"Moneybox" as written by Eliza Sophie Caird, Matthew Alan Prime and Timothy Daniel Woodcock....
Instead of goin' out
To dinner tonight
We can grow vegetables
Underneath our skylight

Clickin' these downloads
Everyday has it's price
We can lounge on our couch
And listen to our 45's

So take your Dollar, your Yen
Those Euros I can't spend
I won't get down with no Pounds
Never need to leave this house

Don't need your moneybox
'Cause I got lots and lots
Of what I need right here
Right here with you, my dear

Don't need a cash machine
To make our days happy
So do me a favor
Don't jingle your change sir
Happy for me, happy for you
Lovey, lovey, lovey-love

Instead of goin'
To the movies tonight
There's no shame in us playin'
Best of that Sega Mega Drive

Hand me your trousers
You got holes in your knees
It's no fuss, patch them up
Forget about that shoppin' spree

So take your Dollar, your Francs
Your Rupees, your Peso
I won't get down with no Pounds
Never need to leave this house

Don't need your moneybox
'Cause I got lots and lots
Of what I need right here
Right here with you, my dear

I know I don't need the cash machine
To make our days happy
Happy for me, happy for you
Lovey, lovey, lovey-love

Don't have your moneybox
It's not much of a loss
All that dough just goes to waste
'Cause you're worth more anyway

Don't need to travel
'Round London tonight
We can play Monopoly
Buy Mayfair in our own time

So take your Dollar, your Baht
I couldn't give a penny
That's enough, give it out
Never need to leave this house

Don't need your moneybox
'Cause I got lots and lots
Of what I need right here
Right here with you, I know

I know I don't need the cash machine
To make our days happy
Happy for me, happy for you
Lovey, lovey, lovey-love

Don't need your moneybox
'Cause I got lots and lots
Of what I need right here
Right here with you, I know

I know I don't need the cash machine
To make our days happy
Happy for me, happy for you
Lovey, lovey, lovey-love

Lovey, lovey, lovey-love
Lovey, lovey, lovey-love
Lovey, lovey, lovey-love

    General Comment"Don't jingle your change cells" should be "Don't jingle your change sir" as in don't try and tempt me with your money because there are more important things in life.

    General CommentAwesome song, especially the Jamie XX remix. Anyway I think TedB's got the right idea, specifically I think it's about being a moneyless freegan. How choosing not be sell themselves via wage earning "'cause you're worth much more anyway", and in doing so choosing to be 'poor', they're acctually having more fun doing what they want to do with their time; "don't need your cash machine, to make our days happy".
