Whoa-ooh...

People say U got big money
Tell me, is it true?
They tell me that they'll wait N line
Just 2 get a date with U
Without battin' an eye
U gave a hundred dollars 2 a skid-row bum
Well, let me tell U something, baby
If U think 'm dumb

If money's all U got
don't want it
If U can't make me hot
don't need U around
If U can't turn me on
don't need it
need a lover that is strong
ain't got time 2 fool around
need a man
need a real man, uh
need a man
need a M-A-N, real man

They say U got a fancy car
A big Mercedes-Benz
They tell me that this Springsteen
Is 1 of ur best friends
Money don't make no man, sucker
Get up off that funk
Let me tell U 1 more time
N case U think 'm drunk

If money's all U got
don't want it, oh
If U can't make me hot
don't need U around
If U can't turn me on
don't need it, no
need a lover that is strong
ain't got time 2 fool around
need a man
need a real man
Think don't?
need a man, yeah
need a M-A-N, real man
Whoo!
Yeah

Give it 2 me
Give it
Is it alright if play this thing?
Whoo
Get outta my way now

The only way 2 get me hot
need a lover with a lot
A little money don't hurt
But 'd rather have a body that works

If money's all U got
don't want it, mmm
If U can't make me hot
don't need U around
If U can't turn me on
don't need it, no
need a lover that is strong
Ain't got time 2 fool around
need a man, oh
need a real man
Think don't?
need a man, yeah
need a M-A-N, real man
need a M-A-N, real man
Say it again
M-A-N, real man
1 more time
M-A-N

The only way 2 get me hot
need a lover with a lot
A little money don't hurt
But 'd rather have a body that works

Work
Work
Hold on
Give it 2 me!
Ow!
Uh
Give it 2 me!
Work!
Skip this change, keep groovin'
Uh, whoo
Ow!
Work
Uh
need a man, yeah
M-A-N, real man
Ow...!
Give it 2 me!
