(I want my MTV)

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV 
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
 Money for nothin' and your chicks for free

Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
 Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb
 Maybe get a blister on your little finger
 Maybe get a blister on your thumb 

We gotta install microwave ovens
 Custom kitchen deliveries 
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these color TV's

We gotta install microwave ovens
 Custom kitchen deliveries 
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these color TV's

I shoulda learned to play the guitar 
I shoulda learned to play them drums 
Look at that mama she got it stickin' in the camera 
Man, we could have some fun

And he's up there, what's that? Hawaiian noises?
You bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee 
Oh, that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin' get your chicks for free

We gotta install microwave ovens
 Custom kitchen deliveries 
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these color TV's

 Listen here, now that ain't workin' that's the way to do it
You play the guitar on the MTV 
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
 Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
 Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Get your money for nothin' and chicks for free
 Money for nothin' and the chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
 Money for nothin' and the chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
