no money lyrics – madness

she’d gotten used to the idle life
following the sun was her full-time occupation
a lesson to us all
or at least for the education
oh, but look at her now
fox-trotting the globe
with her head in the clouds

i haven’t got no money
to keep this affair afloat
and i don’t think that it’s funny
it looks like i’ve sunk my boat
but she’ll keep me dangling on and on and on

well, furs and pearls i’m trapped in your pocket
where six-foot toys stumble upon it
your high-cl*ss ways have seen better days
but to me you’ll always be
complicating, infatuating

i haven’t got no money
to keep this affair afloat
and i don’t think that it’s funny
looks like i’ve sunk my boat

i haven’t got no money
to keep this affair afloat
and i don’t think that it’s funny
it looks like i’ve sunk myboat

royal britannia
the jet-set dreams on and on
into another sun-drenched sin where
kings and queens
and jesters preen

you know, you know
i haven’t got no money
to keep this affair afloat
and i don’t think that it’s funny
it looks like i’ve sunk my boat

i haven’t got no money
to keep this affair afloat
and i don’t think that it’s funny
it looks like i’ve sunk my boat
