Lyrics:
You know, the landlord rang my front door bell.
I let it ring for a long, long spell.
I went to the window - and peeped through the blind,
And asked him to tell me what was on his mind - He said,

Money, honey - Yes, Money, honey.
Money, honey, if you want to stay here with me.

I was cleaned as a screen, and so hard-pressed.
I called the woman that I love the best.
I finally got my baby about a half past three,
She said I'd like to know what you want with me - I said,

Money, honey - Money, honey.
Money, honey - If you want to get along with me.

She screamed and said, what's wrong with you?
From this day on 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 want to get along with me.

Now I've learned my lesson and now I know
The sun may shine and the winds may blow.
The women may come and the women may go,
But before I say I love 'em so - I want

Money, honey - Money, honey.
Money, honey - If you want to get along with me.

(If you want to get along)
Oh, I need some money
(If you want to get along)
Well I ain't jivin' you honey
(If you want to get along)
You gotta give up some money
If you want to get along with me
