Tied down with your diamond rope,
Walk by, dangle your designer robe.
It's never gonna change, you're needy,
It is money, that made you greedy.
I miss our good times, broke,
We used to say we're some folk,
That would do anything for money
To have a taste of green honey.
But you changed as quickly as we ran,
When someone emptied out their garbage can,
We used to laugh together, very poor,
Since then you replaced me with red velour
Rich at heart, when life is hard
It's like I gave you my heart's credit card,
But you spent that money on golden things
Threw out our imaginary engagement rings...
This is about a couple that suddenly became rich, but one partner neglected the other and forgot they were in poverty together.
