Lyrics
The Thousanaire
By W. Montgomery



Verse:
I?m not an ambitious man
But I do all I can
To take good care of my family

Each day I scratch and dig
To find a paying gig
To try and build up a little security

So it was a marvelous day
When I could call my wife and say
At last, I?m a thousanaire

Chorus:
A thousanaire, a thousanaire
Most people shoot for a million but what do I care
It?s only a few zeros, after all
And who wants a gold record crowding up my wall

Verse:
To those with less modest dreams
It won?t mean a hill of beans
But I?m starting to feel a little sizzle on my steak

And to my friends on the brink of despair
I finally got somewhere
At last, I?m a thousanaire

BREAK--------------------------

Bridge:
Musician?s are the only chumps I know
Who don?t care if they work for dough
Cause they?re sure they?ll be rich and famous before too long
But for all the players who are stars
There are hundreds living in their cars
And a lot of them play better than the ones people know

Verse:
Every day I check my bank account
To see if it?s the proper amount
You know how the little people like to help themselves





And the ladies who used to just pass me by
Now have a twinkle in their eye
Cause you know how women go crazy for a thousanaire

And so what if my balance should start to fall
There once was a time when I had it all
For awhile
For awhile
For awhile, I was a thousanaire
