Money For Nothing Lyrics

Now look at them yo-yos thats the way you do it
You play the guitar on the mtv
That aint workin thats the way you do it
Money for nothin and chicks for free
Now that aint workin thats the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys aint dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour tvs

See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy thats his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot hes a millionaire

We gotta install microwave ovesns
Custom kitchens deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour tvs

I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama, she got it stickin in the camera
Man we could have some fun
And hes up there, whats that? hawaiian noises?
Bangin on the bongoes like a chimpanzee
That aint workin thats the way you do it
Get your money for nothin get your chicks for free

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour tvs, lord

Now that aint workin thats the way you do it
You play the guitar on the mtv
That aint workin thats the way you do it
Money for nothin and your chicks for free
Money for nothin and chicks for free

Thanks Canada. You made me check out the lyrics again which reminded me how excellent this song is. Never knew it was inspired by a 'bonehead in a hardware shop' either which adds another dimension.

oingboingo, Canada can't ban a song any more than you can ban Canada. But yes, any station that follows the CBSC can't publicly broadcast certain words. Fortunately Dire Straits made alternate lyrics.

Well, the video is kind of inaproppiate, because of the part "Look at that mama, she gots it stickin it in the camera man we could have some fun.", And good thing it does not say "Faggot" inside of the song/video.
