the fiddle
i was pretty good
i sang some songs
did what i could
then i'd go to work
so we could have some bread
talent and money will buy you loaf of bread

i had a family
i had a wife
i could barely feed them
we had a troubled life
but we had love,
we had love
love and money will buy you a pint of beer

i had a future
i had a past
they shot me down
and hanged me on the mast
but i got soul
yeah, i got soul
soul and money will buy you a pint of beer
