Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you wanna be with me
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you wanna be with me

I'm not tryna be your hero
'Cause that zero is too cold for me, brrr
I'm not tryin' to be your highness
'Cause that minus is too low to see, yeah

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
And I'm not stuffin', believe you me
Don't you remember I told ya
I'm a soldier in the war on poverty, yeah, yes, I am

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you wanna be with me, oh baby
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you wanna be with me
That's right, ha yeah

Gotta have somethin' if you wanna be with me
You gotta bring me somethin', girl, if you wanna be with me

    General CommentThis was the very first song performed on SNL in it's original debut.

    Very similar to Stevie Wonder, imo. Good song.

    General CommentThis is such a great song. Billy Preston has one of the smoothest voices of all time. Man I would love it if he were still around
