Jimmy Buffett - Makin' Music For Money

When I woke up this mornin'

I was tired as I could be

I think I was countin' my money

When I should a' been countin' sheep

My agent he just called me

And told me what I should be

If I would make my music for money

Instead of makin' music for me

Chorus:

I said "I know that this may sound funny

But money don't mean nothin' to me

I won't make my music for money

No I'm gonna make my music for me"

He said, "The people only buy the love songs

Rock n' Roll and not too long"

He said, "Son you got to be commercial

If you want to turn the people on"

And I said, "Turnin' on the people

Now that's a beautiful place to be

But if I spend my time makin' them up a rhyme

Well, who's gonna turn on me?"

Repeat Chorus:

Well now I went up to Country

And I'll tell you all about the scene

I found a place with much charm and much grace

That wasn't touched by the music machine

Whoa, the people were havin' a good time

Makin' music all day long

And nobody cared if they ever got paid

One penny for playin' a song

Repeat Chorus:

Repeat Chorus:

Whoa, I know
