      About "It's Money That Matters"

      Lyrics for Randy Newman - "It's Money That Matters"

      Of all of the people that I used to know
      Most never adjusted to the great big world
      I see them lurking in book stores
      Working for the Public Radio
      Carrying their babies around in a sack on their back
      Moving careful and slow

      [Chorus)
      It's money that matters
      Hear what I say
      It's money that matters
      In the USA

      All of these people are much brighter than I
      In any fair system they would flourish and thrive
      But they barely survive
      They eke out a living and they barely survive

      When I was a young boy, maybe thirteen
      I took a hard look around me and asked what does it mean?
      So I talked to my father, and he didn't know
      And I talked to my friend and he didn't know
      And I talked to my brother and he didn't know
      And I talked to everybody that I knew

      (Chorus]
      It's money that matters
      Now you know that it's true
      It's money that matters
      Whatever you do

      Then I talked to a man lived up on the county line
      I was washing his car with a friend of mine
      He was a little fat guy in a red jumpsuit
      I said "You look kind of funny"
      He said "I know that I do"

      "But I got a great big house on the hill here
      And a great big blonde wife inside it
      And a great big pool in my backyard and another great big pool beside it
      Sonny it's money that matters, hear what I say
      It's money that matters in the USA
      It's money that matters
      Now you know that it's true
      It's money that matters whatever you do"
