Lyrics

O you're a star and I can see it baby
O you'll go far and I can see it in your eyes
Been working hard for a long time
Yea you've been about it for a long time
Yea, Yea

Still we've got nothing (just a little something)
A little something sometimes helps you to get by
But we've been broke for a long time
Yea we've been out for a long time now

I know that money don't make the man
I know that money still pays the rent
I know that money don't make the man
I know that money still pays the rent

If you're going up then use the elevator
If you're going down then just follow me
Cuz I've been down for a long time
Yet I've been around for a long time now

If it were up to me
Don't you think I woulda found a way to take care yea, yea
And if it were just 1-2-3
Don't you think I woulda found a way to make it yea, yea
But it ain't easy and simple
It's greasy and wrinkled and foul
