Tubes – For A Song lyrics


What good is money
Unless it brings
That certain something
For the girl who's got everything
Here is an item
You can't pass by
Won't even cost you
One thin dime
I won't give up
Until you own me,
Lock me up and throw away the key
Precious possession,
Your private property
The price is right

So won't you buy me
For a song
You can have me
For a song

Just for a minute
Stand in my place
You'll understand
What I want you to say
Give me a whisper
Or give a shout
Tune me in, I'll work it out
I'll never break down
I'm maintenance free
And I come with a
Lifetime guarantee
You just can't pass up
This opportunity
Don't hesitate

'Cause if you want me
For a song
You can have me
For a song

I belong to you--hand in hand together
I belong to you--love into forever
You're the only song I need
So let your heart sing--sing for me

If you're serious
Then you can sample me
I'm nearly yours
But you know nothing comes for free
You don't need money
You have security
I'm sure you got one

You can keep me
For a song
You can have me
For a song
