Sting says he won't be leaving his kids his money when he goes to that big rain forest in the sky -- if there's even any left.

The former frontman for The Police on Sunday told U.K. publication The Mail his fortune would be "albatrosses" around the necks of his six children.

Of course it would.

The songwriter-activist, who was raised in a northeast England shipbuilding community, said he told his kids, "There won't be much money left because we are spending it!"

"People make assumptions, that they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but they have not been given a lot," he said.

Maybe they'd get something if they'd wear monkey suits and act like they've escaped from South America.

Sting's wealth was estimated at $306 million by the Sunday Times Rich List.
