Turn Me Away (Get Munny)-Lyrics. W/ “Revolution X” P.S.

If you are a young male member of a “pre-alpha-rian” generation..

The following song is one drop in the shower of destructive media messaging that Massa has kept running for ohh..ever.

It’s a sassy and sexy little diddy which had the “she-wont-like-you-unless-you-can-pull-out-gobs-of-cash-out-from–wherever-the-heck-she-thought-you-could-pull-it-out-of” message “cleverly” inserted.

I address you specifically as a youngster, because you need to know that it’s a lie. A gross exaggeration and sore misrepresentation.

Regarding pretty, smart and incredible young women.

If they do have that whole “golddigger” poser thing going on.. (not actually a member of the status driven population where it makes sense).. the selfishness and superficiality will bleed into so many more levels that it will end up with you damning your own eyes for setting themselves on her in the first place.

You can expect better, is what I’m saying..without growing up crippled by this rude sort of propaganda dogging the steps of your formative years. IF you wish to find a companion with longer term potentials, of course.


The singer is a beautiful woman with actual talent. Being in the same age group, I’m ‘honored’ that I had the privilege of watching of her star rise in front of us in the early dawn of her career.

The singers aren’t to blame for the lyrics or the direction which the entire music industry was maneuvered into for over 90 years, for the sake of driving men and women further apart.

The original intention and resulting practices is what I hope you can avoid affecting your esteem.

Or missing the jackpot opportunities which you may have pursued had it not been for hearing twenty solid years of barely more than

“you’re no good” pounding along all of the available neural pathways that you have.

It was a bogus message and a ridiculously old strategy, Honey.

Although you can’t completely control the processes re: our subconsciousness sponges, you can at least learn to set into place basic truths which can help soften or deflect the blows. Especially if they sound too good to resist moving, smiling and (still smiling) to.

Can’t lie to you, honey

Hi, I’m sunny, bunny
Don’t run from me trying to

Get away
Just stay, okay
‘Cause, Munny, I want you back
La, la, la, la

I look like a model
I’ll do what I gotta
To stay in the running
‘Cause I want your money

Give me some
I’ll be the one backstage
‘Cause, Munny, I want you back
La, la, la, la

Can’t turn me away
(Get Munny)
I believe in your heart
I’ll always want to stay

Can’t turn me away

I believe in your heart
I’ll always want to stay

Can’t turn me away
(Get Munny)
I believe in your heart
I’ll always want to stay

Can’t turn me away (Get Munny)
I believe in your heart
I’ll always, always want to stay

I’ll wait on your doorstep
‘Til you let me come in
Hey, I’ll be your best friend
Say, Munny, can you come

Out and play
I’ll stay or I’ll come back
‘Cause, Munny, I want you back
La, la, la, la

Fresher than the others
I’ll cook like your mother
I, I’ll bring the honey
You just bring the money

Fingers crossed
Behind my back
‘Cause, Munny, I want you back
La, la, la, la

Can’t turn me away
I believe in your heart
I’ll always want to stay

Can’t turn me away

Can’t turn me away
(Get Munny)
I believe in your heart
I’ll always want to stay

Can’t turn me away
(Get Munny)
I believe in your heart
I’ll always, always want to stay

Jewels, clothes and stereo
Electric particles
Down to the minimal
Tickle, tickle, before stroke

I love your solid golds
I love your pearly ball
You know that I am still
Just how you want to feel

Dropped your mind
Scooped it up
Put it in my sock

I’ll be your robot girl
Come into me, my world
It’s too Iate

Oowhee, boy, let me drive your car
I have a credit card, hey
‘Cause, Munny, I want you back
La, la, la, la

Can’t turn me away
I believe in your heart
I’ll always want to stay

Can’t turn me away (Get Munny)
(Get Munny)
I believe in your heart
I’ll always, always want to stay

Can’t turn me away (Get Munny, get Munny)
I believe in your heart (Get Munny)
I’ll always want to stay (Get Munny)

Can’t turn me away (Get Munny, get Munny)
I believe in your heart (Get Munny, get Munny)
I’ll always, always want to stay (Ladies and gentlemen, thank you)

I ain’t sayin’ I’m a golddigger
Uh, do you have that number to that other bass player?
But I ain’t messing with no broke broke

NOTE: To avoid other potential self esteem pitfalls, it helps to know that the focus hasn’t always been restricted to sexual matters or with only music.

For example, in the following (clumsily shot. no time to edit) clips of an old video game (Midway’s 1994 “RevolutionX” featuring Aerosmith by “Music is the Weapon” Productions), it can be easily seen as a couple of jabs thrown re: males “obeying” into submission and chemicals being snuck in the food. Not merely months or years from the onset of either things being discussed and mused over by the general public, but DECADES prior.

Now, if this isn’t a solid (and sarcastic) example of pure dedication in getting the job done and leaving no stones unturned, no matter how long of a time..then I don’t know what else could be.

 One could throw the “ixnay” on the “onspiracy-cay” theory, but when one considers the additional elements associated with the band’s music videos at that time, non game related…well, there’s only so much one can pretend at “not seeing”.

(Besides, it being framed in that whole “Republican-Democrat-Bloods-Crips-MSNBC-FOX-and-the-breakdancing-teams on-Electric-Booga-Loo” sort of Red and Blue color scheming..it’s kind of hard to miss.)

Just remain on guard.  So, you can better maintain your confidences and avoid unnecessary negativity, at every possible angle. That’s all.

At the very least, enough for you to not become a “willing” participant in or supporter of what could be anything, from a sneaky coercion to a full scale insult, against you and others you may care about.
