You don't have to talk all night
You don't have to twist my arm

Take me to the track
I've been working all my life
Let me call my wife so I can tell her I'll be late
I want the easy
Easy money
Oh, things could go right
I want the easy
Easy money
Maybe tonight
You don't have to try too hard
I don't need an invitation

Take me to the fights
Roll me like the dice
When you're counting on a killing
Talk me into losin' just as long as I can win
I want the easy
Easy money
Oh, I never had
I want the easy
I want the good life

You say I fool myself
I got a hot slot machine of a system

I got a one-track mind
I'll either come back a bum or a king

I'm a man who can't say no
Just point me where you want to go
Take me to the power
Take me to the cleaners

Something's got to break
Me to take
I want the easy
Easy money
Things could go right
I want the easy
Easy money
Oh maybe tonight
Easy money
I just want the easy money
