The Land of the Bottom Line - John Gorka

    I couldn't bribe a wind 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

    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 responsibility
    Trading the maybe for the sure

    [Repeat Refrain]

    All I ever wanted was to be a kid at 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

    [Repeat Refrain]
