Ry Cooder — Money Honey lyrics

(Jesse Stone)
(A) - (D) - (E) Capo on 1

(A) Well, the landlord rang my frontdoor bell
(E) I let it rang for a long, long spell
(D) Went to the window, peeped through the blind
(E) Asked him to tell me what was on his mind
He said, (A) "Money honey, (D) money honey, (A) money honey
(E) If you wanna stay here with (A) me"

I was clean and screened and so hard pressed
I called the woman that I loved the best
Finally found my baby 'bout a quarter to three
She said, "I'd like to know what you want with me"
And I said, "Money honey, money honey, money honey
If you wanna get along with me"

Well, she screamed and said
"What's wrong with you, from this day forth
Our romance is through"
I said, "Tell me baby, face to face
How could another man take my place? "
She said, ""Money honey, money honey, money honey
If you wanna get along with me"

I've learned a lesson and now I know
Sun may shine, wind may blow
Women may come and women may go
But before I tell 'em that I love 'em so
I want "Money honey, money honey, money honey
If you wanna get along with me"
