Cash Counter

lyrics

I’ve got a pocket full of cash but that cash won’t last
I’ve got bills to pay and pay real fast
heading to the bank is the morning task
one simple thing that i’ve gotta do
starts off early at the back of a queue
I take my money out and examine it through
Every fold and tear I start to review
I straighten each note with the tips of my fingers
I get to the machine that usually hinders
Insert my card anticipation lingers
Hoping it takes it all is a little ambitious
The drawer opens up and I insert my stash
It shuts and counts in a sudden dash
Opens up again with rejected cash
Don’t stressed just try and relax
I’m only paying my bills and my council tax

Won’t you take my money, My money
Won’t you take my money, My money

I take my money out what the fuck is this?
trying to tell me this note was ripped
it’s in two halves and now I’m pissed
I’m twenty quid down and I’m in the shit
I need to grab an assistant and grab one quick
The note was fine before I insist
I need to pay it in or I’ll get bank charges
And pay it in quick before my debt enlarges

Won’t you take my money, My money
Won’t you take my money, My money

I can pay it in at the desk
Just fill in this form and they’ll do the rest
Join another cue to add to the stress
can’t wait to get myself out of this mess
I filled in the form but I had to ask it
why waste paper when the machine takes plastic
this waste of time seems so drastic
All I get is a look like I’m been sarcastic

Won’t you take my money, My money
Won’t you take my money, My money
