It's not about the money

It's about the way it's made

Comes to you for what you do

Goes out, in much the same way


If making money makes you happy

Know that if it's true for you

Banks and tanks, political planks

Are where you're going to


Money ain't worth fighting for

May be a key but it fits the wrong doors

It'll bind you, confine you

Get way down deep inside you

'Till you want, nothing else, only more


As money came I spent it

I've give out my due

Perhaps afraid if I kept it

The banks might get me too


I'm not afraid of money no

I worship other gods

Friendship peace understanding

Expressing love, repressing war
