 Lyric:

The best things in life are free
You can give them to the birds and bees

I want money
Yeah, that's what I want (Oh come on, baby)
That's what I want, oh (yeah)
That's what I want

Money don't buy everything, it's true
What it don't buy I can't use

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Your love give me such a thrill
But your love won't pay my bills

Yeah, give me money
Lots of money
If you want me to love you, give me money
If you want me to squeeze you, give me money

Yeah, give me money
Come on, baby, lots of money
Yeah, now, if you want me to love you, give me money
If you want me to hold you

That's what I want
Come on, baby, give me what I want
