about

Recorded live in a single take at the Barn Studios in Queensland, Australia by Mike "Beachy" Wild.

lyrics

I was talking to a rich man
He said take the money and run
I was talking to a rich man
He said take the money and run
Well money won't make you happy
But it's no fun being poor
It's gonna leave you worse off
Than you were before
Then take the money and run

I was talking to an old man
He said time ain't on your side
I was talking to an old man
He said time ain't on your side
Well time may be a healer
And I know that time flies
But what I'd love to know right now
Is it something you can buy
Take the money and run

Oh it's evil
But I need it
And I can't have no fun
Not unless I take the money and run

I was talking to the devil
He said "Son, the store is closed"
Yes, I was talking to the devil
He said "Son, the store is closed
You could say I sold out a long time again
You might say that I retired
I'm gonna put my feet up
And relax by the fire -
Take the money and run"
