Jöjjön ismét egy zenés feladat, ezúttal Simply Red dalával! 

Simply Red ‘Money’s Too Tight To Mention”

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 reaganonics
Oh lord down in the congress
They’re passing all kinds – of bills
From down capitol hill – (we’ve tried them)

Money’s too tight to mention
cut-back!
Money money money money
We’re talk-in’ a-bout money money
We’re talk-in’ a-bout money money
We’re talk-in’ ’bout the dollar bill
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
A money – money oh yeah
We’re talk-in’ a-bout money money
We’re talk-in’ a-bout money money
We’re talk-in’ a-bout money money
We’re talk-in’ a-bout money money:..
