LyricsEdit

Singer: Oh, money may be the root of all evil

Money, it might not buy you love

Money won't bring you happiness

or grow new hair

or cure your stress

or get you to the pearly gates above

But there's a bunch of things that money can do:

Put a shirt on your back

And a shine on your shoe

When the cash shows up, I don't say "boo"

I take the money and run

'Cause love can't buy a fancy car

or fill your tank

If you want the finer things,

you'd better break the bank

Cause if there's one sure thing that money can do

Put the pedal to the metal when the rent comes due

When the money shows up, baby, don't say "boo"

Just take the money and run

(Talking): You know, they say that money can't buy love

But it'll get you stuff that is so close to love

That you won't know the difference

I love money

I love my pockets to jingle

That's the way it is when you're single

Oh, cash. I love cash!

I want my wallet to be fat

Like the rest of me

Now blow, boy!

(Horn solo)

Now he sounds like he's got money

(Horn solo continues)

Oh, money

Can put me on the road to the promised land

I want money with me at all times

(Singing): 'Cause love can't buy a fancy car

Or fill your tank

If you want the finer things,

you'd better break the bank

'Cause if there's one sure thing that money can do,

put the pedal to the metal when the rent comes due

When the money shows up, baby, don't say "boo"

Just take the money and run

Oh, yeah

Take the money and run

Go man

Grab your stash, get your cash

We're gonna have a bash

Take the money and run
