"Money Changes Everything" as written by and Thomas I Gray Jr.....
I said I'm sorry baby I'm leaving you tonight
I found someone new, he's waitin' in the car outside
Ah honey how could you do it
We swore each other everlasting love
I said well yeah I know but when we did;
There was one thing we weren't
Thinking of and that's money

Money changes everything
I said money, money changes everything
We think we know what we're doin'
That don't mean a thing
It's all in the past now
Money changes everything

They shake your hand and they smile
And they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends
We'll stick with you till the end
Ah but everybody's only
Looking out for themselves
And you say well who can you trust
I'll tell you it's just
Nobody else's money

Money changes everything
I said money, money changes everything
You think you know what you're doin'
We don't pull the strings
It's all in the past now
Money changes everything

Money, money changes everything
I said money, money changes everything
We think we know what we're doing
We don't know a thing
It's all in the past now

Money changes everything
Money changes everything
Money changes everything, money changes everything, money changes everything, money changes

    General CommentI agree - I think it's a great song. But do you think she's being serious - or is she being overly negative to prove a point and make a statement?

    General CommentThis is really a rocking song by Cyndi. Besides being about how money affects personal relationships i hear the song is also about how the record industry has changed.

    Song Fact...original single was released in 1978 by the Brains as a 45 rpm single on Gray Matter Records. The B side of the single was a song called "Quick with Your Lip". The initial underground success of the song led to the Brains being signed by Mercury Records. They rerecorded the song under the guidance of producer Steve Lillywhite for their 1980 debut album, The Brains.

    Critic Greil Marcus, listing it at number 10 of his Real-Life Rock Top Ten 1979, said, "Singer Tom Gray told his story in a strangled voice, as if he were trying to explain, but instead he laid a curse. This damned single ranks higher than I've placed it, but if it were anywhere else I couldn't end with it, and there's no other way the decade could end."

    Not penned by the great chanteuse Ms Lauper. It was something she wanted to repeat, perhaps. But not words she came up with.
