Money, get away
get a good job with more pay and you're O.K.
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 alright, Jack, keep your hands off my stack
money, it's a hit
don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class travelling set
and I think I need a Lear jet

Money, it's a crime
share it fairlybut 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 rise it's no surprise that they're
giving none away, away, away

    General CommentWhat a sweet cover!!! I wish this was on "Contraband". It's on the soundtrack for "Italian Job" I think though.

    General CommentHoly crap, Scott Weiland, what are you doing?? Don't get me wrong, I love 'Contraband,' and am eagerly awaiting the next album, but this song, and also 'Come On, Come In,' are not that great. The original of this song is amazing, but what did you do to it? You slowed it down too much, Slash's wah-wahing doesn't do anything to improve it, and you actually sound stoned while singing it! What were you thinking?
