MOSE ALLISON lyrics - The More You Get

MOSE ALLISON
"The More You Get"
(Mose Allison)

The panic goes on day after day
With your cellular phone you're into the fray
The chance to make money is hard to refuse
But the more you get the more you got to lose

You're pulled by the future, you're pushed by the past
You're dreaming and scheming, you got to think fast
You want to be able to pick and to choose
But the more you get the more you got to lose

What is the reason you can't just relax
In every season you live by your fax
You're looking for answers, you're searching for clues
But the more you get the more you got to lose

The more you get the more you got to lose
It don't even matter if you paid some dues
Even a rich man can get the blues
'Cause the more your get the more you got to lose
