Makin' Music For Money Lyrics - Jimmy Buffett

Review The Song (0)



By: Alex Harvey
1974
When I woke up this mornin'
I was tired as I could be
I think I was countin' my money
When I should a' been countin' sheep

My agent he just called me
And told me what I should be
If I would make my music for money
Instead of makin' music for me

But money don't mean nothin' to me
I won't make my music for money
No, I'm gonna make my music for me"

He said, "The people only buy the love songs
sponsored links
Rock n' Roll and not too long"
He said, "Son you got to be commercial
If you want to turn the people on"

And I said, "Turnin' on the people
Now that's a beautiful place to be
But if I spend my time makin' them up a rhyme
Well, who's gonna turn on me?"

Repeat Chorus:

Well now I went up to Country
And I'll tell you all about the scene
I found a place with much charm and much grace
That wasn't touched by the music machine

Whoa, the people were havin' a good time
Makin' music all day long
And nobody cared if they ever got paid
One penny for playin' a song

Repeat Chorus:

Repeat Chorus:
Whoa, I know...
