Lyrics - Ain't No Fun (Waiting Round To Be A Millionaire)

(Young, Young & Scott)

Taken from the album Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Recorded at Albert Studios, Sydney, NSW, Australia


Released in 1976

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

Uh the following is a true story
Only the names have been changed
To protect the guilty

Well I, left my job in my home town
And I headed for the smoke
Got a rock 'n' roll band and a fast right hand
Gonna get to the top
Nothing's gonna stop us no nothing

So if you've got the money we've got the sound
You put it up and we'll put it down
If you got the dollar we got the song oh
Just wanna boogie woogie all night long
Yeah boogie

I got holes in my shoes
I got holes in my teeth
I got holes in my socks
I can't get no sleep
(I'm tryin' to make a million)
And I got patches, on the patches
On my old blue jeans
Well they used to be blue
When they used to be new
(When they used to be clean)
But I've got a momma, who's a hummer
Just keepin' me alive
While I'm in the band doin' drinkin' with the boys
She's working 9 to 5
(She knows her place that woman)
(Just you wait)
One of these days see me driving round town
In my rock 'n' Rolls Royce with the sun roof down
My bottle of booze
No summer time blues
Shouting out : "Look at me"
In my rock 'n' roll voice

No it ain't no fun, eh yeah, waiting round to be a millionaire
No it ain't no fun, waiting round to be a millionaire
Do you believe me ?
It ain't no fun, no, waiting round to be a millionaire
It ain't no fun, I don't care what they say, waiting round to be a millionaire
And drive a Rolls Royce car
No it ain't no fun, and you know it, waiting round to be a millionaire, eeh eh
No no no no no no no, no it ain't no fun, waiting round to be a millionaire

Aaah
Got a million dollar scream
Well it ain't no fun, ain't no fun, oh no
No it ain't no fun, ain't no fun, that's what I said
Well it ain't no fun, ain't no fun, and I wanna be rich
No it ain't no fun, ain't no fun, ain't no fun digging this ditch
Ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire, you better believe me
Ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire, ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire
No it ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire
Ooh it ain't no fun, ain't no fun, no it ain't no fun, ain't no fun
I ain't having no fun, ain't no fun, no it ain't no fun, ain't no fun
Ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire, no no
Ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire, ooh ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire
No it ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire

"Hey, hello Howard how you doin' friend, next door neighbour ?
Oh yeah, get your fucking Jumbo Jet outta my airport !"

Ain't no fun waiting round to be a millionaire
[repeat]
