Money Talks — Rick James

Money Talks -- Rick James

When you’re out walking
And money’s talking
Just stop and listen
To what’s it’s saying

Don’t need a dollar
To be a scholar
Drop all your money
And don’t you holler

When you hold the cash
And the dough
And those greenback dollars go
Money’s walking, money’s walking

People need to eat
To put shoes
On their little baby’s feet
That’s money talking

Yeah, yeah
Money talking

Ronnie ran for President
Because he wants to control
Where the money’s spent

What about the war and destitute
Well, they don’t matter
They do not compute

What about the blacks
And the whites
And the reds are so uptight
Cause money’s walking, money’s walking

Taxes rising high
Till my cup is
So empty I could cry
Money’s talking

Yeah, yeah
Money talking

Money talk
Money, money
I say yeah
Money talk
Money, money
I said yeah

Money talking loud and clear
In my ear

She works the corner
Of Twelfth and Vine
Making her tax-free money
Pinching every dime

She has to hustle
To make ends meet
Even a working lady
Finds it hard to eat

What will be the deal
In the end
If to live, we’ve got to steal
But the money’s walking, money’s walking

Ronnie, find the cure
This is just too much for us to endure
That’s freaking talking

Money talk
Money, money
I say yeah
Money talk
Money, money
I said yeah

Money talk
Money, money
I say yeah
Money talk
Money, money
I said yeah

Money talk
Money, money
I say yeah
Money talk
Money, money
I said yeah
