Songtekst

Money buys
Money buys

Hey, Miss Broadway
You're walking up and down
You got caught in the neck
By the underground

For fame and fortune
You gave your body away
And you were forced
Into action the next day

Hey, Miss Broadway
Hey, Miss Broadway
Hey, Miss Broadway
Hey, Miss Broadway

Money buys
Money buys

But your ticket for
A square yard in the sun
Buy your right of living
Far from a gun

Watch out cause if
You make a wrong deal
You'll see how it feels
You may miss out
On your next meal

Money buys
Money buys

Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it
Uh huh, I like it

The gambler won't get out
Before he's lost it all
The junkie always knows
Where to call

Hey, Miss Broadway
Is your lover's money clean
You know what I mean
Where is the connection
With the underground scene

So, so, so, so
Money buys
Money buys

Hey, Miss Broadway
Hey, Miss Broadway
Hey, Miss Broadway
Hey, Miss Broadway
