Woohoowoohoo woo wooh who
Woohoowoohoo woo wooh who

One night in New Orleans I met a painted lady
She swore that she knew just how to save me
She said it wouldnt take long just to do you a minute
Believe me boy you wont soon forget it
But I was too dead and I told her no
She grabbed my hand and she wouldnt let go
She said listen here boy we aint that different you and me

And its human nature been that way since Cain and Able
If theres bread in your pocket it dont matter how you got it
As long as theres food on the table.
Yeah and sooner or latter your gonna figure it out honey
If you aint in it for loveyour in it for the money

Ahh your in it for the money

I met and old-timer behind Tootsies Lounge
In the shadow of the Ryman as the sun when down.
He said theyll steal your soul in a radio song
They say you want fame but it wont last long
He said youll be tempted but you better say no
He grabbed my hand and he wouldnt let go
He said cowboy we aint that different you and me

Yeah its human nature been that way since Hank and Waylon
You put fame in your pocket but as soon as you got it your star is already fadin
Yeah and sooner or latter this old town sure seems funny
And you aint in it for love your in it for the money
For the money

Everybodys temped
Well everybodys temped
Well have you been temped
yeah yeah yeah

And its human nature been that way since Cain and Able
If theres bread in your pocket it dont matter how you got it
As long as theres food on the table.
Yeah and sooner or latter you better ask yourself honey
Do you do what you do for love
Do you do what you do for love
And if you aint in it for love
Then your in it for the money
Its all about the money

Woohoowoohoo woo wooh who
