Gimme Your Money Please
Bachman-Turner Overdrive Lyrics


I was walking on down the alley
When a face I've never seen
Came so from deep in the darkness
And his mouth came on real mean

And I saw that he'd been liquored
And he staggered up to, you know, he staggered up to his feet
And he said, boy, you'd better move real slow
And gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please

Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
He said, gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please

Being born and raised in New York
There ain't nothing you won't see
'Cause the streets are filled with bad goings-on
And you know that's no place to be

But my car broke down in the evening
You know it just stopped stone cold
Stopped stone cold in the street
And a dirty mean man with sharp glass eyes
He said, gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please

Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
He said, gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please

Being born and raised in New York
There ain't nothing you won't see
'Cause the streets are filled with bad goings-on
And you know that's no place to be

But my car broke down in the evening
You know it just stopped stone cold
Stopped stone cold in the street
And a dirty mean man with a shotgun in his hand
He said, gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please

Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
Wasn't that strange
Wasn't that strange indeed
He said, gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please
He said, gimme your money please

I've been a BTO fan since they arrived on the scene back in the early 70's. Remember seeing them in Des Moines Iowa in 76 or 77 and they just blew the doors off the place. Music like this will live forever versus the stuff they are putting out today which will disappear within a few years. BTO rocks. I'm acestud's older bro.

I was 13 when this came out. Couldn’t get enough of BTO then, and now.

Drain Monkeys

I love this band.... masterpiece after masterpiece

TENHO 55 ANOS E VOLTEI A CURTIR ISSO . OUVIA AOS 17 / 18 ANOS.
OS VOCAIS DO FRED TURNER E DO RANDY BACKMAN SEMPRE FORAM FODA. ROCKN ROLL DA MELHOR QUALIDADE.

Mark Hagen

This is, by far, the best song ever recorded about being robbed at gunpoint.
