Lyrics



I just got paid today

Got me a pocket full of change


Said, I just got paid today

Got me a pocket full of change

If you believe like workin' hard all day

Just step in my shoes and take my pay


I was born my papa's son

When I hit the ground I was on the run

I had one glad hand and the other behind

You can have yours, just give me mine

When the hound dog barkin' in the black of the night

Stick my hand in my pocket, everything's all right


I just got paid today

Got me a pocket full of change

Said, black sheep, black, do you got some wool?

Yes, I do, man, my bag is full

It's the root of evil and you know the rest

But it's way ahead of what's second best



Songwriters: Bill Ham / Billy F Gibbons
