Money for Nothing Lyrics

The song “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits, released in 1985, is a significant reflection of the 1980s. Featuring catchy guitar riffs and Sting’s memorable vocals, the track quickly became a global hit and a defining song of its time. Written by Mark Knopfler, the lyrics cleverly satirize the emergence of music videos and the commercialization of culture. The title itself, paradoxical in nature, has become a cultural phrase highlighting the perceived superficiality of modern society. The song received both commercial success and critical acclaim, winning a Grammy Award in 1986 and earning multiple MTV Video Music Awards nominations

Money for Nothing Lyrics

[Intro]

I want my, I want my MTV
I want my, I want my MTV
I want my, I want my MTV
I want my, I want my MTV

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 1]

Now look at them yo-yos, that’s the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain’t working, that’s the way you do it
Money for nothing and your chicks for free
Now that ain’t working, that’s the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, them guys ain’t dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

[Chorus]

We got to install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators
We got to move these colour TVs

[Verse 2]

See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup?
Yeah buddy, that’s his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot, he’s a millionaire

[Chorus]

Got to install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
He’s gotta move these refrigerators
Got to move these colour TVs
Looky here, look out

[Verse 3]

I should a learned to play the guitar
I should a learned to play them drums
Look at that mama, she got it sticking in the camera
Man, we could have some
And he’s up there, what’s that? Hawaiian noises?
He’s banging on the bongos like a chimpanzee
Oh, that ain’t working, that’s the way you do it
Get your money for nothing, get your chicks for free

[Chorus]

We got to install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators
We got to move these colour TVs

[Verse 4]

Listen here
Now that ain’t working, that’s the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV

Money for nothing, and your chicks for free

Get your money for nothing, chicks for free
