Bill collectors at my door
What can you do for me?
Hey

No romance without finance
No romance without finance

Boy, nothin in life is free
Thats why Im askin you what can you do for me
Ive got responsibilities
So Im lookin for a man who's got some money in his hands

Cause nothin from nothin leaves nothin
You got to have somethin if you wanna be with me
Oh, life is too serious, loves too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security

Cause aint nothin goin on but the rent
You got to have a J O B if you wanna be with me
Aint nothin goin on but the rent
You got to have a J O B if you wanna be with me

No romance without finance
I said, "No romance without finance"

Boy, your silky ways are sweet
But youre only wastin time if your pockets are empty
Ive got lots of love to give
But I will have to avoid you if youre unemployed

Cause nothin from nothin leaves nothin
You got to have somethin if you wanna be with me
Cause life is too serious, loves too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security

Cause aint nothin goin on but the rent
You got to have a J O B if you wanna be with me
Aint nothin goin on but the rent
You got to have a J O B if you wanna be with me

No romance without finance
I said, "No romance without finance"
No romance without finance
I said, "No romance without finance"

Oh, you look good to me
Your silky words are sweet
But your pockets sure look empty

Ooh, nothin from nothin leaves nothin
You got to have somethin if you wanna be with me
Whoa, life is too serious, loves too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security
I said, "Life is too serious, loves too mysterious
Fly girl like me needs security"

Cause aint nothin goin on but the rent
You got to have a J O B if you wanna be with me
Aint nothin goin on but the rent
You got to have a J O B if you wanna be with me

No romance without finance
No romance without finance
No romance without finance
I said, "No romance without finance"

What can you do for me?

Oh, you look good to me
Your silky words are sweet
But your pockets sure look empty

Aint nothin goin on but the rent

Im lookin for a man to put some money in my hands
