"King Money" as written by and Mark/fry White....
Not what you are,
But what you've earned
Where Jack-Queen-King
Money's concerned
A friend in need is a friend in debt
That kinda friend king money can forget.
May those that are full get struck dumb
When they tell the hungry of the good times
to come,
More money than sense in their defence
And cheaper jokes at our expense
So if your king is money
Then I feel sorry for you
And if you think that it's funny
Then maybe you do...
Maybe you do King Money
King Money, King Money
The Midas touch doesn't mean
That much until you're crippled with greed,
Using gold as a crutch or half a man
For half a crown for half a kingdom
For half a town
No geldt-in-my-pelt-jack,
No cash in my shack so tell me the things
That you think I lack
Just what kinda price are you willing to pay
For a holiday from the Royal Tourniquet
So if your king is money
Then I feel sorry for you
And if you think that it's funny
Then maybe you do...
Maybe you do King Money
King Money, King Money
Standing by the Xerox machine
I want to duplicate some money
Build a fortune up in black and white
But I'll need a master copy.
You're gonna give your love to me
Shake an apple off the apple tree
When she moves it's poetry
Come to me now, one, two, three
King Ka
King Ka
King King Money
Plan the perfect double murder
Maybe win the pools when I get some money
Honey, I'll be knee high in consumer
durables
Adorables...

    General CommentAbsolutely LOVE the lyrics in Beauty Stab (as well as in The Lexicon of Love). Brilliant, to say the least. And so very British.

    "King Money" taught me, at the age of 15, how shallow materialistic and money-crazy people can be. And it has stuck - I still think very little of people whose king is money and who are slaves to fashion and brands. Sadly, the world is full of materialistic people who know the cost of everything and the value of nothing.

    "So if your king is money
    Then I feel sorry for you"
