The object of the game is to buy, sell or trade property, monopoly
And soon you'll have more cash than the world has ever seen, you'll be free, like royalty
You can borrow at interest from the bank
And you'll clean up wherever you may land
Rent your houses, collect your dividends
It's the game of shrewd excitement!

Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money!

You'll bankrupt your opponents, you'll be counting all your deeds, pompously, monopoly
But one roll of the dice, the tables turn, the bubble bursts, and suddenly, insolvency
All the lenders will be coming to collect
You’ll be chained and enslaved by the debt
Even friends will come to stake their claims
By the end you'll wish you were in jail

Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money!

So here’s the bottom line, so beguiling are the bribes and schemes, monopoly
You're a token on the board, if it were chess, you'd be a pawn, you've been deceived, yes indeed
Coz there’s no real winner in this game
It’s just paper inside a paper tray
When it’s over, you leave with empty hands
Is it worth it in the end?

Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money!
