      About "Makin' Music For Money"

      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "Makin' Music For Money"

      When I woke up this morning
      I was tired as I could be
      I think I was counting my money
      When I should have been counting sheep

      My agent he just called me
      And told me what I should be
      If I would make my music for money
      Instead of making music for me

      [Chorus]
      I said I know that this may sound funny
      But money don't mean nothin' to me
      I won't make my music for money, no
      I'm gonna make my music for me

      He said that people only buy the love songs.
      Rock and roll is not too long
      He said son you got to be commercial
      If you want to turn the people on.

      And I said turning on the people
      Now that's a beautiful place to be
      But if I spend my time makin' memorable rhyme
      Well who's gonna turn on me?

      [Chorus]

      Well now, I went up the country
      And I'll tell you all about the scene
      I found a place with much charm and much grace
      That was untouched by the music machine
      Well the people where havin' a good time
      Makin' music all day long
      And nobody cared if they ever got paid
      One penny for playin' a song
