​What's In It For Me?

This song is by Hoodoo Gurus and appears on the album Purity Of Essence (2010).

What's in it for me?
You don't get nothing for free.
You stand and shake your tin,
It gets under my skin.
I might see what I can do
In another year or two.

Let me see: what's in it for me?
'Cause you don't - don't get nothing free.
Can you stop? you keep after me
But I'm not - not a charity

Now you're back again
Just like a long-lost friend
With your sorry tale of woe
But no one wants to know.
Just give us a rest!
You're making me depressed.

Gotta run, I'm a busy man
And I've done everything I can
But you keep stickin' out your hand
Pardon me, you're in disneyland

And I know you'll think it's strange,
You, I know you'll think it's strange
But I don't have any change.
So no change.

I'll tell you for free:
Don't waste your breath on me.
I've heard it all before.
Philanthropy's a bore!

Charity!
What's in it for me?
