FREE MONEY


Every night before I go to sleep
Find a ticket, win a lottery
Scoop the pearls up from the sea
Cash them in and buy you all the things you need
Every night before I rest my head
See those dollar bills go swirling 'round my bed
I know they're stolen, but I don't feel bad
I take that money, buy you things you never had

Oh, baby, it would mean so much to me
Oh, baby, to buy you all the things you need for free
I'll buy you a jet plane, baby
Get you on a higher plane to a jet stream
And take you through the stratosphere
And check out the planets there and then take you down
Deep where it's hot, hot in Arabia, babia, then cool, cold fields of snow
And we'll roll, dream, roll, dream, roll, roll, dream, dream
When we dream it, when we dream it, when we dream it
We'll dream it, dream it for free, free money
Free money, free money, free money, free money, free money, free money

Every night before I go to sleep
Find a ticket, win a lottery
Every night before I rest my head
See those dollar bills go swirling 'round my bed

Oh, baby, it would mean so much to me
Baby, I know our troubles will be gone
Oh, I know our troubles will be gone, goin' gone
If we dream, dream, dream for free
And when we dream it, when we dream it, when we dream it
Let's dream it, we'll dream it for free, free money
Free money, free money, free money
Free money, free money, free money
Free money, free money, free money
Free money, free money, free money
Free money, free money, free money
Free money, free money, free money
Free money, free money, free money
Free money, free money, free money, free
