The green in my pocket
Soon'll be in my hand
It'll slip through my fingers
And catch the next man
And if you're lookin' for love
It'll make you weep
That's why the green in my pocket
Ain't a friend you can keep

Most people give me
A love that is fair
The green in my pocket
Gives a love that ain't there
No matter how you get it
It'll leave you behind
That's why the green in my pocket
Ain't no friend of mine

I been lookin' for a man
Who's as green as he is thin
I finally found my Mr. Money
But now he's gone again

His absence is felt
He likes to remind
Through the weight of a penny
And a silvery dime
He can make you happy
His charms he will lend
But the green in my pocket
Ain't no kind of friend

The green in my pocket
Ain't no kind of friend
The green in my pocket
Ain't no kind of friend
