by Wilsoni Tha' Funk Masta

VERSE 1: MONEY Can get you anything you want So you can't remember all the things you got. Replace the old with new, to represent the 'real you'. But the only thing I see - is the person you are not. I don't wanna think that I'm dissatisfied, and fill the empty void with brand new stuff. Spend money on a piece of artificial pride, 'cos the problem is you'll never have enough. (Y'knowwhatI'msayin'?) CHORUS [BVS]: [Money, it rules the world] [You gotta get what you deserve] x2 BRIDGE: You gotta get some money (ah-aah) x8 VERSE 2: MONEY [MONEY] Can get you anything you need [Can get you anything you need] If you're a consumer, then they'll say that you'll succeed [say that you'll succeed, ye-eah] Y'keep on consumin' but still feel the urge to feed [feel the urge to feed] Until there's nothing left, 'cos you're Consumed by greed! [Consumed by greed] I don't need to live a life of luxury [luxury] in decadent excess and bourgoise [decadent excess and bourgoise] Accumulatin' wealth don't make no sense to me, [it don't make no sense!] Because the best of things in life, they come fo' free [freeeee] (give it to me now!, Uh!) CHORUS (ad. libs) (that's right come on!) (I said you don't need money to have a good time, uh) (Get down) (Get down to the fu-nk-y sound, mm) (Y'knowwhatI'm sayin'?) (It's the recession baby, yeah) MIDDLE-8: I don't mean to preach and hypocriticise, I shouldn't have to teach about equality - and that's the thing I most despise! You feelin' me? The enemy is apathy! (ha) Aww hell! You just go back to sleep! Everbody knows that talk is cheap! Hit me! (ad. lib the funky bit) BRIDGE VERSE 3: MONEY [MONEY] A massive lie [lie] You earn, you spend, and then you die [then you die] Diamond rings, and shiny things [shiny things] Can't take 'em to that 5 star hotel in the sky [5 star hotel in the sky] Enslaved by debt [debt] Not just the guy who lost a bet [lost a bet] But everyone! Oh come on! [Oh come on!] Please! [Please!] You think new money grows on trees? [You think new money grows on trees?] CHORUS (ad. lib.)

The Funk is not a style of music - it's an attitude!

The world's got the Placebo Syndrome, in a time of hardships, turmoil, greed and superficiality. Wilsoni is reminding folks that The Funk is relevant in the 21st Century.

The Acid Jazz has left London, so he's back in Auld Reekie trying to make sense of the world. The Jam Hard Vanguard - rallying Funkateers to a revolution of the mind!
