Easy Money - Rickie Lee Jones

    There was a Joe
    Leanin' on the back door
    A couple Jills with their eyes on a couple bills
    Their eyes was statin'
    They was waitin'
    To get their hands on some easy money

    They flipped a dime
    One said " well, I'll take heads this time"
    One stepped up
    One stepped back
    One loosened her shoulder strap
    She couldn't speak,
    Her knees got weak
    She could almost taste that easy money

    There was this old black cat
    Sittin' in an old black cadillac
    The Joe smelled sweet
    She curled up at her boyfriend's feet
    She said "I got a plan
    Listen, Sam, how'd ya like to make some Easy Money ? "
    He say, "Yes! Oh Yes!
    Jus' tell me what you want me to do "
    She said, "Baby, you can trust me
    Baby, but you must be hidin' in my room
    At a quarter to two"
    Well, the cat told the boy
    "Come up to the room and play with my toy"
    But the Jill set the bait
    And she wasn't gonna sit around and wait
    But this guy was wise to all the lies
    And he flies out the door
    With the easy money

    Because there ain't no man
    Who got the money in his hand
    Who got any of that bread
    Bein' slow in the head
    The easier it looks
    The hotter it hooks
    There ain't no such thing as easy money
    We say, "Yes! Oh Yes!"
    Saturday night
    There was a terrible, terrible fight
    Between two dames who was losin' the same game
    It wasn't clear,
    But I hear somebody was lookin' for some easy money
