Lyrics For the Love of Money

Some people got to have it hey hey hey
Some people really need it ah listen to me y'all
Well well you wanna
Yeah, uh uh talkin' about cash, money, money
Talkin' about cash money dollar bills y'all
Come on now yeah yeah, yeah, yeah
People will steal from their mother
People will rob their own brother
People can't even walk the streets
Because they'll never know who in the world they're gonna meet
For that mean oh mean mean green almighty dollar cash money
People will lie lie they will cheat
People don't care who they hurt or beat
A woman will sell her precious body
For a small piece of paper it carries a lot of weight
For that mean, mean mean, mean, mean green almighty dollar
Talkin' about, talkin' about don't you 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 mind
Ah, ah, no good no good, no good
Don't sell your soul for the money naw naw
Lay down, lay down, women will ah keep a tellin' ya'll all almighty dollar
