​No Big 'Ting

This song is by David Lee Roth and appears on the album Your Filthy Little Mouth (1994).

Can't seem to sew a single hole in my pocket
Lord, I've tried
Yeah, money talks, I should know
Mine always says, "Goodbye"

And I know that money can't buy love
I've parked my speedboat next to some
This jungleness badboy sufferer
Yes I have

Price of an education
Least now I know it's no big 'ting
No big thing

Time for these bootheels to be wanderin'
Towards those burning sands
A genetical testimony
That white boys simply cannot dance

Can't let that little stuff trip you up
I'll take the fattest chance
And now I've got the answer
To a question no one asked

So, here's two rules I got for you
Great ones for living under
First, don't sweat the little shit
Second is, there ain't no other

Tattoos, scars and missing parts
And all the rich have ever proven
Is they are to life
What American Bandstand is to the theory of evolution

Price of an education
Least now I know it's no big 'ting
No big thing
Who needs the aggrevation
It all adds up tp no big 'ting

Stamps in my passport
Now they're polaroids and drinkin' stories
And I've got some good ones now
It's getting harder to ignore me

Now I'm believing half the reason
Just for leavin' is coming home
What'd you see and who'd ya do
And what'ya done?

I'll be lounging on the Rivera
Rivera couch that is
When you're surfin' 40 footers
You don't need no tricks

The future's looking brighter
With every beer that I pour in me
But even this I have to say
With absolute uncertainty

Too much exasperation
Least now I know it's no big 'ting
No big thing
Price of an education
Least now I know it's no big 'ting
No big thing

No big thing
No big thing

They finally tore the old schoolhouse down
Forever gone my history
Yeah, what used to be
And now when I go drivin' by
And point where I used to go to school
I'm pointing at an A&P

All I'm leavin' when it's time to go
Is my old blue jeans an' gold brass zippo
Teach in turn
All these secret things I've learned

And all I got from history
And careful how you take it
Is recognize the same mistake
Everytime you make it

Price of an education
Least now I know it's no big 'ting
No big thing
Who needs the aggrevation?
It all adds up to no big 'ting
