Ah ah ah ah

Some live for the bill
Some kill for the bill
She wined for the bill
Grind for the bill
(And she used to be the sweetest girl)
Some steal for the bill, if they got to pay they bill
(And she used to be the sweetest girl)
Tonight Wyclef, Akon, Weezy on the bill

High school she was that girl that make me do the hula hoop around the gym
(Just to get a peek again, she's a 10)
High school she was
That girl that make me do the hula hoop around the gym
(Just to get a peek again, she's a 10)
Never thought she would come and work for the president
Mr. George Washington (where my money at?)
She thought he'd call (where my money at?)
She had a good day, bad day, sunny day, rainy day
All she wanna know is (where my money at?)
Closed legs don't get fed, go out there and make my bread
All you wanna know is (where my money at?)
She ended up in a road car, bruised up, scarred hard
All you wanna know is (where my money at?)
She thought he'd call (where my money at?)

Cause I'm a tell you like you told me
Cash rules everything around me
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Causes I'm a tell you like you told me
Cash rules everything around me
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)

Pimpin' got harder cos, hoes got smarter
On the strip is something they don't wanna be a part of
Rather be up in the club shakin' for a thug
For triple times the money and spending it how they wanna
They got they mind on they money, money on they mind
They got they finger on the trigger, hand on the nines
See everyday they feel the struggle, but staying on they grind
And ain't nobody takin' from us, and that's the bottom line
But I know there's a draught in the block
You move slow
You getting' pressure from cops
you don't know not to lay low
Because 25 to life is no joke
To all my real gorillas thuggin'
On top of corners every day strugglin'
All the beautiful women getting' money
Washin' them dollar bills like laundry

Cause I'm a tell you like you told me
Cash rules everything around me
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Causes I'm a tell you like you told me
Cash rules everything around me
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)

Money, money-money-money
Money, money-money-money
It drives the world crazy

She used to be

She used to be the sweetest girl
She used to be the sweetest girl ever
Now she like sour Amaretto
She wears a dress to the T like the letter
And if you make it rain she will be under the weather
She used to run track back in high school
Now she tricks on the track right by school
She takes a loss cause she don't wanna see her child lose
So respect her, I'll pay up for the time used
And then she runs to the pastor
And he tells her there will be a new chapter
But she feels no different after
And then she asks him
Where my money at?

Cause I'm a tell you like you told me
Cash rules everything around me
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Causes I'm a tell you like you told me
Cash rules everything around me
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)
Singin' dollar dollar bill y'all (dollar, dollar bill y'all)

Some live for the bill
Some kill for the bill
(Yeah, where my money at?)
She wined for the bill
Grind for the bill
(Whoa, where my money at?)
Some steal for the bill, if they got to pay the bill
(Yeah, where my money at?)
Tonight Wyclef, Akon, Weezy on the bill
(Whoa) Where my money at?

    General CommentI never really gave this song a chance but after listening to it a few times, I really like it. It reminds me of Stripper Song by him and Can't Satisfy Her by I Wayne.

    General CommentI looove this song. :]]

    So I'm guessing this song is about a guy who was in a relationship with a girl in high school and supposedly was "the sweetest girl". He sees her one day and sees the way shes living. And obviously she's a poor prostitute, asking her former customers "where my money at?" and whatnot.

    General Commenti also think it is about a girl who became a stripper (or dancer) in order to make just the dollar... or a salary.... no one ever thought she would be cuz in high school she was like a good looking girl and she seemed like she could go somewhere, but now she's "grinding for the bill"

    General Commenti love this song... my boyfriend had told me about it and i had never heard it && he found it on the radio and lemme listen to it... its beautiful... sad if you think about it tho... cause you really dont think of how many girls prolly do like that... seem when they are young they will be great and make something wonderful of themselves but end up havin a hard life and having to do unthinkable things just to make a living... its a beautiful song tho!!!

    General Commentwell im completely confused, shes clearly a prostitue or dancer but whats the deal with the hula-hoops, and i assume shes a prostitue beacuse he says 25 years to life and dancing isnt illegal

    General CommentWell, the way I understand it is that, a girl who was doing very well in high-school, running tracks, good looks etc, fell victim of money, either as a prostitute and/or a stripper. The one asking "where my money at" is, as far as i can tell, her pimp.. Akon's verse is clearly about the Pimp who also has a a hard time, seeing as all the girls want to be stripping in the clubs, as it pays a whole lot more, apparently.

    As for the hula-hoops, i think that describes the persons attraction to her.

    "That girl that make me do the hula hoop around the gym" - I think that speaks for itself, really :)

    General Comment^^ I think it means the girl went from hoola hooping around the gym to stripping.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure he means making "Hula-Hoops" (circles) around the gym, just to see her whether in PE or sports or whatever, "Just to get a peek again, she’s a 10."

    General Commenti think the most poignant lines are
    'And then she runs to the pastor
    And he tells her there will be a new chapter
    But she feels no different after
    And then she ask him… "Where my money at?"'
    shes like asking the pastor, someone who should show her peace and stuff 'where my money at' so shes like, become as materialistic as her pimp so not even gods message can make her see how wrong it is. it also shows how much shes changed since she was that girl in high school.

    i agree with Cloud_dk that akons verse is about the pimp- hence why it says 'cause 25 to lifes no joke' and talks about pressure from cops and how the pimp doesnt know how to lay low

    alsooooo 'sour amaretto' is the drink 'amaretto sour' SURPRISE SURPRISE which shows contrast between the line 'she used to be the sweetest girl ever' and now, not only is she an alcoholic but she drinks sour drinks because shes lost her sweetness in life.

    ahhh late night rambles
    anywayyy, good song! i love it!
