Money (That’s What I Want) lyrics



Money (That’s What I Want) – Barrett Strong!

The best things in life are free,
but you can give them to the birds and bees,
I need money (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).

Your love give me such a thrill,
but your love don’t pay my bills,
I need money (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).

Solo

Money don’t get everything it’s true,
but what it don’t get, I can’t use,
I need money (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).

Money (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Lots of money (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Whole lot of money (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Ha ha (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Aha ha ha ha ha (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Whoa yeah (that’s what I want… ah ha ha).

Give me money (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Ah lots of money (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
All of these greens (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Yeah, I’m not saying, that’s what I mean (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Ah ah ah… (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Whoa yeah (that’s what I want… ah ha ha).

Give me money (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
Ah lots of money (that’s what I want, ah ha ha).
