Money Lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1: David Gilmour]
Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay, and you’re okay
Money, it’s a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash

[Refrain]
New car, caviar, four-star daydream
Think I’ll buy me a football team

[Verse 2: David Gilmour]
Money, get back
I’m alright, Jack, keep your hands off of my stack
Money, it’s a hit
Ah, don’t give me that do-goody-good bullshit

[Refrain]
I’m in the hi-fidelity first class travelling set
And I think I need a Learjet

[Saxophone Solo]
[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3: David Gilmour]
Money, it’s a crime
Share it fairly, but don’t take a slice of my pie
Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today

[Refrain]
But if you ask for a rise, it’s no surprise that they’re giving none away

[Outro: David Gilmour]
Away, away, away
Away, away, away
Away, ooh…

— Yeah, I was definitely in the right; that geezer was cruising for a bruising!
— Yeah!
— Why does anyone do anything?
— I don’t know, I was really drunk at the time…
— I was just telling him it was in, he could get it in number two. He was asking why it wasn’t coming up on fader eleven. After, I was yelling and screaming and telling him why it wasn’t coming up on fader eleven. It came to a heavy blow, which sorted the matter out….
