about

Ever wonder how that nebbishy investment banker pushing a stroller on Jane Street landed that hot Eastern European model for a wife? Easy – it's a fair exchange. This is the part where Black lays it on the line for Queenie: his cold cash for her loose change. Will she accept his indecent proposal? Well, it IS a fair exchange...

lyrics

His face was tan and his teeth were sparkling white
Oh oh
His pretty hands had never seen a fight
Oh no

She was the kind his type would never date
Oh no
‘Cause perfect lips don’t make a perfect mate
Oh no

When he looked in her eyes all that he saw
Was an invitation
And when she looked at his watch all that she saw
Was negotiation

Let’s go, let’s go
Go to bed love
Cold cash meets loose change
I know I know
What you need love
It’s a fair exchange

And now they look like they’re moving in a trance
Oh oh
Desire making them laugh and drink and dance
Oh oh

A couple of drinks could lubricate
But never hide
That big black hole that can’t be filled
Inside

Let’s go, let’s go
Go to bed love
Cold cash meets loose change
I know I know
What you need love
It’s a fair exchange

You know
There is nothing sexier
Than a hundred dollar bill
Against hot, white flesh
I know you agree

Let’s go, let’s go
Go to bed love
Cold cash meets loose change
I know I know
What you need love
It’s a fair exchange

Let's go, let's go
Go to bed love
Cold cash meets loose change
I know I know
What you need love
It's a fair exchange
