lyrics

I'm trying really hard but it's just no good,
I am on the straight whiskey, lord I'm bypassing food
Oh God, why did the devil Choose me x2

I'm swallowing drink, like the droughts about
I'm catching fish, like the sea is running out
Oh God, why did the Devil choose me x2
It's all about the money

It's all about how much you have to spend to get the money
And I've already spent my dole
So I'll take this to the stage, see if I can earn wage, through rock n roll, country and soul
Oh God, why did the devil choose me x2
It's all about the money

Oh what a sight, under the big bright shiny lights
She dances like she sings and she's mine tonight
Oh God, why did the devil choose me x2

I'm not like the others, my sisters and my brothers
I keep my kisses for under the covers
Oh God, why did the devil choose me x2
It's all about the money

It's all about how much you have to spend to get the money
And I've already spent my dole
So I'll take this to the stage, see if I can earn wage, through rock n roll, country and soul
Oh God, why did the devil choose me x4
It's all about the money

With a sincere mix of dark story telling wrapped in the strong vocals of Owen and Orla, the funky bass addition from Russ Li-Nesbitt and some banging drum beats, it's hard not to find yourself thinking country music's not so bad afterall. ... more
