I only play for money, honey
Look at what this fun has done to me
It has me gunning for the country
Sky's memory and moonless
Vision copied from the bootlegs
We are out of tune so mostly tuneless

For a fee I'll fight any foe
For a fee I'll take it and go

I'll only play if [?]
Only when my lips are moving
You've been careful here to keep the tempo
Only play with money, careful
Not to trigger some reversal
And to live by an obscure example

For a fee I'll fight any foe
For a fee I'll stop any show

I know, depending on you to get this right
Depending on you to climb these heights
Depending on you, it's pay per view

Pick the path of least resistance
Over the hills and out of wisdom
And just when I thought we beat the system
I knew a gentle man of leisure
He loved to talk about his treasure
And of how he got it for a song, song, song, song

For a fee I'll right any wrong
For a fee I'll right any wrong
For a fee I'll fight any foe
For a fee I'll stop any show

I know, depending on you to get this right
Depending on you to climb these heights
Depending on you, it's pay per view

Only live for happy endings
[?] we started parting
My affinity for closing clues
Never been an opportunist
I accept the prize if I somehow surprise us all and get there soonest

I only play for money, honey
I only play with money, honey

I think I have a new workout song. {#Bananajumprope}
Only a 6.4? I think it's much better than that. A solid 8 from me.
Easy money honey.

I saw the NPs do a perfect cover of ELO's "Don't Let Me Down" many moons ago.  I was amazed and agog.

 
Amazed + Agog = Gobsmacked.

Like the new NP with Neko back. However, they do tend to drown out the singers, even Neko's powerful voice. (Realizing this is a mixed production where they could have emphasized the vocals more, but choose not to.) It's NP's style—after all, they have to balance out the insane drummer! :-)

 
They also need to sound different than a Neko album, so I'm fine with it. I love her voice at any level in the mix!

Nice tune.  Catchy.

Yes indeed.

Not bad at all! {#Smile}
Just saw them play this live last month... nicely done! 
Way cool new song by them! Bravo! I'm always looking forward to anything magical Neko does! I love her solo stuff greatly; she's Wow
I rarely tune in Sunday a.m.  Pleasantly surprised with this. A real smart toe-tapper. That's an 8. And I like Neko, but I like her a lot more with the New Porns than her own solo.

I think he meant 'ratings', not 'comments'.

Not bad for "new" music, sure beats Kiss 106.1 FM (or whatever it's called nowadays, seems all the FM stations have new names now)

I think I like the other RP offering from this album (Avalanche Alley) a bit better.

Yes, newly added - this album was only released a week or two ago; I like what I've heard from it so far.
