Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Galantis:

No Money

Length: 3:11

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

Sorry I ain’t got no money I’m not trying to be funny
But I left it all at home today
You can call me what you wanna I ain’t giving you a dollar
This time I ain’t gonna run away
You might knock me down, you might knock me down
But I will get back up again
You can call it how you wanna I ain’t giving you a dollar
This time I ain’t gonna run away (run away, run away)
This time
This time
This time
This time I ain’t gonna run, run, run, run…
Not this time
Not this time
Not this time
Not this time
Sorry I ain’t got no money I’m not trying to be funny
