Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and you’re O.K.
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 all right, Jack, keep your hands off of my stack.
Money, it’s a hit
Don’t give me that do goody good bullshit
I’m in the high-fidelity first-class traveling set
And I think I need a Learjet

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

“Ha-ha! I was in the right!”
“Yes, absolutely in the right!”
“I certainly was in the right!”
“Yeah, I was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a bruising!”
“Why does anyone do anything?”
“Why does anyone do anything?”
“I don’t know, I was really drunk at the time!”
“I was just telling him it was in, he could get it in Number Two. He was asking why it wasn’t coming up on freight eleven. After, I was yelling and screaming and telling him why it wasn’t coming up on freight eleven. It came to a heavy blow, which sorted the matter out.”


Roger Waters prepared tape loops for this song with the sounds of cash register, tearing paper and bags of coins being thrown into a bowl.
There is a version of this song where the word “bullshit” was removed by the recording company. That “clean” version is known as the “Bull Blank” version.
One verse of this song is a poem of Pink from the film “The Wall”. He was caught by the teacher writing it, and the teacher read the poem aloud to the class to Pink’s great embarrassment.
This song ends with several interview excerpts performed by Roger Waters on everyone who was in the studio at the time of recording this song.
This song was the band’s first hit in the United States reaching number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
