Money Makes You Ugly
Lyrics


THE ICE IS MELTIN AND MY LAWN’S ON FIRE
THE WORLD ‘S GOT A FEVER GETTIN HIGHER AND HIGHER
RAPING MOTHER NATURE FRACKING UP THE EARTH
SELLING OFF THE LAND FOR ALL THAT ITS WORTH
JUST A LITTLE BLUE ROCK FLYING THROUGH SPACE
WHOEVER TOLD YOU THAT YOU OWN THIS PLACE

MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
BABY THAT’S THE TRUTH
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
YOU’RE THE LIVING PROOF
ONE THING IN LIFE I KNOW FOR SURE
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
THAT’S WHY I’M GLAD TO BE POOR.

WE’RE DRINKING WATER WHILE YOU’RE SIPPIN CHAMPAGNE
WHEN DO YOU THINK YOU’LL START TO FEEL ASHAMED
YOUR CONSCIENCE WAS LAID OFF WITH ALL THE PEOPLE YOU FIRED
TOOK BACK THEIR BENEFITS BEFORE THEY RETIRED
THE LAP OF LUXURY IT MUST FEEL NICE
BUT ONE DAY YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE

MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
BABY THAT’S THE TRUTH
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
YOU’RE THE LIVING PROOF
ONE THING IN LIFE I KNOW FOR SURE
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
THAT’S WHY I’M GLAD TO BE POOR.

YOU CAN HAVE THE BEST SMILE
MONEY CAN BUY
BOTOX YOUR LIPS
CHANGE THE COLOR OF YOUR EYES
BUT WHEN JUDGEMENT DAY COMES
YOU‘LL NEVER GONNA WIN
WHEN DEEP DOWN INSIDE YOU KNOW YOU’RE UGLY AS SIN

ANOTHER HURRICANE IS COMIN’
A WHOLE BUNCH OF QUAKES
THE AIR JUST POISONED
GRANDMA’S BIRTHDAY CAKE
YOU TURNED A PRETTY GARDEN
INTO LIVING HELL
LIKE THROWING WOODEN NICKELS
IN A WISHING WELL
IT WAS GOOD WHILE IT LASTED
FUN THERE’S NO DOUBT
WILL THE LAST PERSON LEAVING
PLEASE TURN THE LIGHTS OUT.

MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
BABY THAT’S THE TRUTH
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
YOU’RE THE LIVING PROOF
ONE THING IN LIFE I KNOW FOR SURE
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
THAT’S WHY I’M GLAD TO BE POOR.

MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
THAT’S WHY I’M GLAD TO BE POOR.
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
I’M SO HAPPY I’M POOR
MONEY MAKES YOU UGLY
