Listen boy, I'll tell you a thing
I'll make you a career in the business I'm in
I'll make you rich, I'll make you a toy
I'll make you turn over into my little boy

Y'see, I'm going somewhere
I don't know what I'm gonna do when, when I get there
You know money's a thing your only inspiration
And your only meaning

You must think that all I do
Is spend my time making pretty pictures of you
You can fall when I will climb
But I'll be falling over just by having you in my mind

Mend that fight, oh listen to them
Kickin' up a ball inside a Jericho wall
Mend that fight, it's all twisted through them
If you ain't rich then you won't go to the ball

Having mercy and licking up love
And moving through your ocean like I've never had enough
Y'see, you ain't all I want
You're everything and more that I have ever hoped for

You must think that all I do
Is spend my time making pretty pictures of you
You can fall when I will climb
But I'll be falling over just by having you in mind

Mend that fight, oh listen to them
Kickin' up a ball inside a Jericho wall
Mend that fight, it's twisted through them
I'm rich, you ain't, so you won't go to the ball

You won't go to the ball
You won't go to the ball
You won't go, you won't go
You won't go to the ball

You won't go to the ball
You won't go to the ball
You won't go, you won't go
You won't go to the ball

Well you must think that all I do
Is spend my time making pretty pictures of you
You can fall when I will climb
But I'll be falling over just by having you in my mind

Mend that fight, oh listen to them
Kickin' up a ball inside a number 10 wall
Mend that fight, it's twisted through them
I'm rich, you ain't, so you won't go to the ball, no more

You won't go to the ball
You won't go to the ball
You won't go, you won't go
You won't go to the ball

You won't go to the ball
You won't go to the ball
You won't go, you won't go
You won't go to the ball

Yeah, if you ain't got nothing, oh nothing
You'll never go there, you'll never go there
Oh, if you ain't got nothing, oh nothing
You'll never go there, you'll never go there

I tried to make you see
I tell you I'd had enough
Money was a thing, money was a thing
Money was a thing that I believed in

I tried to make you see
I tell you, I'd had enough
Money was a thing, money was a thing
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money

You know I may
Money was a thing, money was a thing
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money was a thing, money was a thing
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money

You'll never go there
Money was a thing
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money
You'll never go there
Money was a thing
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money
