Alan Parsons Project, The - Money Talks Lyrics




Money don't grow on a money tree
The more you take leave the less
for me
Money don't buy what you really
need
It make an iceman cry, it make a
stone man bleed

But when you get right down to it,
no matter who you are
It rules your life like virgin
queen
One day you might get over it, but
in the meantime
It rules the world like a green
machine

In a bank, in a box, money talks
In the black, on the rocks, money
talks, money talk

Money doesn't lose in the money
game
It drags you down like a ball and
chain
So money don't come with a
guarantee
It make a fool of you, it make a fool
of me

But when you get right down to it,
no matter what you say
It ties you down but it can set you
free
Some day you might get over it, but
in the meantime
It burns you up in the first degree

Moscow, Bangkok, money talk
Park Lane, Boardwalk, money talk

But when you get right down to it,
no matter what you try
You deal the cards, give the
wheel a spin
One day you might get over it but
everybody knows
It's heads you lose and it's tails
they win
Don't have too much to show for
it, that the way it goes
You roll the dice and they cash
you in

Pinball, jukebox, money talks
Redskins, White Sox, money talks
Billboard, cashbox, money talks

    Симпатичный альбом ,но то что он был издан в СССР как бы оттолкнуло настоящих меломанов и поклонников APP ...

    I love this song, but no fucking way. It's more like it's out of place with the others.
