"Love Don't Cost A Thing" as written by Jeremy Monroe, Amille D. Harris, Georgette Franklin, Damon Sharpe and Greg Lawson....
You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
If I wanna floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

When you rolled up in the Escalade
Saw that truck you gave to the valet
Knew that it was game when you looked at me
Pulling up your sleeve so I could see the Rolley bling
Saw you later in the corner booth
Raising up a toast so I would notice you
But your heart's a mess
Think you outta know
Doesn't matter if you're balling out of control

All that matter's is
That you treat me right
Give me all the things I need
That money can't buy yeah

You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
If I wanna floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

When I took a chance
Thought you'd understand
Baby credit cards aren't romance
So you're tryna buy what's already yours
What I need from is not available in stores
Seen a side of you that I really feel
Doing way too much, never keep it real
If it doesn't change, gotta hit the road
Now I'm leaving, where's my keys?
I've got to go

All that matter's is
That you treat me right
Give me all the things I need
That money can't buy yeah

You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
If I wanna floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

A thing, a thing, a thing
Yeah, yeah, yeah
You think the money that you make
Can substitute the time you take
Take the keys here to my heart
Then you can win my heart, and get what's in my heart
I think you need to take some time
To show me that your love is true
There's more than dollar signs in you
Then you can win my heart, and get what's in my heart

You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
If I wanna floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
If I wanna floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
If I wanna floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

    General CommentI admit, I like this song. I doubt anyone is wondering what it means, but I love J. Lo, and this is a great pop song.

    General CommentLyric Correction: Instead of "But your heart's a mess" it's "But you're hard to miss"

    General Commentehhh who really cares how she sings, it's a pop song and the producers do a good job cutting and pasting so it's all good!
    anyway I dont know who wrote the song (havn't checked) but the words hold true as syd_mel wrote,

    well anyway, this and waiting for tonight are pretty good and imho stand out from most of the extremely big label pop acts of teh 90s, so they should be respected for that.

    and to the guy that doesnt like her singing even though i doubt you'll read this everrrrr........... are you better or something? :O

    General Commentis she talking about dental floss?! because honestly, if she is, i'm pretty sure that just shows that she's dumb. who cares if she has her own floss. i have my own but i don't go around bragging about it. furthermore, what kind of person can't afford dental floss?! i'm pretty sure it's quite obvious that she can considering people bought her crap and she mad a ton of money.

    however... if it has nothing to do with dental floss, then i feel dumb in advance.... i just never understood why she talked about floss.

    General Commentthis song is nice, especially if u are really missing someone, but it's true, u don't have to know how to sing 'cause the producers make it sound good:>
