Lyrics Edit

anonyMous version: Edit

We need cash.
What happened to our stash?
I bought an electric guitar
I rented a shiny car
I went out to lunch
But McDonald’s is a thrifty munch

I purchased a random flute
I hired a prostitute
Whatever will we do?
We’ll have to think it through

I know, I will start
To sell my body parts
A kidney, or a lung
My liver, or my tongue
I’ll distribute them in jars
To people driving cars

I have a better plan
I’ll marry a wealthy man
Wouldn’t that make you gay?
Not necessari-lay.
That would be okay.
What?

I’ll sleep in a separate bed
And I’ll refrain from giving… kisses
We’ll be happy for a while
I’ll try to comply to his style
And keep his mansion clean
Then I’ll kill him and inherit his green

Break it down

It wouldn’t be so tough
To sell my girlfriend’s stuff
Her computer and her sewing kit
Will go for quite a bit.
That doesn’t seem so kind.
I doubt that she will mind

We’ll start a fake foundation
A non-profit organisation
We’ll say it’s for the mute
The blind and destitute
Then we’ll get to take
The money that we make
We’ll salvage all we can
And take it to Afghanistan

Break it down

Ninjas are totally sweet
So light and nimble on their feet
So good at being bad
I wish I had a ninja for a dad (Kill him, son)

Put your money in the cup
Or this assassin will cut you up
Do not attempt to mess with me
I met a guy who met Bruce Lee!
‘s mother’s cousin’s niece’s brother’s neighbour’s doctor’s ex-boyfriend’s dog.

It won’t be hard at all
Making money with a crystal ball
According to the tarot cards
Your body will be torn to shards
The pieces spread around
Your mangled carcass never found
That’s all I’ll have to say
And then they’ll have to pay

I know, I could-
(garbled, unintelligible)

Break it down

I’ll make the money grow
With my impromptu magic show
Performing in the streets
Death-defying feats
People would shriek and shout
But that’s what magic is all about
“My god, is he alright?”
I do this every night

I’ll ace the GRE
And harvest a Ph.D
After curing the HIV
I’ll collect my royalties.
Do you think you’re bright enough?
Let’s get his girlfriend’s stuff.

Break it down

Tally Hall version: Edit

We need cash
What happened to our stash?
I bought a new guitar
I rented a classy car
I got suckered by e-mail thugs
Into cheap prescription drugs

Whatever will we do?
We’ll have to think it through

I have a word in mind
A very scary kind
I fear it every day
It starts with letter “J”
(Jam? Juggle? Job?) Job.

People, keep it calm
I’ll simply call my mom
Hello, this is your son
Our bank account is done
How much? Well there is none
She’s never any fun

Break it down

We all can live like kings
If I sell my girlfriend’s things
Her computer and her makeup kit
Will go for quite a bit.
She’ll probably go berserk!
I’ll make you look like the jerk.

I’ll ace the GRE
And harvest a Ph.D
After curing the HIV
I’ll collect my royalties.
Do you think you’re bright enough?
I’ll get his girlfriend’s stuff.

Break it down

We’ll play a simple tune
One that makes consumers swoon
We’ll infect it with contagious rhyme
To keep ‘em coming every time

A song we’ll have to play
And then they’ll have to pay

Break it down
