The Karaoke Challenge: Gold digger

It seems my Karaoke Challenge is proving successful so far, with many readers asking me to cover a song they think would be funny with my quirky twist. Whilst I’m getting all of these requests, I’ll keep up my feeble attempts to entertain until I’m travelling and too busy again.

This particular request I couldn’t resist as Kanye West has announced his run for President of America 2020, and I had to do it. Sorry.

 

Gold digger

 

Gold digger

 

 

They take my money when I’m in need

They’re a difficult friend indeed

Oh, they’re a gold digger

All over the world,

That digs on me

 

Now, I ain’t saying they’re a gold digger

They give me money, which I can’t figure

Now, I ain’t saying they’re a gold digger

But they ain’t messing with no broke figures

 

Get down Chris, get down the branch

Get down Chris, get down the branch

Get down Chris, get down the branch

Get down Chris, go HEAD DOWN!

 

Monzo the bank, met them Money 2020

With a baby Tom Blomfield as he was back then

He said, “I can tell you’re a banker by your charm

“Even so, you seem an interesting man”

“Maybe you could help with our FinTech crew”

I said no as I’m looking for THE ONE that’s true

And my banker told me you have an app they fear

And banks like Lloyds are my cheer

So I gotta take your ideas and your thoughts

And share it with them and steal the stuff you brought

 

I pulled up in my car and all the bankers got in

We all went to a place where I had to pay

For if you are messing with a bank, then you better be paid

You know why? It’s too much to borrow from them

Then I heard they got my money from bluster

In fact, I hear they mess my money with muster

But then, and then all I can say

Is that I still love them, if they pay

 

 

They take my money when I’m in need

Yeah, you’re a difficult friend indeed

Oh, you’re a gold digger

All over the world

That digs on me

 

Now, I ain’t saying they’re a gold digger

They give me money, which I can’t figure

Now, I ain’t saying they’re a gold digger

But they ain’t messing with no broke figures

Get down Chris, get down the branch

Get down Chris, get down the branch

Get down Chris, get down the branch

Get down Chris, go HEAD DOWN!
