Lyrics

Money ain’t no friend of mine ( lyrics )

Money’s got a lot of friends but he’s no friend of mine

every time I call him up he’s ready to decline

Money’s got a lot of friends but he’s no friend of mine
every time I call him up he’s ready to decline
ready to find an excuse, tryin’ to get him is no use
don’ know why I try so hard ‘cause he’s no friend of mine

Money always likes to go where money’s always been
has a taste for luxury the common’s not his scene
doesn’t like to make new friends, he sticks to what he knows
money’s at the country club and that’s where money goes

oh oh money money, money, money

well it’s understandable how awkward it must be
if he has to visit folks who won the lottery
they get all loud, they build a crowd around him
they don’t know how to help themselves around him

even worse is charity, oh my god what irony, 
that’s not where he wants to be
just to think of awful trends, like those benefit events
but a friend of money knows
money’s at the country club and that’s where money goes

oh oh money money, money, money

but lately he’s gotten a little bit fat
and lately he’s gotten a little bit sad
‘cause you see my days of chasing him around are done
and he knows he needs someone like me to have some fun
deep inside he knows that he has nothing going on
and he needs someone like me to show him how it’s done

but money you got a lot of friends keep hanging with your kind
I’ll find you at the country club, bored out of your mind
I’ll find you at the country club, bored out of your mind
