Or, to tell the same story another way:

You gotta earn some money,
Man with money.
He's got all the money.
He carried all his money in a little black box.
"I've squandered and I've saved."

"Did you steal my money?"
You're under his suspicion.
"It's not true, it's not true, I'm telling you,"
And lied and lied and lied and lied and lied.
It's a legal matter,
Sit in judgement of all wrong.
But it's a long, long wait until Judgement Day.

"This is a bust!
Told me lies!
Telling only lies.
Now you know that we blame you,
And I blame you.
Bring my money back!
Put the money down!"

"No surprise, I told lies.
So many, many, many lies.
Well I'm sorry,
Dreadfully sorry,
So sorry!"
"Apologies mean nothing!"

And his face was very funny
When he counted up his money
And he realised he hadn't any more.
The money's all gone.
He got nothin'

Last week, Wig.
One week to go.
Gonna take two weeks.
Turns out a sentence.
Locked doors.
With a big padlock.
Never free.
"I've been in prison.
Some prison warder knows my scream."

The Who - Who Tour Manager Admits Fraud
05 November 2010 12:06

THE WHO's former tour manager has avoided a jail sentence for an $82,500 (£55,000) welfare fraud - on condition he pays back the cash within a week.

John 'Wiggy' Wolff, who managed gigs for the rockers in the 1970s and '80s, pleaded guilty to wrongly claiming the money in state benefits between 2002 and 2008.

A court in Reading, England heard Wolff had not used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle, but had hoarded it in his bank account.

A judge gave Wolff a suspended prison sentence and ordered him to repay the money within seven days.
