Money's Too Tight To Mention Lyrics - Simply Red

Review The Song (4)



Words and music John & William Valentine

I been laid off from work
My rent is due
My kids all need
Brand new shoes

So I went to the bank
To see what they could do
They said son - looks like bad luck
Got-a hold on you

Chorus:
Money's too tight to mention
I can't get an un-em-ploy-ment ex-ten-sion
Money's too tight to mention

I went to my brother
To see what he could do -
He said bro-ther like to help you
sponsored links
But I'm unable to
So I called on my fa-ther fa-ther
Oh my fa-ther
He said

Chorus:
Money's too tight to mention
Oh mo-ney mo-ney mo-ney mon-ey
Mo-ney's too tight to mention
I can't even qual-i-fy for my pension

We talk a-bout rea-gan-om-ics
Oh lord down in the con-gress
They're passing all kinds - of bills
From down on cap-it-ol hill - (we've tried them)

Chorus:
Money's too tight to mention
(spoken) cut-back!
Mo-ney mo-ney mo-ney mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' 'bout the dollar bill
And that old man that's over the hill
Now what are we all to do
When the mon-ey's got a hold on you?
Mo-ney's too tight to mention
Oh mon-ey mon-ey mon-ey mon-ey
Mo-ney's too tight to mention
Di-nero - mon-ey oh yeah
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey
We're talk-in' a-bout mon-ey mon-ey…..

you don't know about oppresion unless you lived under the comunist regime?

Aye right mate try coming and living in Britain or N.Ireland
then tell me about your oppresion,this brit government just make up new laws every other month,laws that most of the time DON'T suit the masses,but that don't matter they just fire away and impose it anyway,leaving families on or under the bread-line while they spend billions fighting a "war on terror",a war for the control of the world's oil,that if they never had contol of would bring terror to them,thats the only terror.

And before all this al-queada shit,they BROUGHT terror,terror to the people of N.Ireland(well the catholic side of it)by draagging fathers and sons from their bed in the middle of the night infront of their families,then taking them away to be tortured,and they talk about terrorism,ffs they are THE best at it,only difference is their is legitamised,why?BECAUSE THEY SAY SO.

here's a wee song from Ireland and a line in it say's it all
"and you dare to call me a terrorist while you look down your gun"

Missing Lyrics | Reviewer: Hank Scorpio | 2/7/12

I was a bit skeptical as to whether or not these lyrics are correct, so I just listened to the song on my computer.

At the end he sings: "I'm, talkin' about money money" four times, then he sings: "I'm talkin' about Ronnie, Ronnie" four times, then: "Did the earth move for you Nancy?" - which is the funniest line in the song, aside from CUT-BACK! lol

Reaganomics... | Reviewer: Pete | 9/17/11

Reaganomics only led to the greatest economic expansion in our lifetimes.

Yeah, things were really bad under Reagan, who turned around a flailing, disaster of an economy.

But "Simply Red" couldn't make it because of "Reaganomics" and their relatives were also too poor, likely due to "Reaganomics" because they couldn't loan the band any money.

Yeah, it was just terrible in those days with plenty of well-paying jobs, low-unemployment, the Millions of Jobs "Reaganomics" created, not to mention all those jobs nearly doubled federal income tax revenues under his two terms, and they didn't come from raising taxes, they came from expanding the tax base from all the jobs "Reaganomics" created.

I wonder what they would sing about the Boy Blunder who currently occupies the WH, who is only interested in creating one job. For himself in 2012

"Simply Red" probably couldn't afford a guitar pick under "Obamanomics"

Oh, and I love to hear how much money Reagan spent to bankrupt the USSR during the cold-war, which would likely still be expanding and costing us 10x more money had Reagan not brought down the USSR by defeating their military not in a conventional war, but by making a deal with OPEC to drop oil prices so low that it cost the USSR more money to extract their oil than they could sell it for, which was one of many straws Reagan placed on the "Camel's back" that eventually broke it.

Thanks to Reagan, the USSR fell, then the wall fell as well and Eastern Europe was free!

My Father didn't live long enough to see it, but my Mother did as both lived in Eastern Europe under the Soviet oppression and she cried with tears of joy when the wall came down.

Unless you've lived under the oppression, you wouldn't understand how brutal it was and what people lived thru under Communism and even Socialism.

So FU "Simply Red" - The Reagan era was the best in generations.

That's why he constantly polls as one of the greatest US Presidents of all-time.

Here's the proof:

http://www.gallup.com/poll/146183/americans-say-reagan-greatest-president.aspx

Where do you think the one-term empty-suit the media so adores will end up 20 years after his utter failure as President?

Probably right with Jimmy Carter where he belongs.

"Simply Red" were probably nothing more than a bunch of unemployed bums "on the dole" before they hit it big and sold Millions of Albums to all those "poor" people suffering under "Reaganomics"

An 80's song with a social comment | Reviewer: Alf Blume | 8/5/04

I love this song. It makes a sharp comment on the early 80's and makes a some fun at Ronald Reagan (and Nancy Reagan) "the old man that's over the hill" - which he was, his Alzheimer showing increasingly through in his later years as a president.

Worth hearing still; the critisism of Reagan'omics is still valid in the Bush II years . . .
