We got more than we need

But we don't even notice

Right before our eyes

Our dreams just up and fade away

We keep givin' up more tears

And losin' hope for something better

Of pain and disappointment

We got more than we need

We got more than we need

Enough fear and confusion

To keep us busy running

Reaching out so desperately

We keep wasting our faith on illusion

Risking it all on a roll of the dice

If our past is the dreams of tomorrow

Then we're travelin' together

We got more than we need

Of old lies and deception

Hi, Maxine. Hello, Slam Dunk.

Made your quota today? [ Groans

] I had it covered by lunch.

How about yourself?

Still working on it, baby.

Still working on it.

We keep thinking the path of resistance

Is too steep Oh, why, thank you.

Gentlemen are so rare these days.

How can I ever repay you?

And we're travelin' together

We got more than we need

And we don't even know it

Oh, why, thank you.

Gentlemen are so rare

these days. How can I...

Is more than we could ever see

If working won't do

Then it should be for something better

'Cause of the things that matter

We got more than we need

We got, we got

We got more than we need

And we don't even know it

Hey, let's check these guys out.

[ Workers ] i' La migra! I' La migra!

Right before, Right before our eyes

Immigration. Let's see some I.D., huh?

I'm wearing it.

Good afternoon, madam,

I'm Sharon from Total Woman.

Good afternoon, madam. I'm Sharon

from Total Woman Cosmetics,

a new and exciting line of home beauty

aids for a new and exciting home beauty.

Yo no hablo ingles.

Her jojoba body lotion is just fabulous.

Right before our eyes

There's more than we could ever see

If working won't do

Then it should be for something better

'Cause of the things

that matter Hi, David.

We got more than we need

We got, we got

We got more than we need

[ Man 1 ] It's my move! You moved!

[ Man 2 ] It's my move!

All right, this is a bust!

[ Clock Cuckooing ]

Hello?

Hi, Maxie. Hi, Maxie.

Careful, fellas, you might spoil

me with too much attention.

How are you doing, Turtle?

I don't know.

Well, you think about it.

Oh, wait! Ho! Hey, girl, wait a minute here!

Say, you a lot of trouble for me!

You never pay anyway.

It's the principle! You're just lucky

it's on blocks and hard to tow,

or it would have been gone by now.

You're finished! Do you mind?

[ Laughs, Jumps Two Checkers ]

[ Jumps Three Men ]

Mind? No, I don't mind. [ Jumps Three Men ]

I can win now, I can win later.

I don't mind.

Say, Mr. Fix-It, can't you

keep that bitch in line?

I told ya, don't call her a bitch.

Lighten up, Fix-It.

Now bitch don't mean nothing.

I call my old lady that.

Call 'em all that. Say, bitch! Oh, oh.

See? Boardwalk, are you here on business?

Yeah.

What, a baby carriage?

You want to sell a baby carriage?

Baby carriage?

Compare this to a baby carriage,

you talking Toyota to Cadillac.

I mean, you either got a

car, or you got a ride.

We're talking chrome wire

wheels, front disc brakes.

Sure. Ten dollars.

Man, this book from 1935. The

carriage is from 1932. Here.

Garvey, you don't understand,

This old shit's comin' back.

Look here, they got a

blanket, a little pillow.

Look at the tires, they're radials.

Never wear out.

Ten. Ten?

[ Phone Ringing ] Ten.

Did you move? Answer the phone.

[ Ringing Continues ]

Hello. Mama, how you doing?

Mama, I'll be there.

It's your 90th birthday.

[ Laughs ] Sure, Mama.

No, Jerry won't be there.

Because he's dead, Mama.

He's been dead for ten years.

That's right. That's why

he wasn't there last year.
