The Lyrics

Mommy let's stop crying
We're not good at faking tears
Dad's monthly offering is painful
So let's tear him down

I got daddy begging
I got him on his knees
I told the accountant that he didn't mean those nasty things he said

Daddy you fight about my inheritance
Saying I shouldn't get a thing
So I'm coming home
I gotta put that right

It ain't easy seeing so much money slip away, never knowing where your money is, you'll see
If I'll end up with nothing I will finish my family
So can't we work it out?
Can't I be your money pitt?
I promise I will get better
Daddy please leave a cheque

We're gonna work it out
We will be a family
Daddy you'll be better
Daddy please leave a cheque

Daddy please stop yelling
I can't help spending
Make your accountant stop crying
Cause we need him around
We love your money
No matter what they say
It's true

I know that she hurt your wallet,
But remember I love it too
You ran away yesterday
You tried to ran away from the noise
You will come back, there just ain't no other way!

It ain't easy growing up in the depression of the 2000's
Never knowing what life without money could be
You'll see,
We need your money like you need a family

So will work it out, won't we?
We will be a family
You will work even harder
I will do anything to keep you both
We will work it out
Wheter you like it or not
Promise you'll be better
Mom won't let the wallet leave

In our family contract,
We look pretty wealthy
Let's make daddy act, act
Like it comes naturally
I don't want to have only 1 creditcard
I don't want a ventilator when It's warm
I just want papers with money imprinted
I don't want cheap clothes

In our family contract,
We look pretty wealthy
Daddy is so abnormal
Let's make daddy act,
Act like it comes naturally
