Ain’t Nothing Going On But The Rent — Gwen Guthrie

Ain't Nothing Going On But The Rent — Gwen Guthrie

Bill collector’s at my door
What can you do for me?
No romance without finance
No romance without finance

Boy, nothing in life is free
That’s why I’m asking you
What can you do for me?
I’ve got responsibilities
So I’m looking for a man
Who’s got some money in his hand

‘Cause nothing from nothing
Leaves nothing
You got to have something
If you want to be with me
Life is just serious
Love’s too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security

Ain’t nothing going on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B
If you want to be with me
Ain’t nothing going on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B
If you want to be with me
No romance without finance, I said
No romance without finance

Boy, your silky words are sweet
But we’re only wasting time
If your pockets are empty
I got lots of love to give
But I will have to avoid you
If you’re unemployed

‘Cause nothing from nothing
Leaves nothing
You got to have something
If you want to be with me
Life is just serious
Love’s too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security

Ain’t nothing going on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B
If you want to be with me
Ain’t nothing going on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B
If you want to be with me
No romance without finance, I said
No romance without finance

Oh, you look good to me
Your silky words are sweet
But your pockets sure look empty
