  • Once upon a time in the land of plenty
    The land of lawyers, guns and money
    A funny little thing we all call greed
    Brought my hometown down to its knees

    A little bit worried about the shape I'm in
    Baby needs shoes and the wallet's thin
    Got no gas or electricity
    But everybody's singin' in harmony�¢?�¦

    Sell me up, sell me down
    Be sold out sittin' here hangin' around
    Take my house, take my car
    But you can't take my seat at the corner bar
    Take my crib, take my car
    But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar

    No block party, everybody's evicted
    No street lights, no runnin' liquids
    I got no room on my credit card
    And I'm three court dates from the prison yard

    My credit score's fallen like the New York Mets
    There ain't a debt collector that ain't called yet
    They say money don't talk, it only swears
    Got me cussing in my underwear

    Sell me up, sell me down
    Be sold out sittin' here hangin' around
    Take my house, take my car
    But you can't take my seat at the corner bar
    Take my crib, take my car
    But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar

    Once upon a time in America
    The politicians went and fell outta love
    There was a raping of the common man
    And left us sittin' here without no plan

    Swimmin' through bills like Michael Phelps
    Down and out and can't get no help
    The kids are hungry
    Peepin' French Poodles
    Pickin' through dumpsters for Ramen noodles

    Standin' in line with a family to feed
    Tradin' Manhattan for Indian beads
    It's been a long time since we felt good
    Got everybody waitin' on Robin Hood

    Sell me up, sell me down
    Be sold out sittin' here hangin' around
    Take my house, take my car
    But you can't take my seat at the corner bar
    Take my crib, take my car
    But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar

    Once upon a time in America
    The politicians went and fell outta love
    There was a raping of the common man
    And left us sittin' here without no plan

    Sell me up, sell me down
    Be sold out sittin' here hangin' around
    Take my house, take my car
    But you can't take my seat at the corner bar
    Take my crib, take my car
    But I'm keepin' my seat at the corner bar
