Put The Money Down

Put The Money Down

The Who

I got lost in the back streets, trying to get here tonight,
The police were asking questions, they took me to the wrong place twice.
I even lost my passport, and I forgot my name and town,
But now I'm here by the water, put the money down.

Before I walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down,
There are bands killing chickens,
My hero's getting pushed around, 'round, 'round.

I don't know if I trust you as you try to shoot me down,
Before I walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down,
Put the money down.

It was a beautiful day in Columbus when the fences fell
But the five loaves and the fishes ain't going to be much help,
I got a hungry juggler here who wants to be at the head,
Before he walks the water he wants his bread.

Take a glass of that light brown ale and a purple pill,
If the air don't get you too sure as hell the pill will,
Oh, mommy, mommy, please may I go downtown?

He's gonna walk on the water,
Put the money down,
Put it down, before I walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down.

There are bands killing chickens,
My hero's getting pushed around, round, round,

I don't know if I trust you as you try to shoot me down,
I'm gonna walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down, down, down,
Put the money down.
In a tin cup.
