Money for Nothing — Dire Straits

Money for Nothing — Dire Straits

(I want my MTV)

Now look at them yo-yo’s
That’s the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain’t workin’
That’s the way you do it
Money for nothin’
And your chicks for free

Now that ain’t workin’
That’s the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain’t dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these color TV’s

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these color TV’s

I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama
She got it stickin’ in the camera
Man, we could have some fun

And he’s up there, what’s that?
Hawaiian noises?
You bangin’ on the bongos
Like a chimpanzee
Oh, that ain’t workin’
That’s the way you do it
Get your money for nothin’
Get your chicks for free

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these color TV’s

Listen here, now that ain’t workin’
That’s the way to do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain’t workin’
That’s the way you do it
Money for nothin’
And your chicks for free
Money for nothin’
And the chicks for free
Get your money for nothin’
And chicks for free
Money for nothin’
And the chicks for free
(I want my, I want my MTV)
