They say I make too much money, to fit in my pocket
Everyone wants to but no one can top it
I meet more people in a week on the line
Than one man can dream of in his whole lifetime

Can you understand, I'm an average man
Tryin' to make a livin' do the best that I can
Can you understand, I'm an average man
But my name is in lights, lights, lights

They stop and stare at our houses and farms
They settled for less, we reached for the stars
They're wishin' not workin' and that's not the way
For what comes too easy is thrown away
