Money TV

I remem­ber a time and a place
Where Herbie had to hide his face
All my money was spent
And I still don’t get one red cent

One black face replaced by a Base
Sown from the seeds of a white dis­grace
And money TV made it all for free
Did they really do it for you and for me?

Chor­us:
Money TV, money TV, money TV
You’re so good to me
So good to me, so good to me
Money TV, money TV, money TV
Money is your baby and you know what you breed

So this skate­board
Knew a bur­ger
Knew a soft drink
And they used to stay at home
Play­ing videos on com­puters
And they called it a life and you know what they think they were right

Money TV
Money TV, money TV, money TV
Money is your baby and you know what you breed

Dear surfers you ride as you see
Com­pute me with lead and your mer­cury
So I can eat bur­gers and live life on money TV

Mr Shirty you hide in your place
Sown from the seeds of a white dis­grace,
‘Cos money’s been spent and I still don’t get one red cent

Chor­us

Money TV
Money TV, money TV, money TV
You know what you’ve been
You know what you’ve been

Repeat to fade
