Carnival World - Jimmy Buffett

Carnival World
--------------
by Jimmy Buffett, Roger Guth and Jay Oliver

My father always said that there's no free ride
You've got to make a sacrifice
With so many prophets on the Lord's side
Even your soul has got a price
But talk is cheap
It takes money to buy your freedom
And the tax man's knockin' on your door

Chorus:
Spend it while you can
Money's contraband
You can't take it with you when you go
Spend it while you can
Befoer it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this carnival world

Too many hawkwe on this traveling show
Everybody's got something to sell
Bootleg Swatches, cardboard Gucci gear
Watch your step at the wishing well

What's mine is mine
It's only one thin dime
My cash has always meant to flow

Chorus:
Spend it while you can
Money's contraband
You can't take it with you when you go
Spend it while you can
Befoer it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this carnival world

But talk is cheap
It takes money to buy your freedom
And the tax man's knocking on your door

Chorus:
Spend it while you can
Money's contraband
You can't take it with you when you go
Spend it while you can
Befoer it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this carnival world
