Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and you're okay
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 of my stack
Money, it's a hit
Don't give me that do-goody-good bullshit
I'm in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet

Money, it's a crime
Share it fairly, but 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, away
Away, away, away

I was in the right
Yes, absolutely in the right
I certainly was in the right
I was definitely in the right, geezer was cruising for a bruising
Why does anyone do anything?
Why does anyone do anything?
I don't know, I was really drunk at the time
I was just telling him it was in, he couldn't get into number two
He was asking why it wasn't coming up on fader eleven
So after our yelling and screaming
I'm telling him why it wasn't coming on fader eleven

    General CommentThe person who said this song is a "Randian style objectivist-esque, libertarian defence" is a moron. Please stop listening to Floyd and go listen to Ki$$, I think that band will be more to your liking.

    Money is about greed. It is about the addiction we have of money and the insanity greed can bring. That is not to say they are innocent of this, but at the same time they are not positively about money and greed.

    PS: Rand was a pseudo philosopher. It is generally known among most philosophers and professors of philosophy that she had a poor understanding of the philosophy she would reference. The is/ought problem for example. Furthermore, the last thing I can see Roger Waters calling himself is an objectivist. He's described himself as socialist, his music clearly illustrates this and he constantly speaks out against imperialist interventions, which Rand supported, such as corporation theft of middle-eastern oil.
