Story behind the song
With the economy being plagued by gougers, wage stagnation, supply-chain issues, and change being held hostage by gop obstructionists, the vast majority of Americans suffer from too little money and not enough time. The national minimum wage of $7.25 an hour has forced more and more workers to take second jobs in order to survive, leaving workers with too little money or not enough time. A national minimum wage increase is desperately needed.
Lyrics
Too Little Money, Not Enough Time 2022 Reggie Miles Too little money not enough time I can't seem to balance this crazy rhyme When I'm rich in one I'm poor in the other That's the story of my life I'm a tellin' you brother Too little money not enough time Too little money not enough time I work hard t’ make my way It keeps me busy every day Don't do much when I get home Just try to rest my weary bone But when my work’s in short supply I often sit and wonder why Don’t mind the extra time on my hands But without any money I can’t make plans Too little money not enough time Can't seem to balance this crazy rhyme When I'm rich in one I'm poor in the other That's the story of my life I'm a tellin' you brother Too little money not enough time Too little money not enough time Too little time and not enough money I know this rhyme may sound kind o’ funny But when you’re stuck with one or the other You ain’t goin’ nowhere brother Too little time not enough money Too little money not enough time Just like spinnin’ wheels caught in a mire I can’t move ahead to my desire So I can balance this crazy rhyme Of too little money, not enough time Too little money, not enough time I can't seem to balance this crazy rhyme When I'm rich in one I'm poor in the other That's the story of my life I'm a tellin' you brother Too little money, not enough time Too little money, not enough time So, I patiently wait for a change in the tide A good samaritan to offer a ride So I can balance this crazy rhyme Of too little money, not enough time Too little money, not enough time I can't seem to balance this crazy rhyme When I'm rich in one I'm poor in the other That's the story of my life I'm a tellin' you brother Too little money, not enough time Too little money, not enough time Too little money, not enough
