Talking, talking wealth, talking money, talking power
Talking horses, talking fun, talking self, talking power
Talking power, talking power and talking power
Money is power, power is fame

Talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Soldiers of fortune by some other name
I'm talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Money is power, an' power is fame

Everything you pay to hear just listen
Everything to catch your ear just listen
Whatever it takes, they're ready to sell
Anything and everything they do it themselves

Talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Soldiers of fortune by some other name
I'm talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Money is power, an' power is fame

Young are the victims so easily swayed
As some given are poisoned, all continuous placed
Our conscience is a load, so heavy to carry
For a rock 'n' roll mercenary

Talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Soldiers of fortune by some other name
I'm talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Money is power, an' power is fame

Talking, talking, talking
Talking, talking, talking
Talking, talking, talking

It starts with a game, see how they play
Till all of the laughter is faded away
It's not for the song, it's not for the love
It's just for the gold and there's never enough
Never enough

Talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Soldiers of fortune by some other name
I'm talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Money is power, an' power is fame

It's not for the song, it's not for the love
It's just for the gold, it's never enough

Talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Soldiers of fortune by some other name
I'm talking about rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Money is power, an' power is fame

Rock 'n' roll mercenaries
Talking, talking, talking
Talking, talking, talking
Talking, talking, talking
Talking, talking, talking
Rock 'n' roll mercenaries oh
Talking about
