The Lyrics

OS lyrics on the Web are consistently inconsistent. Good version, missing a middle "love" chorus, here. Nice MIDI here.
Intro, to the opening bars of "La Marseillaise" (French National Anthem):

Since they took away my credit card,
Now I find life is... very hard

Cash, cash, cash
Cash, cache, stash
Cash, flash, splash

There's nothing that you want that can be bought
No way should you steal; you might be caught
Nothing you can swipe when you don't have the card with the stripe
Feels queasy

Nothing you can make that can't be spent
No way you can save a single cent
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to pay due on time
No freebies

All you need is cash
Yes, indeed, Ms., cash
What you bleed is cash, cash
Cash is all you need

Cash, cash, cash
White trash: cash
Hash bash: cash

All you need is cash
Pay for weed with cash
Must proceed with cash, cash
Cash is what you need

Nowhere you can go on looks alone
No place out of which you won't be thrown
Nowhere you can be that's worth a hoot and yet, is free
Believe me

Fill their greed with cash
Pay for deed with cash
Can't you read, Bud? Cash! Cash!
Cash is what you need

All I use is cash (All together, now!)
I buy booze with cash (Everybody!)
Pay for screws with cash, yeah,
Cash is all I use
Cash is all I use (cash is all I use)
Cash is what I choose (cash is what I choose)
Cash is how I cruise (cash is how I cruise)
Cash is what I ooze (cash is what I ooze)
Cash, I much diffuse (cash, I much diffuse)
Cash, I got the blues (cash, I got the blues)
Cash, I pay my dues (cash, I pay my dues)
Cash is what I lose (cash is what I lose)
Cash, I pay what's whose (cash, I pay what's whose)
Cash, they can't refuse (cash, they can't refuse)
Cash is all I use
Yee-hai!
Cash, I much abuse
Cash, in greenish hues
It's payday...
Cash, no debt accrues
Oh...
Cash, like blood transfuse
Oh, yeah!
You need cash, yeah, yeah, yeah
Pay heed: cash, yeah, yeah, yeah
Cash inside my shoes
Cash, I much misuse
Cash, they all enthuse
Cash gets rave reviews

Who were the Rutles? Who cares? This is better than their version. A fab five.

Late as usual--555--I am a tax preparer, so I can personally relate to this song
TT - January 05, 2007 - Report this comment
Below Average Dave, good, you can do mine -- and the 20 or 30 so other accounts I have to do... no apologies on arrival time; just nice that you stopped by. Global time zones -- people show up 247 :)

You did a good job writing this but i being obsessed with the Beatles can't stand this mockery towards them.
Tommy Turtle - January 11, 2007 - Report this comment
Lisa, this is a *parody* website...... Ever heard the saying, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"? Choosing a song as being worthy of parody can be a form of flattering the song as well, and not necessarily mockery. Thanks for stopping by.
Agrimorfee - January 12, 2007 - Report this comment
Lisa evidently hasn't found the multiple pages of Beatle songs on the site yet. Newbies are funny. TT, I could picture you finishing other songs in the Rutles catalog that haven't been "released". 555

Agrimorfee, maybe she was searching the Fab4 and this site popped up in the search, and... Maybe this site should have warnings: "This Website contains satire, mockery, and parody. Reader discretion advised". Then you have to click "Accept" or "Leave"... like the porn sites - I mean, the ones people have told me about :)... Thanks for VC.
