"Breadfan" as written by and Jorn Burke Shelly Anthony Bourge....
Breadfan
Open up your mind
Open up your purse
Open up your vault
Never, never gonna lose it

Breadfan
Take it all away
Never give an inch
Gotta make a mint
Gotta make me a million

Breadfan
You got it wrong
Some long time friend's gonna lose it
In the end who's a fool

Seagull
Give it all away
Stay a bird
Stay a man
Stay a ghost
Stay what you wanna be

Loser
Give it all away
Never stay with the winner
With the man
With all the filthy money

Come on
Keep it on the side
With a ride
On a record on the top
If you're gonna be a bad boy

Breadfan
You got it wrong
Some long time friend's gonna lose it
In the end who's a fool

Seagull
Give it all away
Stay a bird
Stay a man
Stay a ghost
Stay what you wanna be

Breadfan
Open up your mind
Open up your purse
Open up your bones
Never, never gonna lose it

Breadfan
Take it all away
Never give an inch
Gotta make a mint
Gotta make me a million

Breadfan
You got it wrong
Some long time friend's gonna lose it
In the end who's a fool

Seagull
Give it all away
Stay a bird
Stay a man
Stay a ghost
Stay what you wanna be

Mommy, where's Fluffy?

    General CommentThis song rocks. It's clearly about a poor person, a 'breadfan', trying to get up in the world financially speaking, but there's plenty of obstacles.

    Some vague pharses in there and it's interesting how it switches to someone saying 'all the money in this world, and I don't need it'.

    General CommentI've never heard the metallica version either. But I just love their songs and especially the singin is what I enjoy Good stuff indeed and I hope never to get to listen the metallica version 'cause I can just think in my mind how much it would suck
