The band grew out of Justin Currie's Jordanhill College School band and came together after teenager Currie placed an advertisement in the window of a music store asking for people who could play to contact him. … more »

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

Cash and prizes
Cash and prizes
Cash and prizes
Cash and prizes

Cash and prizes
Cash and prizes
Cash and prizes
(Cash and prizes)
Cash and prizes
