Ain't No Fun (Waiting Round To Be A Millionaire)

Album: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (1976)
  • The following is a true story
    Only the names have been changed
    To protect the guilty

    Well I left my job in my home town
    And I headed for the smoke
    Got a rock 'n' roll band and a fast right hand
    Gonna get to the top
    Nothing's gonna stop us, no nothing

    So if you've got the money, we've got the sound
    You put it up and we'll put it down
    If you've got the dollar, we got the song
    Just want to boogie woogie all night long
    Yeah boogie

    I got holes in my shoes
    I got holes in my teeth
    I got holes in my socks
    I can't get no sleep
    I'm trying to make a million

    And I got patches on the patches
    On my old blue jeans
    Well they used to be blue
    When they used to be new
    When they used to be clean

    But I've got a Momma whose a hummer
    Whose keeping me alive
    While I'm in the band doing drinking with the boys
    She's working 9 to 5
    She knows her place that woman

    Just you wait,
    One of these days see me driving round town
    In my rockin' Rolls Royce with the sun roof down
    My bottle of booze
    No summer time blues
    Shouting out, look at me
    In my rock 'n' roll voice

    Ain't no fun waiting 'round to be a millionaire
    Ooo it ain't no fun, waiting 'round to be a millionaire
    Do you believe me, it ain't no fun, waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    It ain't no fun, I don't care what they say
    Hangin' 'round to be a millionaire
    Drive a Rolls Royce car
    No it ain't no fun, waiting 'round to be a millionaire
    No no no no no no no no
    No ain't no fun, hangin' 'round to be a millionaire

    Said it ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun, oh no
    No it ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun, that's what I said
    Yeah it ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun, and you ain't even rich
    No it ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun, its no fun doin' this bitch

    Ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    You better believe it
    Ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    Ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    No it ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    No it ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun
    No it ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun
    It ain't nothing no fun
    Ain't no fun
    No it ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun
    Ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    No no
    Ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    Yeh it ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire
    No it ain't no fun waitin' 'round to be a millionaire

    Hey, hello Howard, how you doin'babe, next door neighbor?
    Oh yea,
    Get your fuckin' jumbo jet out of my airport
    It ain't no fun
    It ain't no fun
    It ain't no fun
    No it ain't no fun
    No ain't no fun, hangin' 'round to be a millionaire
    Ain't no fun waiting 'round to be a millionaire
    No it ain't no fun waiting 'round to be a millionaire
    Ain't no fun
    No no no no no no Writer/s: ANGUS MCKINNON YOUNG, MALCOLM MITCHELL YOUNG, RONALD BELFORD SCOTT

  • AnonymousWell back in the day in Australia you needed a fast right hand other wise U would get knocked out understood 1 Of The greatest songs of all time
  • Greg B from Van.bcMy guess for fast right hand would be for fighting or guitar playing.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjWhat does "'Got a rock 'n roll band and a fast right hand" mean?
  • James from Ottawa, OnThere is a spoken line near the end of the song, where Bon says, "Hey Howard, how you doin' baby? Oh yeah, next door neighbor... Get your f*kn' Jumbo Jet out of my airport!" Bon is referring to the billionaire Howard Hughes, with a tongue-in-cheek reference to the imaginary lifestlye of living as a millionaire.
  • Austin from Bristow, VaReminds me me of the tough times I went through during my first two years of high school.
  • Jason from Denver, CoHMMM!! Sounds like my life story.
