Gimme My Money
Orange Dog Club Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Come on
Ha-how
Oh she said baby
why don't you love me
All I do is treat you right
Oh, are you crazy
All you did was lie
How you gonna be my wife
And my baby don't get it
She don't understand
And your daddy don't get it
He don't comprehend
And the youth don't get it
They don't understand
Adultery is not your friend
So I tell you what I'm gonna do
I'll get the fuck away from you
Oh I got couple choices
You or the dime
I said I'll let you know what I decide
Oh
Oh I said shawty
Your eyes are turning green
Show me what they used to be
Oh I said honey
Why do you give your peace
To a guy who doesn't wash his sheets
Oh it's cause nickels and dimes
Make a pretty rhyme
Fancy shoes
Might look good on you
But it don't matter
You know it never did before
You cannot buy your way to Heaven's door
Two, Three, Four
I don't know what I've been told
My future has been bought and sold
But they don't even care
They don't care
They're gonna see you in your underwear
And I don't know what you've been told
And I don't even mind
Just please don't waste my
Waste my time
Oh, please don't waste my time
Come on
So I told you where I'm gonna be
So get the fuck away from me
Oh I'm not gonna beg you
Or get on my knees
I said this conversation ain't for free
Give me my money in a
Two dollar bill
Give me my money in a
Two dollar bill
Give me my money in a
Two dollar
Just for the thrill
Oh I'm not gonna beg you
I'm not gonna beg you




I'm not gonna beg you
No

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Gimme My Money" by Orange Dog Club delve into themes of love, betrayal, materialism, and independence. The song starts with a conversation where one person, possibly the singer, questions why their partner doesn't love them despite being treated well. The partner is accused of lying and failing to understand the commitment of being a wife. The frustration is evident as the singer contemplates the choice between staying with this person or moving on.


As the lyrics progress, there is a shift towards critiquing materialism and superficial values. The singer questions why the partner is giving their affection to someone who doesn't even take care of basic hygiene. The mention of nickels and dimes creating pretty rhymes emphasizes the shallow nature of focusing on material possessions to define worth. The idea that money and possessions cannot buy true happiness or entrance into heaven is highlighted.


The following verses incorporate a sense of disillusionment and resignation towards societal expectations and norms. The reference to having one's future bought and sold reflects feelings of powerlessness and being controlled by external forces. There is a sense of defiance and rebellion against conforming to societal standards, evident in not caring about being seen in underwear and asserting agency over personal decisions and time.


The repetition of the demand for money in a two-dollar bill signifies a bold assertion of self-worth and value. The refusal to beg or plead for anything, be it love or money, conveys a strong sense of independence and self-respect. The final lines affirm the singer's determination to move forward and not be held back by toxic relationships or societal pressures. Overall, "Gimme My Money" by Orange Dog Club explores the complexities of human relationships, materialism, and the importance of self-worth and independence.
