Aimee Mann - You Could Make A Killing Lyrics




There is nothing that competes with habit
And I know it's neither deep nor tragic
Simply that you have to have it

So you can make a killing
So you can make a killing
So you can make a killing

I wish I was both young and stupid
Then I too could have the fun that you did
Till it was time to pony up what you bid

So you can make a killing
So you can make a killing
So you can make a killing

I could follow you and search the rubble
Stay right here and save myself some trouble
I try to keep myself from seeing double

Or I could make a killing
Or I could make a killing
Or I could make a killing

  5. Zero The Dragon

    Aimee Mann can put something very complicated into a single song. Sometimes it is hard to understand what the song represents,what the song means. And that gets me thinking. I would listen to one of her songs over and over and try to make sense of it. And I love doing that so thanks Aimee! I love you! Keep on writing!

    This song reminds me of a friend that overdosed going on twenty years ago. I left him at his house four hours before he was found dead. He had been to prison for selling cocaine but just couldn’t let go of the game. He did 3 years and got out and went right back to it. It eventually got the best of him. “So you could make a killing...” after he died I spiraled bad myself and almost followed him into the rubble. This song actually makes me sad but at the same time pulled me out of a funk by making me think of the direction I was headed. It amazes me how powerful music can be.

  7. Robert Kane

    Dead mans curve -😗

  8. Sam Loomis

    This song is so absolutely beautiful.

    Aimee Mann transcended things. 10 years ago got tix to see her in Osaka and she was...well, she was Aimee Mann. Blessed experience.

  12. 周淑芬

    There is nothing that competes with habit
    And I know it's neither deep nor tragic
    Simply that you have to have it

    So you can make a killing
    So you can make a killing
    So you can make a killing

    I wish I was both young and stupid
    Then I too could have the fun that you did
    Till it was time to pony up what you bid

    So you can make a killing
    So you can make a killing
    So you can make a killing

    I could follow you and search the rubble
    Stay right here and save myself some trouble
    I try to keep myself from seeing double

    Or I could make a killing
    Or I could make a killing
    Or I could make a killing

  13. Devin Streur

    i wish i was both young and stupid
    then i too could have the fun that you did
    till it was time to pony up what you bid

  14. Tom Leamon

    How is this song about Noel Gallagher ? She said on twitter she wrote this song about him but I don't get it... But then again this is the first time I heard it so I will have to give it another listen

  15. Mark Young

    beautiful voice. great song. cool guitar. love Cruel Intentions :)

  16. Jiggley Krowzer

    This song is so beautiful. It reminds me of the Lilith Fair. I went to it one year with my high school sweety, we had a fun day of smoking pot and hippy lesbian girly culture that has since gone VERY mainstream. RIP pre-9/11 America. Everyone needs to chill out.

  17. Dave Gregovich

    Aimee Mann is an absolute badass.

  18. Michael Everett

    Cruel Intentions will forever bring me here, Sebastian and Annette forever!!!

    I could follow you and search the rubble
    Or stay right here and save myself some trouble

  21. Brian Reed

    the guitar sounds awesome on this

    Mike Lasater

    The guitar in "all over now" from the same album is great, too. Especially the "fuzzy" solos at the end of the song

  22. Michael Johnson

    "Then it backfired" 😢

  23. Snow Fire

    Great song
