Intro: I gotta have me some money man

V1:

I gotta have some greens

So I can achieve my dreams

Without needin to scheme

If you know what I mean

Gotta buy my girl rings and shiny blings

Plus a radio cuz she loves to sing

What kind of happiness could money bring

Dang near anything

Cuz I feel like a king

When I can buy somethin for my queen

Especially on Valentine's

I always have enough to spend

For my girlfriend

No need to commit a crime

And the look in her eyes reminds me why

She mine

I work 6 to 9

The checks keep comin and comin

It really blows my mind

My girl and I can wine and dine

All day and all night

So long as I ain't workin

And this I know for certain

Hook:

I feel like I need money

To make my day sunny

I don't need the government to fund me

Cuz I work 6 to 9

Yo all the money is mine (2x)

V2:

It's always nice to see my girl smile

Cuz I can buy her what she wants

Without havin to get wild

I can live an honest lifestyle

And not have my name attached to a criminal file

I can afford long distance

So yo my girl can call her friends

At the touch of a dial

Plus I can buy her a dress

So she can feel her best

Whenever we go out

So hopefully there'll be no blow outs

Oh yes

I can buy her a first edition book

That she can read before she rests

Yo I feel so blessed

Cuz my life could've went another way

It could've been a mess

Thank God it isn't

I see good times in the distance

I'm ready for it with no resistance

Yeah I'm grateful to have witnessed

A wonderful life

With my girl who's my only world

That I hope to make my wife

And who knows maybe we'll have some kids

And I can buy them what they need and deserve

Cuz I'm in a successful biz

Yo I'm happy with my life the way it is

I ain't rich

But at least I have enough money

So we don't have to live in a ditch

And if we do have kids

They can have a home and a tv

So they can watch Lilo and Stich

Aiyo we all know what life can be sometimes

But often it can be sublime

But enough about that

Wait hold up let me check the time

Sorry I don't mean to sound like a jerk

But it's 6:00 I got to go to work

Now excuse me while I put on a clean shirt

Hook:

I feel like I need money

To make my day sunny

I don't need the government to fund me

Cuz I work 6 to 9

Yo all the money is mine (4x)
