Gun Money

Give me a pound,
I'll make you sound
Just like a Rolls Royce on a summer's day.
Give me a dollar,
I'll make you sound
Just like a very expensive car.

In any case:
I'm a dead end face,
That's what I am.
In any case:
Dead end face,
No life to speak of.
Gun money;
All my money's gone.
Gun money;
Every cent is done.

Give me a dollar,
I'll make you holler
Like a bag full of cats.
Give me a dollar,
I'll make you sound just like your belly's full of rats.

A dead end case,
A dead end face,
That's what I am.
Dead end case;
Dead end face,
No life to speak of.
Gun money;
All my money's gone.
Gun money;
All my money's done.

Give me a coin,
I'll turn it each and every single day.
Give me a coin,
I'll never give myself away.

In any case:
I'm a dead end face,
That's what I am.
Dead end case;
Dead end face;
No life to speak of.
Gun money;
'Cause all your money's gone.
Gun money;
All your money's done.

Give me a pound of flesh,
I'll make you sound
Just like a Rolls Royce on a summer's day.
Give me a dollar,
Or I might just blow
Your head away.

In any case:
I'm a dead end face,
That's what I am.
A dead end face,
I'm a dead end face,
I got no car.

Gun money;
All your money's gone.
Gun money;
All your money's gone.
Gun money;
All your money's gone.

Take me, I take, they need, I take,
Gun money, gun money, gun money...

Keep taking it away,
Just keep taking it away,
Gun money...

The lyric of this song gives the impression of having been written at gunpoint.
