LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
Nourish, cherish, liquorice
I'm not a quitter, I'm a fighter and I live for it
Short skirts, long legs, chocolate
Not skinny but a woman and I live for it
Quiet, bang, popcorn
Not loud but I sing and I live for it
Men, suits, drumsticks
Keep failing to impress so let's try it again
Keep failing to impress so let's try it again
Keep failing to impress so let's try it again

[Verse 2]
Chainless, nameless, candyfloss
In the game, no money but I live for it
She's a dream, she's a queen
Love style, no style but I live for it
Places, faces, rainbow drops
Keep moving, keep losing and I will not stop
Drink, dance, I'm up all night
Hate the feeling in the morning but I'll do it again
Hate the feeling in the morning but I'll do it again
Hate the feeling in the morning but I'll do it again

[Chorus]
They say it's all 'bout money, well I've tried so hard
But I've got no money so I guess I've failed so far
But I've got chocolate coins and candy cars
And I've got my flying saucer, take me up to Mars
They say it's all 'bout money, well I've tried so hard
But I've got no money so I guess I've failed so far
But I've got chocolate coins and candy cars
And I've got my flying saucer, take me up to Mars

[Verse 3]
Moon, stars, flying saucers
Feeling tired but I'm wired, yeah, I'm high for it
Work, work, work
Going nowhere, going somewhere, yeah, I drive for it
Not skinny but a woman and I strive for it
In the game, no money but I'd die for it
Men, suits, drumsticks
Keep failing to impress so let's try it again
Keep failing to impress so let's try it again
Keep failing to impress so let's try it again
Nourish, cherish, liquorice
I'm not a quitter, I'm a fighter and I'd die for it

[Chorus]
They say it's all 'bout money, well I've tried so hard
But I've got no money so I guess I've failed so far
But I've got chocolate coins and candy cars
And I've got my flying saucer, take me up to Mars
They say it's all 'bout money, well I've tried so hard
But I've got no money so I guess I've failed so far
But I've got chocolate coins and candy cars
And I've got my flying saucer, take me up to Mars
