The Style Council

The Style Council were an English band, formed in 1983 by the ex-The Jam singer and guitarist Paul Weller, with keyboardist Mick Talbot. The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller's then-wife, vocalist Dee C. Lee. Other artists such as Tracie Young and Tracey Thorn (Everything but the Girl) also collaborated with the group. As with Weller's previous band, most of this London based outfit's hits were in their homeland, although the band did score six top 40 hits in Australia, and seven top 40 hits in New Zealand. more »

 It's no good praying to the powers that be  'Cause they won't shake the roots of the money tree  No good praying to the pristine alters  Waiting for the blessing with Holy water  They like the same old wealth in the same old hands  Means the same old people stay old people stay in command  Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  They got it wrapped up tight, they got it safe and sound  Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  As you fall from grace and hit the ground    Too much money in too few places  Only puts a smile on particular faces  Said too much power in not enough hands  Makes me think ";get rich quick; take all I can";  They're too busy spending on the means of destruction  To ever spend a penny on some real construction    Watch the money-go-round; watch the money-go-round  They amuse themselves as they fool around  Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  Do like they say, make them vulnerable    No good looking to the Empire corners,  ";Civilization"; built on slaughter  Carrying hopes and carrying maps  The spinless ones fall in their laps  The brave and the bold are the ones to be fooled  With a diet of lies by the Kipling school    Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  But I just can't help being cynical  Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  Do like I say, make me wonderful    Their morals are clean and their clear  They bend your arm and they bend your ear  Said they bend your mind as you talk in circles  Bend over forwards, this won't hurt you  Till there's blood in your lap; blood on your hands  Watch the money-go-round; watch the money-go-round  Come spend a penny, go out with a pound  Watch the money-go-round; watch the money-go-round  As you fall from grace and hit the ground    (On the money-go-round, you wanna get on but it won't slow down)    The need your votes and you know where to send 'em  Be we don't get the choice of a public referendum  On all the real issues that affect our lives  Like the USA base to which we play midwife  Take a cruise and forget this scene  Said come back later when the slates wiped clean    Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  Born of woman, killed by man  Watch the money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  Do like they pray, make it wonderful    The good and righteous sing their hymns  The crimpoline dresses who have no sins  Christians by day, killers in war  The hypocrites who know what they're fighting for  Killing for peace, freedom and truth  But they're too old to go so they send the youth    Watch the money-go-round, watch the money-go-round  I don't think he was an astronaut  Watch the money-go-round, watch the money-go-round  I must insist - he was a Socialist!    Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  They got it wrapped up tight, they got it safe and sound  Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round  As you fall from grace and hit the ground
