"For the Love of Money [Original Album Version]" as written by Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff and Anthony Jackson....
Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money

Some people got to have it
Some people really need it
Listen to me y'all, do things, do things, do bad things with it
You want to do things, do things, do things, good things with it
Talk about cash money, money
Talk about cash money, dollar bills, y'all

For the love of money
People will steal from their mother
For the love of money
People will rob their own brother
For the love of money
People can't even walk the street
Because they never know who in the world they're gonna beat
For that lean, mean, mean green
Almighty dollar, money

For the love of money
People will lie, Lord, they will cheat
For the love of money
People don't care who they hurt or beat
For the love of money
A woman will sell her precious body
For a small piece of paper it carries a lot of weight
Call it lean, mean, mean green

Almighty dollar

I know money is the root of all evil
Do funny things to some people
Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
Money can drive some people out of their minds

For the love of money
No good, no good, no good
For the love of money
Don't sell your soul for the money, no, no
For the love of money
Lay down, lay down women will

Money is the root of all evil
Do funny things to some people
Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
Money can drive some people out of their minds

For the love of money
Got to have it, I really need it
For the love of money
Give it up, give it up, give it up, yeah
For the love of money
Got to have it, some people really need it
For the love of money
Give me, give me, give me cash, money
For the love of money
I need, I need
For the love of money
Give me, give me, give me
For the love of money
For the love of money
How many things have I heard you say
For the love of money
Don't let it, don't let it, don't let money rule you
For the love of money
How many things have I heard you say
For the love of money
Don't let it, don't let it, don't let money fool you
For the love of money
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
For the love of money
Got to have it, I really need it

Save your soul
Save your soul, don't sell it
From that mean mean mean mean green

People, don't let money, don't let money change you
Almighty dollar
People telling you
People, don't let money, don't let money change you
Almighty dollar
It will keep on changing, changing up your mind
It will keep on changing, changing up your mind
People telling you
People, don't let money, don't let money change you
Almighty dollar
People, don't let money, don't let money change you
It will keep on changing, changing up your mind
It will keep on changing, changing up your mind
