LYRICS
All alone in a city of millions
So many people
Why can't we all just be friends?
When the market was up
I'm daytrading millions
Then the market went down
Now it feels like the end

I'm telling you it ain't funny
It's no joke
Out of money
Busted and broke
Somebody won't you
Throw me a line

Now give me stake, help me along
And I'll be back on my feet
It won't be long until
I'm in the money, painting the town
Ain't it funny
The ups and the downs
Somebody, somebody
The market was up
And now that it's down

I'm telling you it ain't funny
It's no joke
Out of money
Busted and broke
Somebody won't you
Throw me a line
