Bachman-Turner Overdrive Gimme Your Money Please Lyrics

Last updated: 07/03/2009 11:00:00 AM

I was walking on down the alley
When a face I've never seen
Came so from deep in the darkness
And his mouth came on real mean

And I saw that he'd been liquored
And he staggered up to -- you know -- he staggered up to his feet
And he said, "Boy, you'd better move real slow
And gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."

Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
He said, "Gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."

Being born and raised in New York
There ain't nothing you won't see
'Cause the streets are filled with bad goings-on
And you know that's no place to be

But my car broke down in the evening
You know it just stopped stone cold
Stopped stone cold in the street
And a dirty mean man with a shot glass eye
He said, "Gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."

Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
He said, "Gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."

Being born and raised in New York
There ain't nothing you won't see
'Cause the streets are filled with bad goings-on
And you know that's no place to be

But my car broke down in the evening
You know it just stopped stone cold
Stopped stone cold in the street
And a dirty mean man with a shotgun in his hand
He said, "Gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."

Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
He said, "Gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."
He said, "Gimme your money please."
(Awww!)

Canadian rockers go right into Overdrive | Reviewer: Billy | 7/2/09

I have loved this song, as I have the rest of this album, since it emerged in the early '70s. Former Guess Who guitar standout Randy Bachman tapped his 2 brothers plus C.F. Turner to create Bachman-Turner Overdrive, a power-pop-to-hard-rock ensemble which went on to help shape the great rock music scene of the decade. "Gimme Your Money, Please" is a fitting kick-off number for B.T.O.'s 1st album, displaying as it does Randy's ample guitarwork, brother Tim's steady, hard-driving backbeat, and C.F.'s lusty vocals. It set the tone for a debut album which surprised many and delighted many more. It may have put Canada on the hard-rock map.
