Gimme Money

Verse:
Some people save ev’ry penny they make
So they can buy a Coupe de Ville
Some people light fancy cigarettes
With crisp one hundred dollar bills
Some people know how to chose their parents
Some know how to use their friends
I’m waitin’ for the day when I can reach nirvana
In a brand new Mercedes Benz

Chorus
Gimme money, gimme money, gimme money
A checkbook and a fake I.D.
Gimme money, gimme money, gimme cold hard cash
That’s the only thing that matters to me

Verse:
Well, I work every day, I bring home my pay
I guess I make about enough
But I never have any left over for champagne
Or any of that other good stuff
Ev’ry time I get a raise they always raise the prices
I wind up standin’ still
I guess I’ll have to marry Mrs. Rockefeller
And be the guy that writes her will

Chorus 2:
Gimme money, gimme money, gimme money
No sum too small or too large
Gimme money, gimme money, gimme cold hard cash
A Visa and a MasterCard

Verse:
I’m an ambitious man, I’ve got nothin’ to lose
I’m gonna play a game of chance
I’m gonna play a little sleight of hand
With the sleazy wizards of finance
Yes, the object of the game is to win. win, win
And you gotta have money to play
I’ll be the CEO of an IPO
On $5,000 a day

Chorus 3:
Gimme money, gimme money, gimme money
It’s the hedge fund life for me
Gimme money, gimme money, gimme cold hard cash
And the keys to the treasury
Convertible securities
My personal financial strategy
Just give all your money to me
