"Money Bought" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
Cherry stem with her mouth she could tie in a knot
Favorite trick she does, one in ten that she's got
Making friends, setting trends, hardly having to try
All the looks, by the book, best that money can buy

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

Last chance to dance, out in back of the bar
Shakin' hands, nice to meet you, I don't know who you are
She has a toke and makes a joke about the alley man
Never pleasured from the treasure in a garbage can

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

Cherry stem with her mouth she could tie in a knot
Favorite trick she does, one in ten that she's got
Making friends, setting trends, hardly having to try
All the looks, by the book, best that money can buy

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

    General CommentI have two theories about this song. First: I think this song is about a girl who seems popular and trendy and rich but in reality all she has is her money from mom and dad to "keep her company". You know, like the bitch at everyone's average high school. She has money, has her posse, seems to have everything, but she doesn't work for what she has. Basically, her money keeps her company, and it comes straight from mom and daddy. That's my first theory. My second is that this girl is a prostitute, "shaking hands, nice to meet you, I don't know who you are" and when business gets slow she gets money from mom and dad. So this guy, um, you know, "buys her for the night" and, basically, "look what you're money bought, it's all that she's got, it keeps her company". She's a prostitute, she's not looking for love, she's looking for money.

    General CommentThis song seems like a girl how is out on her own does drugs with the money from her parents and makes a little extra by selling herself. Powerful.

    General CommentYeah, you should download the Live Version of this song. He explains how the chick got under his skin. It's most excellent.

    General CommentThis song is very LA. I think it's about a shallow girl the band came across while in LA that had money, and looks, but that was it, no emotional depth. She didn't have time for anyone she didn't think was worth her time, "shaking hands, nice to meet you, I don't know who you are" and has disdain for anyone without her kind of money, "Makes a joke about the alley man, never pleasured from the treasure in a garbage can."

    General CommentThis song is about a poor lil rich girl who's falunting what she's got but she has no personality

    General CommentShe'd just a superficial person living on Mommy and Daddy's money. She does what she wants like a snobby bitch and snubs those 'below her.'

    And this song taught me that 'toke' means to smoke a joint. Nickelback is so educational...
