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 mineevery time I call him up he’s ready to declineready to find an excuse, tryin’ to get him is no usedon’ know why I try so hard ‘cause he’s no friend of mine
Money always likes to go where money’s always beenhas a taste for luxury the common’s not his scenedoesn’t like to make new friends, he sticks to what he knowsmoney’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 beif he has to visit folks who won the lotterythey get all loud, they build a crowd around himthey 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 bejust to think of awful trends, like those benefit eventsbut a friend of money knowsmoney’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 fatand lately he’s gotten a little bit sad‘cause you see my days of chasing him around are doneand he knows he needs someone like me to have some fundeep inside he knows that he has nothing going onand he needs someone like me to show him how it’s done
but money you got a lot of friends keep hanging with your kindI’ll find you at the country club, bored out of your mindI’ll find you at the country club, bored out of your mind
