Lyrics:

[Chorus]
I’ve got the brains, you’ve got the looks
Let’s make lots of money
You’ve got the brawn, I’ve got the brains
Let’s make lots of…

[Verse 1]
I’ve had enough of scheming
And messing around with jerks
My car is parked outside
I’m afraid it doesn’t work
I’m looking for a partner
Someone who gets things fixed
Ask yourself this question:
Do you want to be rich?

[Chorus]
I’ve got the brains, you’ve got the looks
Let’s make lots of money
You’ve got the brawn, I’ve got the brains
Let’s make lots of money

[Verse 2]
You can tell I’m educated
I studied at the Sorbonne
Doctored in mathematics
I could have been a don
I can program a computer
Choose the perfect time
If you’ve got the inclination
I have got the crime
[Bridge]
Oh, there’s a lot of opportunities
If you know when to take them
You know, there’s a lot of opportunities
If there aren’t you can make them
Make or break them

[Chorus]
I’ve got the brains, you’ve got the looks
Let’s make lots of money
Let’s make lots of

[Interlude]
Money

[Verse 3]
You can see I’m single-minded
I know what I could be
How’d you feel about it?
Come and take a walk with me
I’m looking for a partner
Regardless of expense
Think about it seriously
You know it makes sense

[Chorus]
Let’s make
(Got the brains, got the looks)
Let’s make lots of money
(Money)
(Let’s make)
You’ve got the brawn, I’ve got the brains
(Ooh)
Let’s make lots of money
(Money)
[Chorus]
I’ve got the brains, you’ve got the looks
(Got the brains, got the looks)
Let’s make lots of money
(Ooh money)

[Outro]
Money

  1. I got shocked by seeing Neil Tennant on keyboards back then. Made me understand these guys arrived to stay for an expanded period in the music scene. Simply a jewel.

  2. In this phase, a producer needed badly. And a composer, I mean someone who put things in the right order. If it wasn't for Stephen Hague (was that the name of Please producer?)… I don't think I would buy this song, in this composition I wouldn't put in my house even for free.

  3. It's amazing how the technology has moved on so fast. Almost half million usd expended that time in 1986 putting on stage synthesizers, sequencers, keyboards, computers, programming software, speakers, microphones, hiring a sonidist. Now, 2020, Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant recorded another version of "West End Girls" absolutely in lockdown, isolated one each other and only using a Mac, mixing software and midi keyboards (¿2 thousand dollars?). Even is teorically possible replicate many of those sounds with an ipad (2 hundred dollars?). Obviously that voice is unique, also that classic Yamaha and Emulator II, but I'm only speaking about the tech evolution in music.
