Pink Floyd: Money




















Lyrics By: Roger Waters
Recorded: June 1972 to January 1973: Abbey Road Studios: London
Released: June 23, 1973 
Album: Dark Side of the Moon
Label: Harvest EMI (UK); Harvest Capitol (USA)


From: Live 8 Concert: July 2, 2005.
The main Live 8 concert was held at Hyde Park, London, England, on July 2, 2005, in front of over 200,000 people. The event is also referred to as Live 8 London or Live 8 UK. The concert coincided with a G8 summit in Scotland. The concert's theme was: Make Poverty History.

This concert marked the first time in 24 years that Pink Floyd performed together. The complete foursome had not appeared together since the show at Earls Court in London on June 17, 1981. With the death of keyboardist Richard Wright in 2008, Live 8 became the final time the four members of the band's classic lineup of the late 1960s and 1970s performed together.

Money
By Pink Floyd
Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and you're okay
Money, it's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I'll buy me a football team

Money get back
I'm alright Jack keep your hands off my stack.
Money it's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class travelling set
And I think I need a Lear jet

Money it's a crime
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie
Money so they say
Is the root of all evil today
But if you ask for a rise it's no surprise that they're
giving none away
