1 more card and it's 22, unlucky 4 him again
He never had respect 4 money, it's true, that's why he never wins
That's why he never ever has enough 2 treat his lady right
He just pushes her away n a huff and says, "Money don't matter 2night"

Money don't matter 2night
It sure didn't matter yesterday
Just when U think U've got more than enough
That's when it all up and flies away
That's when U find out that U're better off makin' sure ur soul's alright
Cuz money didn't matter yesterday and it sure don't matter 2night

Look, here's a cool investment, they're tellin' him he just can't lose
So he goes out and tries 2 find a partner but all he finds r users
All he finds r snakes n every color, every nationality and size
Seems like the only thing that he can do is just roll his eyes

And say that money don't matter 2night (Don't matter)
It sure didn't matter yesterday
Just when U think U've got more than enough
That's when it all up and flies away
That's when U find out that U're better off makin' sure ur soul's alright
Cuz money didn't matter yesterday (Don't matter)
And it sure don't matter 2night

Ooh-wee-ooh, don't matter
Well, it don't matter 2night, no
Doo-doo

Hey now, maybe we can find a good reason 2 send a child off 2 war
So what if we're controllin' all the oil
Is it worth a child dyin' 4? (Is it worth it?)
If long life is what we all live 4 then long life will come 2 pass (Ooh)
Anything is better than the picture of the child n a cloud of gas
And U think U got it bad

Money don't matter 2night (No, don't matter)
It sure didn't matter yesterday (Yesterday, ooh)
Just when U think U've got more than enough
That's when it all up and flies away
That's when U find out that U're better off
Makin' sure ur soul's alright (Make certain that ur soul's alright)
Cuz money didn't matter yesterday, huh, it sure don't matter 2night

Money don't matter 2night
It sure didn't matter yesterday
Just when U think U've got more than enough
That's when it all up and flies away
That's when U find out that U're better off makin' sure ur soul's alright
Money didn't matter yesterday and it sure don't matter 2night
