The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
Monopoly, Monopoly, I reel when I throw the die
Monopoly, Monopoly, I’ll tell you the reason why
Monopoly, Monopoly, I'm watching my wheelbarrow
Monopoly, Monopoly, land all where I lose my dough
Monopoly, Monopoly, I’m biting off all my nails
Monopoly, Monopoly, there’s nothing good left for sale
Monopoly, Monopoly, one prop’ty is only mine
Monopoly, Monopoly, Baltic-y tenement dive

Once you’re behind, winning is hard-pressed
Ten dollars won in beauty contest
Do not pass Go, beg bank to borrow
Broke an’ can’t buy; renting, renting, ‘vancing to Boardwalk again!

Monopoly, Monopoly (oh swear swear yeah yeah...)
Monopoly, Monopoly (Boo hoo Ventnor - he owns it)
Monopoly, Monopoly
Monopoly, Monopoly

Monopoly, Monopoly, pastime of a bygone age
Monopoly, Monopoly, I’m seething with board game rage
Monopoly, Monopoly, for rent, they hold out their hand
Monopoly, Monopoly, a hotel on Boardwalk? Damn!

Income Tax fines, screwed by the Chance thence
Free Parking’s fine – sitting’s no offence
Land on the cop, jail time with Bubba
No doubles thrice: least I - don’t pay - no rent while I’m in the slam...

You better believe it
Do not pass Go
Boo-hoo...

Or’ental he owns it
St. Charles he owns it
Kentucky he, oh f**kit he
I’m debtor and-grie-e-e-e-e-e-iev-in’

Wishing that I knew some karate
Then I could smash opponent’s scottie
Do not pass Go! – Bye-bye to dollars
Rival, he thrives: Reading, Shortline, Pensyl Vania
BaltO Hio - wish he’d get hit by a train...

Only one comment ? I'll fix that! We had the British version and me and my brother ALWAYS fought... Great game, great job! I used to always be the iron for some reason :P

I LOVED this game as a child. I was always the Scottie dog and I am happy to see it got a mention!!

I tended to use the racing car, but only because it was the one least likely to fall over. Like mandamoo, as an Aussie, we had the British version as well. In fact, for a long time I was convinced that it was THE original!!!

I favored the iron or the guy on the horse. My mother always used the scottie. I used to stand it on it's nose.
