The Lyrics

Hang Seng blues,
Easy money shoguns.
Hong Kong news,
"Profit margin grows some".

Iffin' you, collect a few,
Of Kroons, Won or Yen.
Then you can take the Kroons,
And change to Won,
And back to Kroons again.
Or you can spend the Yen.

Dong, Won, Kroon,
Pesos from Manila.
Som, Tenge, Leu,
Reals from Brasilia.

Money brings us many things and
What you buy is your choice.
And the more you grow it,
Get to dealin' good,
You're drivin' a Rolls Royce.

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

Iffin' you, were to accrue,
Some Blue Chips to spend.
You could trade for Kroons,
And then to Dong,
Then Tenge and back to Yen.
Trade 'em out again.

Yuan, Pound, Krone,
Zlotys spend in Krakow.
Saigon Dong
Rubles spend in Moscow

Funding things like shiny bling just,
Like those gangsta rap boyz.
And before you know it,
You're up in da hood,
And amply stocked with toys.
Amply stocked with toys...
