Mott The Hoople — Get Rich Quick lyrics

(overend watts)

They never said when I was back in school I had ability
They pushed me on and now I'm aiming for the top and that's my prophesy
Better start backing away I got such a? On me

I wanna get rich quick (forget the rules)
I wanna take my pick (forget the rules)
About the things I want (what do you want)
I wanna get rich quick (just do one more)

I wanna laugh when you always question my validity
It may be easy for you my love but it ain't hard for me
And anyway you don't look as good as gold to me

I wanna get rich quick (forget the rules)
I wanna take my pick (forget the rules)
About the things I want (what do you want)
I wanna get rich quick (just do one more)

You see I'm tired of fighting them things my friend
'cause I always fall on my knees
There's just one thing in this life that talks
And you know it can't grow on trees

I wanna get rich quick (forget the rules)
I wanna take my pick (forget the rules)
About the things I want (what do you want)
I wanna get rich quick (just do one more)

I wanna get rich quick (forget the rules)
I wanna take my pick (just take the jewels)
About the things I want (take what you want)
I wanna get rich quick (just do it more)
