what he’s on is not enough
he wants even more.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He won’t sign contract
his agent pulling the strings
greed is good to him.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Fast cars and women
gold watches and tatty bling
lure the youngster in.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The love of money
is the root of all evil
so the bible says.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Money and football
a hedonistic mixture
it’s getting obscene.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Sterling an apt name
he’s got money on the mind
greedy footballer.



Reading about Raheem Sterling and his stalling over a new contract at Liverpool looks like he’s after more money elsewhere ? He says he wants to win trophies which he obviously doesn’t think then he’ll get at Anfield ? He’s only twenty and even though he’s a good player he isn’t world class yet. Methinks his agent has turned his head and money is rearing it’s ugly head here !
