I think you've quite correctly remembered exactly half of it- that's the only verse, and he sings it twice. It's fingerpicked in the key of A, with a guitar break interlude preceding and following verses. There is also a sort of "bridge" that goes between where he sings "Money, money, money....when will I ever have some?"....and then sort of hums the remaining melody. It's a great one.
