which one is worse:
not making dollars out of 15 cents
or slaving harder at a job
for more pennies to pinch?

either way you lose
in this game there is no first place
when you're broke
you're just a rodent
in the money rat race

all my life i've lived check to check
and now i'm impatient
my degree aint doing nothing
so that was 30 G's wasted

just to keep from complaining
i have to look at it like this:
i would rather have a plaque
then to get those years back
and have nothing to show for it

i'm trying to pass financial blessings
to the next generation
and give them so much more
to dream and live for
than just a job or occupation
i want my daughters kids
living off of what grandaddy did
instead of starting out from scratch
i want to leave them something to work with

i want my baby girl
to see the whole world
from the ocean surf of Fiji
to the Egyptian pyramids
so in social studies class
when students say what they've learned
she'll say "I took pictures of the Sphinx"
when its her turn

but my good intentions
don't make not-a-nan million
they only make for good conversation
i have to remind myself
to go get the wealth
and stop procrastinating

take it from me:
keep your 30 G's
and just learn this lesson:
...talk is cheap
and doesn't sell well
in a recession

SHOW & PROVE!

either way you lose

this video explains why you can't win

give the video a chance you know how truth can seem so boring and elusive

right

we are all walking/talking credit/debit cards

tell me i'm wrong

if that was not the case there would be no need for statistics

see this crazy set-up is about to fall

a great man once said

"NO EMPIRE IS FOREVER"

nothing can out finite infinity

take it from me:
keep your 30 G's
and just learn this lesson:
...talk is cheap
and doesn't sell well
in a recession

SHOW & PROVE!

great advice brethren

It's a crying shame how we work so hard and have little more than the lint in our pockets to show for it. Feeling your expression poet.
