Chain & The Gang – What Is A Dollar? Lyrics



(Oh, I need a dollar)

[Verse 1]
Tell me what’s a dollar? (Tell me what’s a dollar?)
A dollar is 100 cents
Tell me what’s a dollar? (Tell me what’s a dollar?)
A dollar’s how I pay my rent
Can you hear me holler? (Can you hear me holler?)
All my money’s spent
I said, can you hear me holler? (Can you hear me holler?)
Yeah, I’m getting desperate

I’ll tell you what it is if you promise
To give me one so I should live
(Oh, I need a dollar)

[Verse 2]
Well, I’m hungry and I’m thirsty (hungry and I’m thirsty)
I need to get some stuff
I said I’m hungry and I’m thirsty (hungry and I’m thirsty)
I can’t get enough

You’re gonna need it so you can survive
But you can only get it from another guy
(Oh, I need a dollar)

[Break]
I’ll tell you what a dollar is
It’s an internationally traded increment of worth
Yeah, it’s bigger than you and me
Bigger than you and me put together
It’s also called currency
The way that it works
You get your money
If you do something you don’t like to do
Something that’s abhorrent to you
Something that challenges your code of ethics
So it’s hard to get a dollar
But you know what?
You’re gonna need one one of these days
In fact, you’re gonna need more than one
You see, you’re gonna find
It’s like a drug, you can’t get enough
Because you’re gonna be wanting
Some stuff

[Verse 3]
Tell me what’s a dollar? (Tell me what’s a dollar?)
I’ll tell you what a dollar is
Tell me what’s a dollar? (Tell me what’s a dollar?)
A dollar’s how you get your friends

It’s the way they segregate
And control us, put us away
(Oh, I need a dollar)
Yeah, that’s right
(Oh, I need a dollar)
Yeah, me too!
(Oh, I need a dollar)
Yeah, I’ll do whatever I need to do!
(Oh, I need a dollar)
Yeah! Come on, help me out!

A dollar is the devil, it’s the root of all evil
I need a dollar
