Your Cash Ain’t Nothin’ But Trash — Huey Lewis and The News

Huey Lewis and the News -- Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash

Walking down the main drag one night
I met a fine chick that looked just right
She stopped in and I flashed my roll
I told her she could have all of my dough

She turned around and with a frown
She said, “This ain’t no circus
And I don’t need a clown”

And your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
So there ain’t no need in your hangin’ around

Just to make the hit with that chick
I tried to get a Cadillac right quick
The man at the place looked so strange
I had nine hundred bucks and some change

We disagreed, I tried to plead
He said, “I ain’t no chicken
And I don’t need your feed”

Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Then brother, you’re crawling
We passed your speed

I’m walking and countin’ my bucks
The man with the gun said, “Hands up!”
I tried to get away but I was too slow
He caught me and took all of my dough

I heard him shout, as he cut out
You really lost nothing
What you’re crying about?

Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
And he took my watch and I passed out

I woke in the arms of a big cop
Police station next stop
The judge swung his fist down, plunk plunk
“Twenty dollar fine ’cause you’re drunk”

“Dig up the dough, and you can go”
And all I had was a Buffalo!

Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
Your cash ain’t nothin’ but trash
But I’m sure, better get me some more
