I get up early in the morning, work til nightfall
They got me working seven days a week
You don’t have money you’re you’re not long for this island
You’re going six feet underneath
When I am rich I’ll sit around all day bone idle
Sipping my aperitif
Yes it’s a jungle when you’re fighting for survival
Money is the air you gotta breathe

If I wasn’t such a poor man
It’d be a different story
Like another day is dawning
No this isn’t Jackanory
I’m gonna give you all the glory having money can bring

She’s the kind of girl who likes a man to suffer
She lifts him up and takes him down
She’s always moving on from one man to another
Tiptoes out the door without a sound
She likes to lie and change her mind like all the others
She doesn’t care to play around
But when she’s yours she is the sweetest kind of lover
Your feet won’t even touch the ground


1 2 3 4 5
Get some cash and stay alive
6 7 8 9 10
Then do it again

In her arms you’ll go from ecstasy to sorrow
Only she can make you feel like a man
She likes today but she don’t understand tomorrow
Money’s got a short attention span
