Gimme that gold
Straight into my hard drive
Gimme that gold
Straight into my hard drive, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm fifteen in my garden skipping
My neighbor Sue is watching me from her window
Oh, mama, did you tell Sue I'm a millionaire now, baby?
Trading that crypto
Oh yeah? No? Two!

Gimme that gold
Gimme that fire!
Gimme that gold
Gimme the fire! (Hot)

Crying on a stranger is so very soothing
I'm outside my school
My teacher took me to one side and told me I was (scum)
I left then googled "neoliberal"

Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy
Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy
Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy
Don't be afraid to make, to make money

Straight into my hard drive
Gimme that gold
Straight into my hard drive, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Non-shatter ruler, put it on the table and go "brrrrrrr"
Watch it shatter
Clearly Mom has talked to Neil with the Audi
The next morning he shouts from his door

"Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy"
"Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy"
"Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy"
"Don't be afraid to make, to make money"
"Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy"
"Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy"
"Don't be afraid to make, to make money, boy"
"Don't be afraid to make, to make money"

Gimme that gold
Straight into my hard drive
Gimme that gold
Straight into my hard drive, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

First mention of crypto I've seen in a RP-played song
bands really should put a bit of thought into album covers before printing I think 😆
these guys are so weird, and I'm liking them more and more.
I'm not quite sure why, but I'm beginning to like alt-J.  Somehow, I find the music odd, unique, a broad range of sounds that still come off as musical, an engaging meld of vocal and non-v, experimental.  Not as big swerve from the centerline as say the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Balinese gamelan bands or Tuvan throat singing.

So, just as I write this comment you play Ma Goola, with throat singing.  I was just going to mention that I liked the group you played (a day or so ago).  I wasn't able to catch the credit.  There was one throat singer that might have been the lead.  I couldn't pay full attention at the time so don't know if other throat singers were helping, but several other voices joined in on the normal singing.  There were long stretches of the throat singing that made a fine mix with whatever it was they were singing about.  The throat singing and the normalcy of the song pattern squelched my foreign language negativity.  I gave it an 8.

I likely wasn't generating the sound the way the singer was, but I sang along with the drone and plucked harmony on the bass strings of my dreadnought.
Glad to see Bill is rolling out more from this new album! Diggin' this track.

But you missed the opportunity to say something profound, like how this song is clearly about Chia farming!
