  • Tattooed boys with expensive toys.
    Living in a bubble of sin.
    Money can buy you most of anything.
    Fix your nose or the mess your in.
    Front page news you can share your views.
    With a population that wants to be like you.
    Out on the strip. Out on the tiles.
    Same old greed behind the PR smiles.

    You and all your entourage. To me your all the same.
    You and all your entourage. Playing foolish games.

    I don't want your big city shining.
    I don't want your silver lining.
    I don't want to be a tattooed millionaire.

    He's got a wife, she ain't no brain child.
    EX mud queen of Miami.
    In his stretch cadillac, he keeps her in the back.
    With his CD player and his bottle of Jack.
    LA dude. LA Attitude. Laid back, selfish and getting fat.
    Body gaurds, Porn Stars, Gold credit cards.
    Using each other. Running for cover.

    I don't want your big city shining.
    I don't want your silver lining.
    I don't want to be a tattooed millionaire. Writer/s: BRUCE DICKINSON, JANICK GERS

  • Aliceinhell666 from Hell Town, CoCan we please actually comment something about the artist of the song here, not his ex-wife's sex partners.
  • Jovan from Mount Pleasant, MiI believe Tattooed Millionaire is actually about the LA scene in the 80's. The person in the video who depicts Nikki Sixx (allegedly), could be many people from the 80's Sunset Strip scene. Bruce has said multiple times that he and Iron Maiden play music for the creativity, not for the partying aspect of the industry.
  • Rachel from North Jersey, Njwhat a fun guilty pleasure of a song...
