Land Of The Bottom Line Lyrics

John Gorka – Land Of The Bottom Line Lyrics

I couldn't bribe a wino on what I used to make
My fortune was as sure as the wind
But I was free to wonder and time was on my hands
It was mine to burn and to bend

Freedom for freedom
Call that an even scheme
Give me time to wonder and to dream
I'll take the money
They'll take the time
Down to the land of the bottom line
To the bottom line

Then there came a chance to make some steady dough
Bouncing up my alley to the door
You fill your clothes with keys and damned responsibilities
Trading the maybe for the sure

All I ever wanted was to be a kid and play
Fighting every change along the way
I don't like work, but I don't like waste
And I don't like waiting for a taste
