Too many lawyers in football
Baseball's got a few
The pitcher got a million dollars
And the quarterback he got two
The pitcher threw his arm away
And the quarterback burned his knee
And this they did so they could live the American dream

Now there are some preachers on T.V.
With a suit and a tie and a vest
They want you to send your money to the Lord
But they give you their address
'Cause all of your donations are completely tax free
God bless you all but most of all send your money

Do you really want it?
Do you really need it?
You gotta keep on grindin'
Just to try to keep it
You got no time for yourself you got more for old Jim Beam
You're goin' crazy dreamin' the American dream

Reagan is a cuttin' the budget
Makin' the Democrats scream
Says we gotta control inflation
Quit spending our money on everything
But this year's tax increase why it's the biggest in history
Round and around we go, where we stop who knows the American dream

Do we really want it?
Do we really need it?
We gotta keep on grindin'
Just to try to keep it
We got no time for ourselves and more for old Jim Beam
We're goin' crazy dreamin' the American dream
We're goin' crazy dreamin' the American dream

Hail to the chief
