Money is your home on the range

Money puts the weapon in the stock exchange

Ya make money on your 9 to 5

Uhh to earn your livin so you survive

It takes money to pay your rent and to eat

Without money your home be on the street

So you steal some money and got to jail uhh

And then you turn around and need sumtin for bail

When you need twenty cents to call your lawyer

To plead innocence and say they never saw ya

But before ya ya lawyer a-get you free

He asks how will you pay his fee?

But you have no money, you're in a jam

Your lawyer don't give a damn, watch the cell doors slam

It takes money money (money money)

Cash, money money (money moneyyy) to the bill

It takes money money (money money), that's right

Cash, money money, for real

Hook:

Dollar bill y'all, dollar bill y'all

Dollar dollar dollar dollar dollar bill y'all

Dollar bill y'all, dollar bill y'all

Dollar dollar dollar dollar dollar bill y'all

Dollar bill y'all, dollar bill y'all

Dollar dollar dollar dollar dollar bill y'all

Dollar bill y'all, dollar bill y'all

Make the homies rob and steal, kid for real y'all

It takes money to buy that TV set

It takes money to place that casino bet

It takes money to buy that radio

And money for gas so your car will go

It takes money for you to buy a house

It takes money for a trap to catch a mouse

It takes money to take a vacation trip

A cruise around the world on a pleasure ship

It takes money to get interest from the bank

It takes money for a homey to buy your tape

It takes money to pay for your doctor bill

And your psychiatrist if you're actin ill

It takes money for a king to have a queen

It takes money for the king to buy her ring

It takes money for a castle when the king is crowned

'Cause money what make the world go round

It takes money money (money money)

Cash, money money (money moneyyy), that's right

It takes money money a-to the bill

A-to the be -I-double L, BILL for real

Well if ya got kids a-then you know

The more you spend the more they grow

They go from two to four in a row

But don't think that the growin is through 'cause you'se a fool

They go from four to six and what they bear

They have you spendin all your money like a millionaire

They go from eight to nine and then to ten

Your baby got'cha spendin money again

Wit'cha money now gone your rent is due

And now your landlord is houndin you

But you go to lay down and rest your head

But the bill collector done took your bed

And when you got twentys and fives and tens

Then sometimes you got friends

But when you only got pennys, nickels and dimes

Then you only got friends some of the time

So you make a million dollars to pay a tax

To keep the IRS off your back

Uncle Sam got his and I got mine

And now I got friends all o' the time

It takes money money, uhh (money money)

Cash, money money (money moneyyy), that's right

It takes money money (money money)

Cash, money money, a-to the bill

A-to be -I-double L, BILL for real
