Hey!

I've got a bucket full of pretty green
I'm gonna put it in the fruit machine
I'm gonna put it in the jukebox
It's gonna play all the records in the hit parade

I've got a bucket full of pretty green
I'm gonna give it to the man behind the counter
He's gonna give food and water
I'm gonna eat that and look for more

This is the pretty green, this is society
You can't do nothing unless it's in the bucket

Oh no

I've got a bucket full of pretty green
I'm gonna give it in the fruit machine
I'm gonna give it in the jukebox
It's gonna play all the records in the hit parade

This is the pretty green, this is society
You can't do nothing unless it's in the bucket

And they didn't me that in school
It's something that I learnt on my own
The power is measured by the band on your fist
It's as clear as this

I've got a bucket full of pretty green
I'm gonna put it in the fruit machine
I'm gonna put it in the jukebox
It's gonna play all the records in the hit parade

This is the pretty green, this is society
You can't do nothing unless it's in the bucket

Oh no

    General CommentThat song is about having money after being really broke, in my opinion. I love the Mark Ronson version.

    I've got a pocket full of pretty green
    I'm gonna give it to the man behind the counter
    He's gonna give food and water
    I'm gonna eat that and look for more

    This is the pretty green, this is society
    You can't do nothing unless it's in the pocket
