Verse 1

When I was young, I complained to my dad about

How he never got me a giant fancy birthday cake,

Or a Barbie doll, or teddy bears, like the other kids.

And he told me, grow up, you'll see your mistake.

Verse 2

When I was eighteen, my little cat died one night.

And I realized, there's so much that money can't buy.

You need people to love to smile while you live.

Can all the money bring someone back when they die?

Chorus

Something's really wrong with you

If you connect your happiness to

The sound of money rattling in your hands,

Fancy clothes, watches, shoes,

And you don't even have a clue

That it's a black hole where you stand.

It'll suck you in and into greed,

You'd lust for way more than what you need.

And without it, you're just hollow.

When money's gone, misery would follow.

And my father told me not to choose this life.

Verse 3

I grew up watching my dad tuck away expensive clothes.

He wanted to live a life that was sweet and simple.

He never told me about all the money he has- I have.

He never wanted me to think of him as my wishing well.

Chorus

Something's really wrong with you

If you connect your happiness to

The sound of money rattling in your hands,

Fancy clothes, watches, shoes,

And you don't even have a clue

That it's a black hole where you stand.

It'll suck you in and into greed,

You'd lust for way more than what you need.

And without it, you're just hollow.

When money's gone, misery would follow.

And my father told me not to choose this life.

Bridge

And when I told him that I

Wanted to be wrapped in diamonds

And gold on my wedding day,

He was quick to say, ok,

But if that's what you need to be

Happy on your biggest day,

Maybe you're marrying the wrong guy.

Chorus

Something's really wrong with you

If you connect your happiness to

The sound of money rattling in your hands,

Fancy clothes, watches, shoes,

And you don't even have a clue

That it's a black hole where you stand.

It'll suck you in and into greed,

You'd lust for way more than what you need.

And without it, you're just hollow.

When money's gone, misery would follow.

And my father told me not to choose this life.

A/N: True story :P All the money hungry people make me sick -_-
