"Shake the Money Tree" as written by and Brent Thomas/mc Kelvey Bourgeois....
Said that he would answer every need
Said that we could trust him and believe
If your God hasn't found an answer yet
You better find a way to hedge your bets
Got to make yourself a name
Cross your fingers for that lucky break

Too insecure to live by faith
We're always looking for some other way

[Chorus:]
Shake, shake, shake the money tree
Shake, shake, shake the money tree
Trusting in our wealth
Trusting in ourselves
Shake, shake, shake the money tree

Contentment is a secret we can learn
Regardless of the money that we earn
Doesn't come by rising in the world
Comes by taking Jesus at his word
He has promised to provide
Everything we need for life
Now we're caught inside a living lie

[Chorus:]

You gotta-gotta raise that sex appeal
You gotta-gotta work that business deal
You got to change what you cannot steal
Deep inside you're scrounging for a meal
Made a perfect idol of your wealth
Everyman and woman for themselves
You burn your conscience on the cornershelf
You're dying while you're trusting in yourself
