  • I believe whatever you say
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
    I swear upon my mother's grave
    I swear at Heaven
    Saints be praised
    I put my hand to look and pray
    As long as I know I am getting paid

    That's the way I want to be saved
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
    Whatever my word is worth in trade
    As long as I know I'm getting paid

    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money

    I lay to rest
    The bed is made
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
    In this life that matters that matters more than death
    I follow to my dying breath
    And whatever crap you may decree
    As long as I know you're paying me

    That's the way I want to be saved
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
    Whatever my word is worth in trade
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
    As long as I know I'm getting paid

    When the devil shivers off the dust
    A welcome breath like acrid dust
    I shake the hand the Lord forbade
    As long as I know I'm getting paid

    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money
    Money, money
    I'm empty
    Fill me up with some money

    And that's the way I want to be saved
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
    Whatever my word is worth in trade
    As long as I know I'm getting paid

    That's the way I want to be saved
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
    Whatever my word is worth in trade
    As long as I know I'm getting paid
