Make your money with a suit and tie
Make your money expert advice,
Make your money with a power ply
Make it lie as long as you mean it
I'm not king of comedy,

Make it holy illumination
Don't forget to ask for mercy
Make it easy with product placement
I'm straight, I'm queer, I'm bi
I'm not king of comedy,
I'm not your television
Make your money, make it rich
Make your money on the jukebox, baby,
Make your enemies, make your moves
Make it smart and make it schmooze

I'm not your magazine,
I'm not your movie screen
I'm not commodity
I'm not commodity
I'm not commodity
