Green Addiction

We walk along

See a penny on the ground

And today's our lucky day.

The start of a wave

Sweep the country like a craze.

Money's the drug today.

High on Money.

We're high on Money.

Swirling in a mass of green.

We're all good,

We can't go wrong.

But all the Pride

Can't stop the Fall.

Like little children

Holding Quarters in our eyes.

We're blind by the Money all around.

But the Lucky Penny

Has just been Spent.

And the Nickel on the ground

Gets lodged in our Throat

And we're Choked by the Money falling down.

High on Money.

We're high on Money.

Swirling in a mass of green.

We're all good,

We can't go wrong.

But all the Money

Can't break our Fall.

The high wears off

And the Money goes away

And we swear we'll never go again.

But we walk along

See a Penny on the ground

And the High starts over again.
