Regina Spektor Small Bill$

His destiny was just too big to spend

So he broke it into smaller bills and change

By the time he tried to buy the things he needed

He had spent it all on loosies and weed and

He had spent it all on chips and Coca-Cola

He had spent it all on chocolate and vanilla

He had spent it all and didn’t even feel it

He had spent it all and didn’t even feel it

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

All the poets in the alley coughing up blood

And their visions and their dreams are coming up red

They can either wake up or go deeper

But it’s so dangerous to wake a deep sleeper

It’s like awakening a bear in winter

To feel the reckoning of hunger’s splinter

He’s gonna stretch his claws and feel his power

And you are gonna know your final hour

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

[x2]

Better get a head start, start running

While you were skimming from the top was sunny

But all the weather ’bout to turn real crummy

‘Cause everybody gonna want their money

Yeah, everybody gonna want their money

Better get a head start, start running

Better get a head start, start running

Cause it’s about to get so unfunny

All the poets in the alley coughing up blood

And their visions and their dreams are coming up red

They can either wake up or go deeper

But it’s so dangerous to wake a deep sleeper

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la

La la la, la la la la, la la
