The Lyrics

i'm among the jet-set expensive hotels
i go skiing for diversion...i am living very well
a lotta money, baby...more than you could conceive
a large sum of money...and all for me
i say...mark my words down
you know, getting ahead is no shame
i get dames...i got lots of flames
i got a broker...playing the stock market game
big money...i got lots of cash
wallet makes me waddle...better spend it fast
so rich i'm stinking...i was raised on snobbery

i got a hefty bank book, and i'm buying up some properties
yep, i'm a rich'un...the master of my treasury
i try and i try but i can't get it spent
when i find little cuties...i pay all of their rents
i'm flush beyond reason...i was raised on snobbery

i find having money, fun
take my lotus down that four lane highway
it cost me several thousand dollars
you oughta see it fly away
and i'll just spend a month in spain...if i get the itch
i can take a few guests..because i'm so damn rich
i drink fine whiskey...i was raised on snobbery

you know, i ain't good looking
i look just like the missing link
but i get the honeys...just by buying them a full length mink
my cash is flowing...i've no debts
my heart is empty, but i don't fret
life's great when you're loaded...i was raised on snobbery
