The F-oldin Money

'F-Oldin' Money' by Tommy Blake(Recco, 1959)

And then....zoom....40 years later.... same problems....

'F-Oldin' Money' by The Fall, from The Marshall Suite (Artful, 1999)

"Well i went to see the Welfare man to try to get a pension,
'coz now i was sorely pressed & i was needing some attention,
He said "You don't qualify-you don't get a dime",
Thats when I broke his Jaw, Thats Why I'm doin' time
And i'd do it all again
Though it may sound funny
Tryin' to get my hands on some F-oldin' money...."
-Tommy Blake (1931-1985)
