Makin' Music For Money

Jimmy Buffett

When I woke up this morning

I was tired as I could be

I think I was counting my money

When I should have been counting sheep

My agent he just called me

and told me what I should be

If I would make my music for money

Instead of making music for me


I said I know that this may sound funny

But money don't mean nothin' to me

I won't make my music for money, no

I'm gonna make my music for me

He said that people only buy the love songs.

Rock and roll is not too long

He said son you got to be commercial

If you want to turn the people on.

And I said turning on the people

Now that's a beautiful place to be

But if I spend my time makin' memorable rhyme

Well who's gonna turn on me?


Well now, I went up the country

And I'll tell you all about the scene

I found a place with much charm and much grace

That was untouched by the music machine

Well the people where havin' a good time

Makin' music all day long

And nobody cared if they ever got paid

One penny for playin' a song
