The Eagle Laughs At You

Jump inside your limousine
Run right round the world
Flash a hundred notes of green
Get yourself a girl
But all the time you're standing there
Looking like you're talking
The eagle laughs at you
Just barely walking

Run around your office block tell me what to do
Regulating life by clock, that's a lie for you

But all the time you're standing there
Looking like you're talking
The eagle laughs at you
Just barely walking

Hey, hey, hey, there's nobody who has got enough money
To pay the entrance fee to paradise
And if you haven't got enough
Then you'll find it pretty rough
After living your luxurious life

Run around your mansion with a hundred servants clean
You will never do without a million dollar dream
But all the time you're standing there
Looking like you're talking
The eagle laughs at you
Just barely walking

You know, the eagle laughs at you
Just barely walking

The eagle laughs at you
Barely walking
