Thread Name: Songs about money ($$$$$$$$$$)
Subject: Lyr Add: MONEY (THAT'S WHAT I WANT)
MONEY (THAT’S WHAT I WANT)
Written by Berry Gordy and Janie Bradford
As recorded by Barrett Strong, 1959.

1. The best things in life are free,
But you can give them to the birds and bees.

CHORUS: I need money (that’s—what I want)
That’s what I want (that’s—what I want)
That’s what I want (that’s—what I want)
That’s what I want (that’s what I want).

2. Your love give me such a thrill,
But your love don't pay my bills. CHORUS

3. Money don't get everything, it's true,
But what it don't get, I can't use. CHORUS

Money (that’s—what I want)
Lots o’ money (that’s—what I want)
Whole lot o’ money (that’s—what I want)
Uh-huh (that’s—what I want)
Uh-huh-uh-uh-uh (that’s—what I want)
Oh, yeah (that’s—what I want)

Money (that’s—what I want)
Lots o’ money (that’s—what I want)
All that mean green (that’s—what I want)
Yeah...[REPEAT AD LIB. AND FADE]


Also covered by The Beatles (1964)
