Lyrics


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)

Money for nothin' and the chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
