Alan Cumming - Money lyrics

Album: Cabaret

EMCEE:

Money makes the world go around
The world go around
The world go around
Money makes the world go around
It makes the world go 'round

A mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound
A buck or a pound
A buck or a pound
Is all that makes the world go around
That clinking clanking sound
Can make the world go 'round

GIRLS:

Money money money money money money
Money money money money money money
Money money money money money money
Monehy money

EMCEE:

If you happen to be rich
And you feel like a night's entertainment
You can pay for a gay escapade

If you happen to be rich
And alone, and you need a companion
You can ring-ting-a-ling, for the maid
If you happen to be rich
And you find you are left by your lover
Though you moan and you groan quite a lot

You can take it on the chin
Call a cab, and begin
To recover on your fourteen carat yacht
GIRLS:

....Ooooooh
...Money
Money money money money
money money money money
....Ooooooh
...Money

....Ooooooh
...Money
Money money money money
Money money money money
....Oooooooh
...Money

EMCEE:

Money makes the world go around
The world go around
The world go around
Money makes the world go around
Of that we can be sure
Pffft on being poor

ALL:

Money money money
Money money money
Money money money
Money money money
Money money money money
Money money money money
Money money money money

EMCEE AND GIRLS: (in canon)

If you haven't any coal in the stove
And you freeze in the winter
And you curse to the wind at your fate
When you haven't any shoes on your feet
And your coaat's thin as paper
And you look thirty pounds underweight
When you go to get a word of advice
From the fat little pastor
He will tell you to love evermore
But when hunger comes a rap
rat-a-tat, rat-a-tat at the window

GIRLS:

At the window...

EMCEE:

Who's there?

GIRLS:

Hunger!

EMCEE:

Ooh, hunger!
See how love flies out the door...
For

EMCEE:

Money makes the world...
The world...
The world...
Money makes the
...go around
GIRLS:

...go around
...go around
...go around

...go around

EMCEE:

That clinking clanking sound of
Money money money money
Money money money money

EMCEE:

Get a little
Get a little
Money money
Money money
Mark, a yen, a buck
Or a pound
That clinking clanking

Clunking sound
Is all that makes the world go round

GIRLS:

Money money

Get a little
Get a little

Money money money money
Money money
Money money

EMCEE:

It makes the world go round!!
