Clean Money

Clean Money

Elvis Costello


Who stole your thunder?

Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
That`s what I want to do
I want to spend it on you

Checking on a checkmate
Grassing on a classmate
So beautiful and fortunate
He hates to love, you love to hate
He can fix you for good
`Cause he is the neighborhood
You can`t get money for blood
Blood money for doin` no good
But they won`t take my love for tender

Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
That`s what I want to do
I want to spend it on you

Have you made your selection?
Are you ready for correction?
`Cause the wages of sin
Are an expensive infection
And it`s under the counter
Under the Geiger counter
But they won`t take my love for tender
