      Lyrics

      One more card and it’s twenty two
      Unlucky for him again
      He never had respect for money it’s true
      That’s why he never wins
      That’s why he never ever has enough
      To treat his lady right
      He just pushes her away in a huff
      And says ‘Money don’t matter to night’

      Money don’t matter to night
      It sure didn’t matter yesterday
      Just when you think you’ve got more than enough
      That’s when it all up and flies away
      That’s when you find out that you’re better off
      Makin’ sure your soul’s alright
      ‘Cause money didn’t matter yesterday,
      And it sure don’t matter to night

      Look, here’s a cool investment
      They’re tellin’ him he just can’t lose
      So he goes off and tries to find a partner
      But all he finds are users (users)
      All he finds are snakes in ever color
      Every nationality and size
      Seems like the only thing he can do
      Is just roll his eyes, and say that

      Money don’t matter to night (don’t matter)
      It sure didn’t matter yesterday
      Just when you think you’ve got more than enough
      That’s when it all up and flies away
      That’s when you find out that you’re better off
      Makin’ sure your soul’s alright (soul’s alright)
      ‘Cause money didn’t matter yesterday, (don’t matter)
      And it sure don’t matter to night

      (ooh-wee-ooh, don’t matter)
      (it don’t matter to night, no)

      Hey now, maybe we can find a good reason
      To send a child off to war
      So what if we’re controllin’ all the oil,
      Is it worth a child dying for? (is it worth it?)
      If long life is what we all live for
      Then long life will come to pass
      Anything is better than the picture of the child
      In a cloud of gas
      And you think you got it bad

      Money don’t matter to night (no, don’t matter)
      It sure didn’t matter yesterday (yesterday)
      Just when you think you’ve got more than enough
      That’s when it all up and flies away (flies away, flies away)
      That’s when you find out that you’re better off
      Makin’ sure your soul’s alright (make certain that your soul’s alright)
      ‘Cause money didn’t matter yesterday,
      It sure don’t matter to night

      Money don’t matter to night
      It sure didn’t matter yesterday (yesterday, yesterday)
      Just when you think you’ve got more than enough
      That’s when it all up and flies away (flies away, flies away)
      That’s when you find out that you’re better off
      Makin’ sure your soul’s alright
      Money didn’t matter yesterday,
      And it sure don’t matter to night
