Dire Straits & Sting - Money For Nothing Lyrics

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the M.T.V.
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free.
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain't 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 T.V.'s.
See the little faggot with the earring and the make up
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire.
We gotta install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators we gotta move these colour T.V.'s.
We gotta install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators we gotta move these colour T.V.'s.
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 he's up there, what's that?
Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's 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 T.V.'s.
Now that ain't workin' that's the way to do it
Play the guitar on the M.T.V.
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free.
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
