Money Lyrics

Money, get away
Get a good job with good pay and you're okay
Money, it's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream
Think I'll buy me a football team

Money, get back
I'm all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack
Money, it's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet

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
But if you ask for a raise it's no surprise that they're
Giving none away, away, away

1 Thoughts & Meanings

This song is so well known that nobody bothered to post anything, so I'll say something. This song is quite profound and sarcastic at the same time. Its lyrics go into the theme of the excesses of money and the greed and egoism they bring. This song is an opposition to the use of money in the capitalist society, turning people into greedy, self-centered rascals (I allow myself to stay polite). These people are always unsatisfied : once they have what they want, they want more. We can see this in this sentence "I'm in the high fidelity first class travelling set/And I think I'll need a Lear jet." There is much more to say about this song, so much more that it would take the whole day for me to finish that post. So for now I'll leave it there, go have fun reading the in-depth analyses on the Internet!
