Easy Star All-Stars – Money (feat. Gary ‘Nesta’ Pine & Dollarman)

[Bong/Cough Intro]

Money, get away
Get a good job with good 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 all right 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

[Saxophone solo]

Money will make a good man bad, yah yah
Money will make ’nuff man bad, yah yah
Money will make bredren and bredren go to war
Forget about the good times
Don’t bodda let it change your ways
If you no careful it will make you lose your mind, yas!

If you worship it, destined fi a fall
Very addictive, watch, be selective
Nuh bodda sell ya soul, just fear de money
When Jah Jah come, ain’t nuttin’ funny
Cyan’t pay yuh way inna Mount Zion
Not if yah have not ’nuff love inna all ya heart my frien’, yah yas!

Nevah remember when dem used to beg a dollah
Nevah remember when dem used to dead fi hungah
Now dat dem get rich, dem gwan like big timah
Burn down de bridge dat dem cross ovah
Bwoy ya cyan rich today, and broke tomorruh
Don’t you know dat’s the way life go? Yes!

Money a money and friend a friend
Mi a not put no money before my bredren
Dem a rush in and a kill fi de dollah
Fi de love of money man a kill ‘im owna brodda

Powah is money, money is powah
Materialistically dem get cankah
It a the root of all evil
Ghetto youth, alla man – be a beggah no!
Don’t bodda mix up inna de bwoy dem suttin’
Boy if want trouble will get it, ‘pon de double
‘Pon de paypah chase, boy na watch no face
When every lickle ‘ting dem want fi done de place
Man a defend faith in dollah and cents, yah
No bodda play wit’ yuh life, yah mi friend!
Well well well – well…

Money will make a good man bad – yah yah yah yas
Money will make ’nuff man bad – yah yah yah yas
Money!

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

"HuHuh! I was in the right!"
"Yes, absolutely in the right!"
"I certainly was in the right!"
"You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for abruising!"
"Yeah!"
"Why does anyone do anything?"
"I don’t know, I was really drunk at the time!"
"I was just telling him, he couldn’t get into number 2. He was asking
Why he wasn’t coming up on freely, after I was yelling and
Screaming and telling him why he wasn’t coming up on freely
It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out"
