Lyrics

FAIRLY IN THE MONEY NOW


Tommy always said he would make it one day
Lead singer in a top show band
So with some friends and latest tunes to play
Tommy Tate and the Torpedoes began

Soon they were the rave of all the high school hops
In satin suits, all dressed to kill
Soon Tommy’s boys became Top of the Pops
But then the money came over the hill (x2)

All the cash to spend, on their girlfriends,
Howard Hughes it’s best that you’re dead
And in then their interest, and manager's request
They all bought their mansions


All the cash to spend, on their girlfriends,
Howard Hughes it’s best that you’re dead
And in then their interest, and manager's request
They all bought their mansions

Hype-notised by every part that arrived
Higher prices for indifferent songs
But nevertheless big Tommy's into success
So his Torpedoes kept plodding on
And his Torpedoes keep plodding on
