lyrics

TIME AIN'T MONEY
by Joe Palen

Well, I think it's kinda funny
when they say that "time is money"...
Means they want you to work all day,
even though they don't pay that way.

Well, I think it's kinda crazy
when they say that you are lazy...
Just because you have a life
and you'd like to know your wife.

Well, I've got just one thing to say
to "the man" who'd like to spoil my day...
reach in my pocket and take my time away...

Time ain't money!
(You can't save time)
Time ain't money!
(You can't save time)
Time ain't money!
(Free time is mine)
Time ain't money!

Everybody takes a lickin'
when the time-clock is a-tickin'.
But when the whistle blows,
it's out the door we go.

`Til they try intimidation
or some phony intimation...
Getting us to work for free,
saying we're like family.

Well, I got just one thing to say
to "the man" who'd like to spoil my day...
reach in my pocket and take my life away...

Time ain't money!
(You can't save time)
Time ain't money!
(You can't save time)
Time ain't money!
(Free time is mine)
Time ain't money!

Time ain't money!
(You can't save time)
Time ain't money!
(Free time is mine)
Time ain't money!
(Don't want to work for free)
Time ain't money!
(You ain't my family)
Time ain't money!
(You can't save time)
Time ain't money!
Time ain't money!
Time ain't money!

As a child, The Beatles inspired me to play guitar. In my teens, I wrote my first songs. And then I rushed to the studio to record my debut album... at the age of 48.
