The Who - Put The Money Down lyrics

I got lost in the back streets, trying to get here tonight
The police were asking questions, they took me to the wrong place twice
I even lost my passport, and I forgot my name and town
But now I'm here by the water, put the money down

Before I walk on the water
Put the money down, down, down
There are bands killing chickens
My hero's getting pushed around, 'round, 'round

I don't know if I trust you as you try to shoot me down
Before I walk on the water
Put the money down, down, down
Put the money down

It was a beautiful day in Columbus when the fences fell
But the five loaves and the fishes ain't going to be much help
I got a hungry juggler here who wants to be at the head
Before he walks the water he wants his bread

Take a glass of that light brown ale and a purple pill
If the air don't get you too sure as hell the pill will
Oh, mommy, mommy, please may I go downtown?

He's gonna walk on the water
Put the money down
Put it down, before I walk on the water
Put the money down, down, down

There are bands killing chickens
My hero's getting pushed around, round, round

I don't know if I trust you as you try to shoot me down
I'm gonna walk on the water
Put the money down, down, down, down, down
Put the money down
In a tin cup
