Grandpa used to keep his money
Buried three foot deep in mason jars
He forgot more times than not
Where he left it stashed out in the yard

He told us before he died
Boys, dont do what I did
Save enough to get you by
And go spend all the rest

Its only money, thats all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Cant take it with ya, so dont let it get ya
Its only money, yeah

The waiter said, Our featured wine
Tonights a California Merlot
May I suggest the calamari
Oysters or the escargot?

She looked at me and smiled
And in those blue eyes I got lost
I said bring us one of each of them
I dont care what it costs

Its only money, thats all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Cant take it with ya, so dont let it get ya
Its only money, oh, its only money

She found that diamond bracelet
In the window of a jewelry store downtown, oh, no
She said I like the way it sparkles
As she kissed me and I pulled my wallet out, yes, I did

If it makes her happy
I dont care how much they charge
I still got a closet full of grandpas mason jars

Its only money, thats all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Cant take it with ya, so dont let it get ya
Its only money

Oh, its only money, thats all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Cant take it with ya, so dont let it get ya
Its only money, money, money, money

Oh, its only money
Its only money
Its only money
Its only money, oh, its only money
