Money money money money, MONEY
Money money money money, MONEY

Some people got to have it
Hey, Hey, Hey - some people really need it
Hey, listen to me, y'all do thangs, do thangs, do thangs - bad thangs with it
Well, you wanna do thangs, do thangs, do thangs - good thangs with it - yeah
Un Huh, talkin' bout cash money, money
Talkin' bout cash money - dollar bills y'all - come on, now
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
For the love of money
People will steal from their mother
For the love of money
People will rob their own brother
For the love of money
People can't even walk the streets
Because they'll never know who in the world they're gonna beat
For that mean, oh mean, mean green
Almighty Dollar!
Cash Money
For the love of money
People will lie, rob, they will cheat
For the love of money
People don't care who they hurt or beat
For the love of money
A woman will sell her precious body
For a small piece of paper it carries a lot of weight
Oh, that mean, mean, mean, mean, mean green
Almighty Dollar!
Talkin' bout, talkin' bout - cash
I know that money is the root of all evil
Do funny things to some people
Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
Money can drive some people out of their minds
For the love of money
No good, no good, no good
For the love of money
Don't sell ya soul for the money - no, no
For the love of money
Lay down, lay down - women will
Money is the root of all evil
Do funny things to some people
Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
Money can drive some people out of their minds
For the love of money
Got to have it - I really need it
For the love of money
Give it up, give it up, give it up - yeah
For the love of money
Got to have it - some people really need it
For the love of money
Give me, give me, give me - cash money
For the love of money
I need - I need
For the love of money
Keep me, keep me, keep me - happy
For the love of money
For the love of money
How many days have I heard ya say
For the love of money
Don't let it, don't let it - don't let money rule ya
For the love of money
How many days have I heard ya say
For the love of money
Don't let it, don't let it - don't let it, don't let money fool you, no
For the love of money
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
For the love of money
Got to have it - I really need it
Don't do it - don't do it
Brother - save ya soul - save ya soul - don't sell it
For that mean, mean, mean, mean green
People, don't let money, don't let money change you
Almighty Dollar!
