    Lyrics

    It's no good praying to the powers that be 'Cause they won't shake the roots of the money tree No good praying to the pristine alters Waiting for the blessing with Holy water They like the same old wealth in the same old hands Means the same old people stay old people stay in command Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round They got it wrapped up tight, they got it safe and sound Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round As you fall from grace and hit the ground Too much money in too few places Only puts a smile on particular faces Said too much power in not enough hands Makes me think ";get rich quick; take all I can"; They're too busy spending on the means of destruction To ever spend a penny on some real construction Watch the money-go-round; watch the money-go-round They amuse themselves as they fool around Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round Do like they say, make them vulnerable No good looking to the Empire corners, ";Civilization"; built on slaughter Carrying hopes and carrying maps The spinless ones fall in their laps The brave and the bold are the ones to be fooled With a diet of lies by the Kipling school Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round But I just can't help being cynical Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round Do like I say, make me wonderful Their morals are clean and their clear They bend your arm and they bend your ear Said they bend your mind as you talk in circles Bend over forwards, this won't hurt you Till there's blood in your lap; blood on your hands Watch the money-go-round; watch the money-go-round Come spend a penny, go out with a pound Watch the money-go-round; watch the money-go-round As you fall from grace and hit the ground (On the money-go-round, you wanna get on but it won't slow down) The need your votes and you know where to send 'em Be we don't get the choice of a public referendum On all the real issues that affect our lives Like the USA base to which we play midwife Take a cruise and forget this scene Said come back later when the slates wiped clean Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round Born of woman, killed by man Watch the money-go-round; watch your money-go-round Do like they pray, make it wonderful The good and righteous sing their hymns The crimpoline dresses who have no sins Christians by day, killers in war The hypocrites who know what they're fighting for Killing for peace, freedom and truth But they're too old to go so they send the youth Watch the money-go-round, watch the money-go-round I don't think he was an astronaut Watch the money-go-round, watch the money-go-round I must insist - he was a Socialist! Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round They got it wrapped up tight, they got it safe and sound Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round As you fall from grace and hit the ground
