10cc - Wall Street Shuffle Lyrics

Do the Wall Street shuffle
Hear the money rustle
Watch the greenbacks tumble
Feel the Sterling crumble

You need a yen to make a mark
If you wanna make money
You need the luck to make a buck
If you wanna be Getty, Rothschild
You've gotta be cool on Wall Street

You've gotta be cool on Wall Street
When your index is low
Dow Jones ain't got time for the bums
They wind up on skid row with holes in their pockets
They plead with you, buddy can you spare the dime
But you ain't got the time
Doin' the....
Doin' the....

Oh, Howard Hughes
Did your money make you better?
Are you waiting for the hour
When you can screw me?
'Cos you're big enough

To do the Wall Street Shuffle
Let your money hustle
Bet you'd sell your mother
You can buy another

Doin' the....
Doin' the....

You buy and sell
You wheel and deal
But you're living on instinct
You get a tip
You follow it
And you make a big killing

On Wall Street

    Steely Dan & 10cc were the dominate studio bands of the '70's . Sophisticated music that still stands up.

    Daniel Leoni

    Specially when the MELLOTRON breaks!!!

    Michael Brodie

    Daniel Leoni the mellotron was notoriously susceptible to temperature changes. You're hearing proper synthesizers by the mid - 70's.

  5. Jeff O'Callaghan

    70 s music was just brilliant..10 cc were at the cutting edge .

  6. Heinz Breuer

    Einfach nur gut gemachte musik🤑on Wall Street

  7. Daniel Prohonas

    Timeless! 👍

  8. Krev Krevlin

    How true is true and real this song in relation to daily life!

    Krev Krevlin

    How true to life this song is!

    Krev Krevlin

    So much abundance of talent! They also produced the great Godley and Creme

  9. gary mccurdie

  11. Martin Mitchell

    Great group. Great track.

  12. Scott Greenwood

    Superb. Presumably written before bankers became rhyming slang. Narmean. Terrrificcc.

  13. Heinz Breuer

    Einer der besten Bands der 1970Jahre 🐃😙

  14. Francie Stewart

    I grew up in the seventies good old music of disco with my siblings dancing

  15. fredy gabriel gonzales salluca


  16. Валари Петровский

    Grand tune.

  17. Zoubeir Faouzi


  18. DJ Regnier

    Anni-Frid Lyngstad (brunette) of ABBA covered this song in Swedish. It is a trip, but OUTSTANDING!!!!

  19. Emma O'keefe

    I’m proud that I’m only 15 and I listen to this kind of music everyday :))))

    pat kiernan

    My son is the same age Emma..and he loves it too...Good music never ages...

    Michael d'amico

  27. Yogi Bär

    timeless :-)

  28. jrgboy

    Four great songwriters....

  29. nikos atsaves

    Ok,i realize this doesn't qualify as hard rock but i always felt that had more energy than most heavy tunes out there

  30. Dean Ladue

    I am still dumbfounded (in a great way!) by this number. Long live 10cc!!!🎸🎸🎸

  31. welshgirl Louise

  34. Greg Talbott

    I thought mom was freaky. turns out I was.

  35. Togo Burrows

    this song is amazingly relevant to what’s going on today even though it was written over forty years ago

  36. Owen Thackeray

    Often forgotten when they talking about great manchester bands!

  37. luis marcelo inostroza bidart

    Their sardonic humour plus an undenyable talent made them great....

  38. RealDeal441

    thanks s for uploading. The 1970s and 1980s - where song-writing and musical composition mattered! Not like today's digitized crap that you forget within 2 weeks!

  39. Jean-Marie Boucherit

    The best music is not from those mainstream mastodons like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd or this Who, this is on a much higher level

    Hubi Juniper

    no, is not. they were and are all at one level, but different stages

    Dean Ladue

    Well said! When it came to songs that had serious lyrical content, yet with their brand of sardonic humor and musicianship to match. 10cc had no equal.

    James Hadfiled

    hey buddie, that's a child's game calling names, music is for everyone.ZEP was the top of the top! 10c.c. was good but a little mouse compared to the mastodon,but that's your trip not mine

    James Hadfiled

    @Dean Ladue but did they ROCK! no. it was pop music.....pop

  40. lesley vermeir

    Deze muziek kom je niet meer tegen😊

  41. martin williams


  42. John Wervenbos

    Yes timeless...

  43. Paul Gibbett

    Best time of my life ,pubs full cheap beer ,slim girls great footy,safe to walk the streets,did I say slim girls?

    Tim Heathfield

    Paul gibbett you did say slim girls but where did you see them I'd like to know !

    Paul Gibbett

    @Tim Heathfield I hear what your saying Tim, I admit its difficult now .but when I was 20 most girls were slim, unlike today's hippos.

    teandsyrup ._.

    Paul Gibbett bang on. First week of July in a caravan in Newquay with 2 mates. This on the radio then out looking for crumpet. 18 years old n not a care in the world. 62 now with 3 teenage daughters n worried every day. 🙇

  47. Marcus Antonius

    A brilliant song here by the early 10cc, here!

  48. matrex Foxx

    I like to play this in my 1976 mark IV

    Paul Woods

    well what are u waiting for


    Great taste in cars

  49. Adam Powell

    As relevant today as when they wrote it, in fact it's quite prescient considering what happened in the 1980s.

    Kim Senior

    I have it, great songs, quality recording!

    Pablo Malaga

    2019 is 10x more fraudulent than the 80s

  50. Robert Shettle

    The good old days, when blokes looked like blokes.

    Tim O'Connor


    teandsyrup ._.

    Robert Shettle and some women looked like blokes too.


    HAhaha! Yeah, there's a lot to be read into those lines...

  51. Joe Mahoney

    Timeless story of Greed.Awesome song.

  52. Francis Muldoon

    My all-time favourite 10cc song.

  53. Steve McKenna

    Most underrated band of all time

    Martin Mitchell


  54. Frank Goodall

    So many great memories of the seventies...I am so glad I was part of it. X :)

    Hubi Juniper

    i was a bit a part of it, and i am also glad to have lived it extremely under my skin, especially the pure instrumental part, wow, it shakes me in the air, brrr

    Dean Ladue

    Compared to today, the 70s was paradise.

    Aidan Hatton

    I may have been born in the 90's but my parents introduced me to music from the 60's, 70's and 80's and I'm so glad they did.

    Ba Pete

    Chloe Delores Me too.....miss them days.....👍🇬🇧🤓

    Forget all your modern "talent" shows and listen to some real musicians. 10cc, one of the greatest bands ever!

    Mario Live Gaming

    Amen 👍

    Hubi Juniper

    you gotta be cool on wall street when your asshole life is low, then you take a train and exit, death and life in the sun

    Daniel Leoni

    Totally AGREE!

    Kristoffer Søvik

    It's ok to enjoy older music while also respecting newer artists. We won't get anywhere by only thinking backwards

  59. Bart de Haas

    A very well-crafted song!

  60. MichaeLJQ1

    Still absolutely amazing sound from pure musical genius's. Timeless.


    Yes it is.  And just as relevant today as when it was written.
