Carnival World Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Off To See The Lizard

Carnival World
By: Jimmy Buffett, Roger Guth, Jay Oliver
1989
My father always said that there's no free ride
You've got to make a sacrifice
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
Before it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this carnival world
There's no free ride in this carnival world

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

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
'Fore it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this carnival world
There's no free ride in this carnival world

What's mine is mine
If it's only one thin dime
My cash was 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
Before it's taken from your hand
There's no free ride in this carnival world
There's no free ride in this carnival world
There's no free ride in this carnival world

There's no free ride
There's no free ride
There's no free ride
