#Tattooed Millionaire

Tattooed Millionaire” is the first single from Bruce Dickinson’s debut solo album, Tattooed Millionaire.

The album project began when Dickinson was asked to record a song for the fifth Nightmare on Elm Street movie, which became the song called “Bring yourDaughter…to the Slaughter”. Collaborating with future Iron Maiden guitarist Janick Gers, Dickinson began to make a solo album which was fundamentally different from his works with Iron Maiden, sounding much more rock-oriented. “Bring your Daughter…” was not included on the original album but Iron Maiden later recorded a different version that was included on their 1990 album No Prayer for the Dying, which coincidentally became the band’s only number one single to date.(see album at wiki)

The single was released on 11 April 1990. “Tattooed Millionaire” reached number 18 on the UK charts.

lyric:

Tattooed boys with expensive toys.
Living in a bubble of sin.
Money can buy you most of anything.
Fix your nose or the mess your in.
Front page news you can share your views.
With a population that wants to be like you.
Out on the strip. Out on the tiles.
Same old greed behind the PR smiles.
You and all your entourage. To me your all the same.
You and all your entourage. Playing foolish games.

I don`t want your big city shining.
I don`t want your silver lining.
I don`t wanna be a tattooed millionaire.

He`s got a wife, she ain`t no brain child.
EX mud queen of Miami.
In his stretch cadillac, he keeps her in the back.
With his CD player and his bottle of Jack.
LA dude. LA Attitude. Laid back, selfish and getting fat.
Body gaurds, Porn Stars, Gold credit cards.
Using each other. Running for cover.

I don`t want your big city shining.
I don`t want your silver lining.
I don`t wanna be a tattooed millionaire.
