The Lyrics

Job is plum
Gracin' magazines
We sing the crappiest pop songs
Rakin' in the green

Hey, hey it's the money
That turned us into kiddie-pop clowns
Can't stand the crap we're singing
But who'd turn the money down?

We go wherever we're told to
Do what we're told to do
There's never time to get girlfriends
Our followers? Taboo

Hey, hey it's the money
That turned us into kiddie-pop clowns
Can't stand the crap we're singing
But who'd turn the money down?

We just hafta look handsome
Dance a little, sing okay
We lack talent and rhythm
And we've got something to sell

Any time or anywhere
If ya fork enough over
Yes, we'll be goin' there

Hey, hey it's the money
That turned us into kiddie-pop clowns
Can't stand the crap we're singing
But who'd turn the money down?

(break)

Hey, hey it's the money
That turned us into kiddie-pop clowns
Can't stand the crap we're singing
But who'd turn the money down?

We just hafta look handsome
Dance a little, sing okay
We lack talent and rhythm
And we've got something to sell

Hey, hey it's the money
Hey, hey it's the money
(repeat, fade)

(extra verse added to some versions)
Hey hey it's the money
In it til the money runs out
Anything for big paychecks
We'll never turn the money down

Good parody. Did you ever see the Conan O'Brien bit where he creates his own "Boyband" to manage? They had a big hit with "Maybe, Will you be my baby"..and they even came up with the song title themselves...what geniuses.

Thanks Adam. Sounds like I missed a good bit! Wow... came up with a whole song title all by themselves? Amazing! :) :)

Very very good Melhi ! I must admit that I had Monkee records as a Child. Even the Beatles were fans of The Monkees TV Show, so they could not have been all bad.

You hit this right on the monkey! Er, money. What happens when boy bands age? See "I'm An Old Geezer"
Melhi - November 05, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Rick! I think I remember reading that one, but I'll definitely go back and double check! Maybe you could get a companion-song out of "Hey Hey We're a Hundred!" to the above. "Pension Receiver" or "Dirty Old Geezer" to Daydream Believer?
