    Lyrics

    Gimme your body, gimme your mind
    Open your heart, pull down your blinds
    Gimme your love, gimme it all
    Gimme in the kitchen, gimme in the hall

    Art for art's sake, money for God's sake
    Art for art's sake, money for God's sake

    Gimme the readys, gimme the cash
    Gimme a bullet, gimme a smash
    Gimme a silver, gimme a gold
    Make it a million for when I get old

    Art for art's sake, money for God's sake
    Art for art's sake, money for God's sake

    Money talks, so listen to it
    Money talks to me
    Anyone can understand it
    Money can't be beat, oh no

    When you get down, down to the root
    Don't give a damn, don't give a hoot
    Still gotta keep makin' the loot, chauffeur driven

    Gotta make her quick as you can
    Give her lovin', make you a man
    Get her in the palm of your hand, bread from Heaven

    Gimme a country where I can be free
    Don't need the unions, buryin' in me
    Keep me in exile the rest of my days
    Burn me in hell but as long as it pays

    Art for art's sake, money for God's sake
    Art for art's sake, money for God's sake

    (Repeat....)
