Lyrics

I went to the bank just to get a little money
When he told me their requirements I started feeling funny
He said «You ain’t got a house, you ain’t got a plot»
I ain’t got a window and I ain’t got a job
But it takes a lotta blue-backs to satisfy my honey
If I could get my hands on some f-oldin' money
Well, I went to the social just to get a little pension
I was sorely in distress, I was needing some attention
They said you don’t get a copper, you don’t get a dime
That’s why I broke his jaw, that’s why I’m doin' time
But it takes a lotta blue-backs to satisfy my honey
If I could get my hands on some f-oldin' money
And then I got a letter off a lawyer in the city
It said «You gotta come and see me, boy, it really is a pity
Those savings you got — in the casino disappeared»
And he went out the window real quick, honey!
And I’ll do it all again but it may sound funny
If I could get my hands on some f-oldin' money
If I could get my hands on some f-oldin' money
Well I went to my banker just to raise a little money
He said «I'm glad to see ya», but I started feeling funny
He said «You ain’t got a house, you ain’t got a job»
I ain’t got a window and I ain’t got a plot
But it takes a lotta blue-backs to satisfy my honey
If I could get my hands on some f-oldin' money
F-oldin' money
F-oldin' money
F-oldin' money
F-oldin' money
