I been laid off from work
My rent is due
My kids all need
Brand new shoes
So I went to the bank
To see what they could do
They said "Son - looks like bad luck
Got-a hold on you"

Money's too tight to mention
I can't get an un-em-ploy-ment ex-ten-sion
Money's too tight to mention

I went to my brother
To see what he could do
He said "Brother like to help you
But I'm unable to"
So I called on my father, fa-ther
Oh my fa-ther
He said
"Money's too tight to mention"

Oh mo-ney mo-ney mo-ney mon-ey
Mo-ney's too tight to mention
I can't even qual-i-fy for my pension

We talk a-bout Rea-gan-on-ics
Oh Lord, down in the con-gress
They're passing all kinds of bills
From down Capitol Hill
(we've tried them)

Money's too tight to mention
Cut-back!

Mo-ney mo-ney mo-ney mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' 'bout the dollar bill
Now what are we all to do
When the mon-ey's got a hold on you?

I, like the view, still said...

actually, it's so awful and my day so far has been so crap that I don't know if I can muster up the energy to even get to the dentist

Well, I hope you have found the energy to get to the dentist and are resting peacefully now. C:)
