Money
Barrett Strong Lyrics


The best things in life are free
But you can give then 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)

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)
Lots of money (that's what I want)
Whole lot of money (that's what I want)
Aha (that's what I want)
Aha ha ha ha ha(that's what I want)
Whoa yeah (that's what I want)

Give me money (that's what I want)
Lots of money (that's what I want)
Always need greens (that's what I want)
That's right baby that's what I need(that's what I want)
Aha ha ha ha ha (that's what I want)
Whoa yeah (that's what I want)
Give me money
Lots of money

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 gives 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.)


Money don't get ev'rything, 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, lots of money.
(That's what I want, uh huh.)
Whole lot of money
(That's what I want, uh huh.)
Uh huh. Ah, ah, oh, yeah
(That's what I want, uh huh. That's what I want.)
(That's what I want, uh huh. That's what I want.)


Money, lots of money
(That's what I want, uh huh.)
Whole lot of money
(That's what I want, uh huh.)
Uh huh. Ah, ah, oh, yeah.
(That's what I want, uh huh. That's what I want.)

@were are the dream team but don't you know, every day I hear others complaining or see their mistakes - the same as I made - and I try to impart my experience because as much as ppl believe we are all unique snowflakes and think yeah, that's YOU but I'M different, smarter, got it under control... we really ARE the same.

I get frustrated when I see someone walking the same path as I or others and tell them what lies ahead, what works and what doesn't, it falls on deaf ears. I was no exception bc it's like ingrained to NOT be able to learn from those with the experience to give tips that could, if only heeded, make all the difference in the world.

Whether person to person or the moments etched in nostalgia in the fabric of time, history repeats over and over, though every generation says 'yeah well that was THEN and NOW things are different'. They aren't. So nothing ever changes ultimately, I believe. Like they say we learn from history. Not really. Tear down this wall Gorbachev!! Today BUILD THAT WALL!

If all media stopped and we studied ONLY the facts of human history, then maybe we could see the correlations yet we'd STILL be tainted by nostalgia which distorts the truth inevitably. Like history is a carnival funhouse with moving floors and a house of distorted mirrors due to skewed perception. (Rant Off...lol)

Reminds me of Shirley Bassey with the Propellarheads...History Repeating.

No disrespect to the Beatles version of the song, but how could anyone listen to this and ever want to hear anyone else sing it?

Bertrand Majorik

BASS player here, re-makes, sometimes good or bad.......
depend on taste. Personally, kind of hard to do better than that one here.

@Bill Sanders OH those are the people you were talking about who would have never hear of Barrett Strong.

J Denese

@Bill Sanders I and many others had heard of him and all the other singer/songwriters who actually wrote the originals of various songs. And WE count , IMO, more than whoever you're talking about

Steve Catanzaro

@Bill Sanders Plus whoever wrote this song get royalties mostly thanks to the Beatles.
