That's The Way The Money Goes

This song is by M and appears on the album New York • London • Paris • Munich (1979).

Bop, Bop, Bop
Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Wop
Bop, Bop, Bop
Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Wop

Down in the vault is the gold
Locked up ever so tight
All you've got is the paper
Under your pillow at night

Breadlines lines don't hit the headlines
Life is a hole in the pocket
The best times can be the hard times
So spend it while you've got it!

That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)

Bop, Bop, Bop
Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Wop
Bop, Bop, Bop
Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Wop

Supply and demand's the equation
X+Y=Z
The answer's always inflation
The whole damn world's in the red

Whatever goes up will come down
It ain't necessarily so
Monopoly's the name of the game
circulating the dough

That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)

Breadlines lines don't hit the headlines
Life is a hole in the pocket
The best times can be the hard times
So spend it while you've got it!

That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)

Bop, Bop, Bop
Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Wop
Bop, Bop, Bop
Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Wop

The stock market is a casino
Deutsche marks, Dollars and Yen
Where gamblers from ZUrich to Rio
Make fortunes again and again

It's Rising - It's falling - Crash!
It's too low for labour and profit
It's not so much that it's trash
It's a drug, you can't get off it

That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)

That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
That's the way the money goes
(Pop go the people)
