It’s Money That I Love — Randy Newman

It’s Money That I Love — Randy Newman

I don’t love the mountains
And I don’t love the sea
And I don’t love Jesus
He never done a thing for me
I ain’t pretty like my sister
Or smart like my dad
Or good like my mama

It’s money that I love
It’s money that I love

They say that money
Can’t buy love in this world
But it’ll get you a half-pound of cocaine
And a sixteen-year old girl
And a great big long limousine
On a hot September night
Now that may not be love
But it is all right

One, two
It’s money that I love
Wanna kiss you
Three, four
It’s money that I love

Used to worry about the poor
But I don’t worry anymore
Used to worry about the black man
Now I don’t worry about the black man
Used to worry
About the starving children of India
You know what I say now
About the starving children of India?
I say, “Oh mama”

It’s money that I love
It’s money that I love
It’s money that I love
