Who Needs Money? — Elvis Presley and Will Hutchins

Who Needs Money? — Elvis Presley

I’m on the right track for lots of kissin’
So that old greenback, I won’t be missin’
All the greatest things in life are free
Who needs money? Not me.

Cash or credit, it doesn’t matter
Long as my bank books keep growin’ fatter
Easy street is my favorite avenue
Who needs money? I do.

Just pity all those millionaires
They never can relax
Because they’re always worryin’
About their income tax
Why waste time on high financin’
I’d rather spend it on good romancin’
What if my pockets are empty as can be
Who needs money? Not me.

Some folks save it, some folks lend it
But as for me, I want to spend it
Give me some green and my skies will be blue
Who needs money? I do.

Stocks and bonds, they only bore me
Interest holds no interest for me
Who wants to sit in the lap of luxury
Who needs money? Not me.

I want a big yacht, I can cruise in
The kind that girls just can’t refuse in
All it takes is a million or two
Who needs money? I do.

Any time some gal starts flirtin’
Now that I’m broke I know for certain
She really digs my personality
Who needs money? Not me.

Poverty’s the only thing that money cannot buy
So rich or poor it pays to have M-O-N-E-Y
A gal who’s tender, that’s what I love
It’s legal tender, I want a pile of
Just let my liquid assets overflow
You can’t take it with you when you go

So, who needs money
That lovely, lovely money
Who needs money? Not me.
