Gimme The Money

The juices appear to be flowing again, so here’s a new track waiting for the next album title and a few companions to manifest themselves.

I like like rock, so here’s a rock number about how money can’t buy you love, health and happiness – but it sure can help stave off some of live’s misery. Video courtesy of my good friend Dioclese.

They say you can’t buy happiness
No matter how much you got
But money sure helps
To stave the misery off
Surrounding yourself with nice things
Can help you to feel real fine
Just take a look at your place
Then come take a look at mine

Just gimme the money
Don’t gimme no shit
Don’t give me a hard time
‘Cos I ain’t taking it
Just gimme the money

You can keep your feelings of bon homie
They won’t pay the bills as far as I can see
It’s good to have friends
But I can live without them
‘Cos I can buy nice things whenever I like
The sorta things that make me feel alright
And I sleep real well
In my bed at night

You gotta gimme the money
That’s how I feel
Ain’t nothing like a well stuffed wallet
To get you what you need
So just gimme the money

It’s not like I think that money’s everything
A rolex or a diamond ring
Ain’t the end of the world
But you know they’re my sorta thing
There ain’t nothin’ like money
To get all the good things in life
It makes the living easy
And it makes you feel alright

They say that money can’t buy you love
And it can’t buy you happiness
But it can get you a woman
And dig you out of many a mess
I got plenty of money
Spending’s what it’s for
I’m happy with what I got
But I could always do with more

Just gimme the money
Don’t gimme no shit
Don’t give me a hard time
‘Cos I ain’t taking it
Just gimme the money
Keep it coming
I know I got a pile of it
But you can’t have too much
So just gimme the money!
