Da da da...

Well, I'm a hard workin' boy
Cuz my mama didn't raise no fools
She told me go out and get a job, yeah
As soon as I got out of school

She told me how 2 catch and hold a woman, ha
B4 she told about the birds and bees
She said, "Baby love, money don't grow on...
Money don't, money don't, money don't grow on trees"
Money don't, money don't grow on trees, yeah
Yeah, it doesn't
Money don't, money don't grow on trees, yeah

Well, I'm a hard workin' boy
Said the only way 2 stay alive
U can't get anywhere daydreamin'
So U better get a 9-2-5

Unless U can dance like Fred Astaire
U better think about a college degree
Cuz baby, money don't...
Money don't, money don't, money don't grow on trees
Money don't, money don't grow on trees
Oh, listen 2 me now, yeah
Money don't, money don't grow on trees, yeah
Listen 2 me now

We do what we do!
My mama didn't raise no fool
U can't dance like Fred Astaire
U better get on the street, everybody up
Get off and move ur feet, yeah!

Money don't, money don't grow on trees, yeah
Oh, listen 2 me now
Money don't, money don't grow on trees
Oh, break it down 1 time

Oh, I need my money (He needs his money)
Like a hog needs slop
Whatcha say brother?
I... baby, baby, I need my money
Don't wanna stop
I love makin' money... ooh
Money... oh

If U can't do like Fred Astaire
Then think about a college degree
Look baby, honey
Money, money, money don't grow on trees!
Money, money don't grow on trees
Don't U know money, money don't grow on trees?
No, I said money don't, money don't grow on trees
Baby, no, the trees, the trees
(Money don't, money don't grow on trees)
Yeah! (Money don't, money don't grow on trees)
Why don't it grow on trees?
No, oh yes (Money don't, money don't grow on trees)
Money don't... (Money don't, money don't grow on trees)
Yes, I'm... I'm gonna take care of my mom, baby
Money don't, yeah
