You just could not know how long we tried
To see how this building looks inside
This must be a lucky day for me
Because the sign says there's a vacancy

Look I know you came a long way
But you made it just too late
So we had to give it to somebody else
Well I talked to you on the phone
Less than fifteen minutes ago
And you told me that it was cool

I graduated from Howard U
My job is paying good money too
And if you check on my resume
You'll find they all wanted me to stay

Well I can't take the time out to check your credit card
'Cause the computer just broke down today
Well I'll stop by here tomorrow to complete our interview
But I know what you're gonna say I know what your bottom line is

You might have the cash
But you can not cash in your face
We don't want you living in here
Say you might have the cash
But you can not cash in your face
We don't want your kind living in here

Too, too, too bad
Too, too, too sad

Our first child is due here any day
That's why we're desperate for a place to stay
The location is so perfect too
So please try to do what you can do

Well in this apartment complex no children are allowed
And you told me that I could have saved you a lot of time
Well I thought the bill was passed that said you could not discriminate
But I know some excuse you'll find because your bottom line is

You might have the cash
But you can not cash in your face
We don't want you living in here
Say you might have the cash
But you can not cash in your face
We don't want your kind living in here

Aye, you might be a great doctor
You might be a great lawyer
You might possess the key to the city
Or maybe a politician

You might have the cash
But you can not cash in your face
We don't want you living in here
Say you might have the cash
But you can not cash in your face
We don't want your kind living in here
