I've seen the future, I can't afford it

Tell me the truth sir, someone just bought it

Say mr. whispers! here come the click of dice

Roulette and blackjacks - gonna build us a paradise

Larger than life and twice as ugly

If we have to live there, you'll have to drug me



Maybe these luxuries can only compensate

For all the cards you were dealt at the hands of fate

So tell me

Tell me! tell me! how to be a millionaire

Tell me! tell me! how to be a millionaire!



Millionaire! billionaire! trillionaire!



Hardly surprising if you might consider

Loyalties go to the highest of bidders

What's my opinion? I'd give you ten to one

Give me a million, a franchise on fun

But there are millions who often get nowhere

And there's just one secret I think you should share



Maybe these luxuries can only compensate

For all the cards you were dealt at the hands of fate

So tell me

Tell me! tell me! how to be a millionaire

Tell me! tell me! how to be a millionaire!



Who wants to be millionaire?

I do! - I don't! - I do!

Who wants to be millionaire?

I do! - I don't!



I've seen the future and I can't afford it
