I Use To Have Money One Time lyrics

I use to have money one time
By: jimmy buffett, michael utley
1983
For harrison and hunter
I had cadillacs in my future
Debutantes in my past
I made a deal with the devil for a whole lotta money
Thinkin it would last and last
But a fool and his money are bound to part
And what goes up must come down
Take my advice dont trust the roll of the dice
Keep your feet on solid ground

Chorus:
I used to have money one time
Life of adventure and crime
I used to have money one time
Lots of women and wine
But whos gonna tell a fool? whos gonna tell a fool?
Whos gonna tell a fool? that he aint cool (he aint cool!)

Now thems were hard times back in the eighties boy
People barely had enough to get by
Oh not me foot loose and fancy free
There was nothin to myself Id deny
But fellas listen to my story now
Though you have heard this tale before
Take care of your needs and watch out for you greeds
Or that wolf will be at your door

Chorus:
I used to have money one time
Life of adventure and crime
I used to have money one time
Now I aint got a dime
But whos gonna be the fool? whos gonna be the fool?
Whos gonna be the fool? still aint cool (it aint cool)

Whos gonna tell a fool? whos gonna tell a fool?
Whos gonna tell a fool? still aint cool (it aint cool)

(jimmy used to have money one time)
(bubba used to have money one time)
(jimmy used to have money one time)
(bubba used to have money one time)
(jimmy used to have money one time)
(bubba used to have money one time)
