Chorus

You can’t get something for nothing
Money can’t buy what you need inside
Cause you got nothing
Cause love is missin’
Baby can’t you see
There’s no substitute for love

Verse

All your life
(All your life)
I bet you’re thinking bout it baby
(Thinking bout it baby)
How illusive is your love
(How illusive is your love)
But you ain’t right
You got that bitch up in you baby
Too damn scared to take the plunge

Chorus

Verse

I don’t mind
(I don’t mind)
Tryin to spend some time
(No no no no no)
But wasting time
Girl not on my mind
But if you can’t see
That our love is true
I guess it’s time
Girl to see we’re through

Chorus





Verse

Now I don’t need
(I don’t need)
To love a woman like you
(No no no no no)
But my love
Girl will see us through
But if you keep playing
This silly game with me
A broken heart
Girl I just don’t need

Chorus

Something
Ahhh for nothing
Hey baby
Money can’t buy what you need inside
You got some bitch in you babe
Yes you do
Cause you ain’ right no no
Come on

Bridge

Girl you’re wasting all my time
Get up off my mind
(You’re wasting all my time)
Girl you’re full of fake and wine
Get up off that vine
(You’re full of fake and wine)
Girl you’re wasting all my time
Get up off my mind
(Get off of my mind)
Girl you’re full of fake and wine
Get up off that vine
(Ahh babe)
Get up out my pocket babe
Get up off my wad
(I’m gonna talk to you)
Without you girl I’ll do just fine
You better walk that line
(What you’re gonna do)
Get up out my pocket babe
Get up off my wad
(All mine all mine)
Without you girl I’ll do just fine
You better walk that line
Oooooo yeah yeah

Chorus


Ad lib

No babe
You can’t get
Hey baby
Don’t you see girl
You’re hurting me babe
Come on girl
Oh you can’t get my love
Oh you can’t get my love
Girl baby don’t you see
You’re hurting me
You got da
You got da
You got da
You’ve got some bitch up in you baby
You can’t get my love
Money can’t buy
What you need inside
