Economic recovery hasn't got to you yet? Cha-ching.
Cash Register Sound has doo wop harmonies
mixed with a Motown / R&B sense of rhythm.

Cash Register Sound
Words & Music by The Whale
© 2012 Fiat Lux! ASCAP

It's a hard life that we live in this world ain't to forgivin
You try hard just to make it then somebody else takes it

And they're selling your dreams while they're beating you down
With their smiles all ablaze, they can hear that cash register sound

It's a hard life that your livin if you're taken what they're givin
Just try hard not to follow what they want you to swallow

Cause they're selling your dreams while they're beating you down,
With their smiles all ablaze they can hear that cash register sound

Who gives a damn if we sold our souls,
We never used them much anyway
We don't give a damn what you people may say
We're gonna make big money today oh yeah
We're gonna hear that cash register sound

It's a hard life that you're livin if you take instead of givin
You think that you will make it deep inside you only fake it,

But you're selling those dreams while you're beating them down
With your smile all ablaze you can hear that cash register sound

It's a hard life that we live in but some won't be forgiven
Just try hard to remember that your soul's not legal tender

When you're selling your dreams and you're beating them down
With your smile all ablaze can't you hear that cash register sound?

don't you hear that cash register sound?

we all hear that cash register sound.

Cha-ching.
