Songtekst

People sure act funny
When they get a little money
Yes, they do, y'all
Sure act funny
When yhey get a little money
Yes, they do, y'all

I knowed you when lived in a hut
You made your living from the cane you cut
Now you're living on easy street
You passed me by and you don't wanna speak

People sure do holler
When they get on to a dollar
Yes, they do, y'all
Sure do holler
When they get on to a dollar
Yes, they do, man

I knowed you when you didn't have no shoes
Your whole family sang the low-down blues
Now you're grinning like a Cheshire cat
Youre pockets are so big and fat

People sure do squeal
When they get a dollar bill
Yes, they do, man
Sure do squeal
When they get a dollar bill
Yes, they do, y'all

I knowed you when you were my friend
I stuck with you through the thick and thin
You hit the numbers, then you put me down
I'm here to tell you
Change it and turn around

People sure act mean
When they get a mess of green
Yes, they do, man
Sure act mean
When they get a mess of green
Yes, they do, man

I knowed you when you didn't have a dime
We'd be together all the time
Now that you're a millionaire
You can't be found nowhere

People sure act funny
When they get a little money
Yes, they do, y'all

Sure act funny, man, when they get some money
I don't want to be around them
I'm gonna get outta this town and find me some money
What about you, man
Everybody sure act funny when they get a little money
Sure act funny
