Money For Nothing

Recommended Posts

Here's a reworking of the Dire Straits classic I came up with that expresses some of my feelings as a member of the priced-out generation. I thought it fitted here as I believe it reflects the market psychology of a lot of would-be first time buyers. Hope you like it.

I want my, I want my HPC

Now look at them yo-yo's, that's the way you do it

You keep the rates low on the MPC

That ain't working, that's the way you do it

Money for nothing and the work's guilt-free

Now that ain't working, that's the way you do it

Let me tell you them guys ain't dumb

Index-linked pension and a six figure salary

Never get a blister on their thumb

We got to work to save a deposit

9-to-5 is a distant memory

We got to share or live with our parents

We don't wanna be doing this at 40

The little banker with the pinstripe and the Rolex

Yeah buddy, that's his own hair

That little banker got his own jet airplane

That little banker he's a millionaire

We got to work to save a deposit

9-to-5 is a distant memory

We got to share or live with our parents

We don't wanna be doing this at 40

Look at that, look at that

I should have learned to play at banking

I should have learned to roll the dice

Look at that MP, they got it flipping second homes all the time

When can we have some?

And he's up there, what's that? Printing press noises?

Banging on the QE like a chimpanzee

Oh, that ain't working, that's the way you do it

Get your money for nothing and the work's guilt-free

We got to work to save a deposit

9-to-5 is a distant memory

We got to share or live with our parents

We don't wanna be doing this at 40

Listen here

Now that ain't working, that's the way you do it

You keep the rates low on the MPC

That ain't working, that's the way you do it

Money for nothing and the work's guilt-free

Money for nothing and work guilt-free

Get your money for nothing, and the work's guilt-free

Money for nothing, work guilt-free

Look at that, look at that

Get your money for nothing, and the work's guilt-free

I want my, I want my, I want my HPC

Money for nothing and work guilt-free

Easy, easy

That ain't working

(Fade)

I want my, I want my, I want my HPC

Let me tell you them guys ain't dumb

Index-linked pension and a six figure salary

Never get a blister on their thumb

We've got to work to save a deposit

Another ten years might get the ten percent we need

We've got to share or live with our parents

We don't wanna be doing this at 40

The little banker with the pinstripe and the Rolex

Yeah buddy, that's his own hair

That little banker got a taxpayer bailout

That little banker he's a millionaire

We've got to work to save a deposit

Inheritance won't solve the housing Ponzi

We've got to share or live with our parents

High house prices are destroying the economy

I should have learned to play at banking

I should have learned to roll the dice

We've got to work to save a deposit

What's the point of working in this country?

We've got to share or live with our parents

High house prices are destroying the economy
