Del Amitri – Cash And Prizes lyrics

I've got cash and prizes more than a man could dream
I've got a hundred houses, some that I've never seen
I've got walls of paintings high as the Hoover Dam
I've got cash and prizes, but I don't know who I am

I've got a thousand people act on my every word
Point at the sky above me, and I own every bird
I've got a wife who holds me in her diamond-studded hands
I've got cash and prizes, but I don't know who I am

I've got buildings, I've got planes
That light the skyline with my name
I am everywhere but here
A colossus on the index, but touch the cancel key and I just disappear

I've got cash and prizes 'cause I've got the stuff it takes
I've got a Rolls-Royce running just 'cause I love the sound it makes
I've got two sons competing to be the images of me
But cash and prizes I guess is all that they can see
