lyrics

mr. rockefeller, can I borrow your suit?
got a date tonight
going out on the town
so i gotta dress right

found a hundred dollar bill
in the sewer drain
now, i could save and ration it out
but i'd rather spend it all
spend it all in one place

some sleep on the curb
i find that absurd, i sleep in the park
always knew my luck was turning
but this proves it, money's meant for burning

found myself a payphone
got me a reservation
so prepare the other patrons
for the coming of the king

cut my beard on a campbell's can
carved my name on a park bench
skinned me a rat, made me a hat
if you want to be royalty
you gotta do that


rockefeller
i've been watching you
studied your habits
every type of fork knife and spoon


hostess took one look at him
waving Franklin in his hand
she denied him at the door
you're not welcome here old man

i will sit right here until they let me in!
thought one hundred bucks could buy you anything!
i will sit right here until they let me in!
thought one hundred bucks could buy you anything!
