    'The Money's Arrived' is a song about payday for us wage-slaves.

    It was written in collaboration with poet David Bateman (www.publishingnorthwest.co.uk/author/39), with whom I have worked on several tracks, including 'Scorpion Farm' (http://goo.gl/KTGQh) and 'You Blister My Paint' (http://goo.gl/huOtK). ;

    The money’s arrived

    I’ve been staying indoors for what seems like a year
    I’ve been waiting on wage clerks, but now look what’s here
    I can make a splash
    Cos the money’s arrived
    I can pay in cash
    Now the money’s arrived
    And all those things for which I’ve strived –
    I can buy them now, cos the money’s arrived

    Do this, do that, and don’t be late –
    But when it comes to pay, they make you wait
    But I’ve got off the hook
    Now the money’s arrived
    I’m well out of schtuck
    Cos the money’s arrived
    And all those things for which I’ve striven –
    I can buy them now, cos the money’s arriven

    Ninety-nine of the time, I feel like a slave
    But this is the one, now the money’s arrave
    I can take myself out
    The money’s arrived
    It’s the end of a drought
    The money’s arrived
    And all those things for which I’ve strove –
    I can buy them now, cos the money’s arrove

    I can go to the bar
    Now the money’s arrived
    And my pocket’s a star
    Now the money’s arrived
    And all those things for which I’ve strived –
    I can buy them now, cos the money’s arrived
