      Like trying to knock down pins with marbles in my hand
      She wouldn't take a hi from me the average man
      Funny what money can do to people 
      But she had a light that had sparked up her evil
      Trying to chat up women who rate themselves so high
      Shouldn't be my subject but I felt like I should try
      Funny what drink can do for soldiers
      Well she must into men a little bit older

      Funny how it goes -- how money steals the show
      And all her diamonds twinkle as she dances and what's it got for me
      Hung over in my tree?
      I saw the sun shine bright in front of......

      Trying to get her dancing was not an easy job
      She made out like Houdini when I said do you bop
      Funny what rhythm does it kills me 
      Like champagne women only seem to spill me
      Trying to get the picture, I settled down to a drink
      When up came Cinderella, so what was I to think
      Funny how these shoes fit a dragon 
      Well she's like the sharks that you get in Manhattan

      Funny how it goes -- how money steals the show
      And all her diamonds twinkle as she dances and what's it got for me
      Hung over in my tree?
      I saw the sun shine bright in front of.....
