Track 7.

lyrics

Hey, Mother Dollar
I love your crisp green shine
Ooh, Mother Dollar
You’re gonna be all mine, mine, mine
Given time

‘Cause I’m living on a spreadsheet
Where the numbers must add up
And all roads go straight to Yonge Street
To help ma’ dollar run, run, run, run

Hey, another dollar
On the taxi driver’s screen
You know he once was a surgeon, yeah
Proud of his four degrees
Oh please!

But he’s cornered on the spreadsheet
Can’t afford the college fees
And he’ll take you far down Yonge Street
To earn some dollars please

And the city smiles
Her work is done
Man drives on
And ma’ dollar runs
In spite of his life
In spite of his dreams
‘Cause that don’t sway
Ma’ Dollar’s mind
