I'm working every hour
But I'm heading for a crash
I'm sick of living fast
And running short of cash
Tell me what's so bad about wanting to feel so good
I want a better life
And I'd like to buy one if I could
I've got my key
I've got my key to the world
Liquidity don't bother me
I've got my key to the world
They'll send me all their money
And all I have to do is sign
Living in a big way
A winner all the time
In just five golden hours
I'd bought myself a car
I sold my soul for charge plate gold
We know who you are
My key to the world
It's all too easy
Buying items on your wish list
It's easier than you think
But trying to fill the luxury gap
Has pushed me to the brink
To friends I am a legend
The man who had them beat
But to the credit agencies
I'm Mr. Obsolete, delete!
My key to the world
