Huey Lewis & The News – Time Ain't Money lyrics

If money is the root of all evil
I'd like to be a bad, bad man
'Cause I'm sittin' here with nothing but time
Trying to make you understand

My time for you is as good as gold
But I ain't got but one dime
If I could just get out of this soul
Baby, we could have a good time, oh yeah

Man said time is on my side
He never knew me that well
'Cause I've got plenty of time on my hands
Time ain't easy to sell

If I could just get a little bit ahead
Think of the things we could do
I'd take my time, your little hand in mine
Spend a lot of money on you

But time ain't money
You know it's a shame
Time ain't money
Unfortunate thang

Time ain't money
Know it's a bitch
If time was money
I'd already be rich

Supposed to be a check at the union
If only I could pick it up
But I got hit with some bad family shit
It looks like I'm out of luck

If I could be a very rich man
Baby, you know that it's true
If I had a dime for every minute of time
I spend thinking of you

Time ain't money
You know it's a shame
Time ain't money
Unfortunate thang

Time ain't money
And you know it's a bitch
If time was money, you know honey
I'd already be rich

If money is the root of all evil
I'd like to be a bad, bad man
'Cause I'm sittin' here with nothing but time
Trying to make you understand

My love for you is as good as gold
But I ain't got but one dime
If I could just get out of this soul
Baby, we could have a good time

But if time, time ain't money
You know it's a shame
And time ain't money
Unfortunate thang

Time ain't money
And you know it's a bitch
'Cause if time was money
Oh honey

Time ain't money
Time ain't money
Time ain't money
I know what they say

Time ain't money
Time ain't money
Time ain't money
Unless you're gettin' paid

Time ain't money
Time ain't money
'Cause if time was money
Oh honey, I'd already be rich

If you got the money honey, I got the time
