Money’s Too Tight To Mention – Simply Red

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 I’d like to help but I’m unable to
So called on my father, father
Almighty 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’re talking ’bout reaganomics
Oh lord down in the congress
They’re passing all kinds of bills
From up there on capitol hill, we’ve tried it

Money’s too tight to mention
Oh money money money money
Money’s too tight to mention
Cutbacks!

We’re talking ’bout the dollar bill
And that old man who’s over the hill
