Money high, Money low
Money come, Money go
Don't worry me
Don't worry me (money don't buy)

The things that we like, the things that we love
The things that we have, so high above
Don't bother me (it doesn't even matter to you)
Don't bother me (money doesn't grow on trees)
Just don't worry

Now listen
Suns do shine, moons do glow
Simplicity everyone knows
Don't hurry me (I'm in the middle of a dream)
Don't hurry me (it's not at all the way it seems)

Money so high, money so low
Money to count, money to go
It won't be there where I go (where is that you*re going to?)
It won't be there where I go (where is that you*re going to?)
Just won't be there! No way

Do wop...
Da da da...

In the background:

A good evening and welcome to a party satirical broadcast
On behalf of the Labour Party, your Chancellor of the Exchequer, Dennis Healey

Money comes and money goes
Taxes are high and incomes low
But you see they don't worry me
You see it doesn't worry me at all
It doesn't worry anybody actually

For example there's an accountant called David Moss
He's an absolute ----ing disaster
But he don't worry me
In fact he worried some people in the Yes group
And a few others... not me, you see
You've all been silly billies
Complaining about high taxation
But I can tell you quite categorically
That taxation has never been a problem for me or
Michael Foot - please stop eating those baked beans
Try and deal with this immigration problem
Do please, I can't stand it, you see the nig nogs come and the rock stars go
Jobs get less and dole queues grow
They don't worry me

But let's be fair, you see I am all right
You're all in really a very difficult situation
But it don't seem to worry me at all
Now let's have a close look at the financial situation in the country and the home
And let's face the facts
I've been up to the North of England
I hear all the trouble's meant to be
And for those who are working, things are easy
And I'm convinced I'm the man who put the second four letters in the word S----horpe
You see a very good friend of mine
Who was once a PM
Well, we'll call him the PM
He's the Prime Minister, he said
"Screw anything you can," and I'm trying to do that now with the country

You see the Tories said "The housewife has never had it so good"
Well I can tell you quite categorically that my wife said she's never had it
Barbara Castle in fact has tried to look at all inflationary things on the backbench
Well she looked at me, I know
In fact next week she's going to Bangkok
Do you feel inflation in your pocket?
I know I do and I'm convinced that Pan's People are at the root of my problem
My main problem these days is that I just can't get a root
And so ends my party satirical broadcast on behalf of the Labour Party

Good Evening
