Verse 1:
Seems like everybodys got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night.
When the sale comes first,
And the truth comes second
,
Just stop, for a minute and
Smile

Why is everybody so serious!
Acting so damn mysterious
You got your shades on your eyes
And your heels so high
That you can't even have a good

Time.

Pre-chorus:
Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right (ha)
Can you feel that (yeah)
We're paying with love tonight...

Chorus:
It's not about the money, money, money
We don't need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

Ain't about the (ha) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Aint about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag
.

Verse 2:
(Listen, Okay.)
We need to take it back in time,
When music made us all UNITE!
And it wasn't low blows and video Hoes,
Am I the only one gettin... tired?

Why is everybody so obsessed?
Money can't buy us happiness.
If we all slow down and enjoy right now
Gurantee we'll be feelin
All right.

Pre-chorus.

Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right (ha)
Can you feel that (yeah)
We'll pay them with love tonight...

Chorus:
It's not about the money, money, money
We don't need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

Ain't about the (ha) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Aint about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

Yeah yeah
Well, keep the price tag
And take the cash back
Just give me six strings and a half stack
And you can, can keep the cars
Leave me the garage
And all I...
Yes all I need are keys and guitars
And guess what, in 30 seconds I'm leaving to Mars
Yeah we leaving across these undefeatable odds
It's like this man, you can't put a price on a life
We do this for the love so we fight and sacrifice everynight
So we aint gon stumble and fall never
Waiting to see, I've seen a sign of defeat uh uh
So we gon keep everyone moving their feet
So bring back the beat and then everyone sing
It's not about

Chorus:
It's not about the money, money, money
We don't need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

Ain't about the (ha) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Aint about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

Chorus:
It's not about the money, money, money
We don't need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag

    Seems everyone is obsessed with money. And it's absolutely ridiculous. If you had all the money in the world, wouldnt life be so boring? Wouldn't life be uninteresting. Leave you always wanting more. But still the world revolves around money, or greed. And I'm sick of watching. And tired of being caught up in the games. I mean, life shouldn't have to revolved around money. I would love to see a day where money didn't matter and people cared. No scamming. Just people jamming. It's that would be the day.

    This song is so true! I just wish she hadn't remade it for the monopoly commercial. Also, to you who said it's "lame. ", you are immature. Because only a shallow, immature child would be so unable to see the actual point of the song. Obviously the singer isn't implying that everyone should stop using money and pay for everything with hugs. The true meaning is that money isn't everything, and neither are trends, fashions, and the luxuries that money can buy. She's asking why everybody can't be happy with what they have.

    I think price tag means that everyone is to busy shopping or messing around or on electronics that they don't see the meaning of life and how not enjoying life can result in being lonly in your older ages I'm for example betty white is still kicking it and having fun but whitney husten died so just cunsider how long you spend on your phone rather then going out and doing somthing amazing.

    Life is boring with or without money, be true, isn't that the real truth, with money you can travel and that isn't so boring, you can have very exciting life with money, you just need to be clever to express your life with money! If you're rich, please listen to me, you are very lucky to have money, so travel all over the world! It's an unforgettable experience! Be happy and proud of your richness, and, never forget, help people who don't have anything!

    Well. For me this song lyrics means, or exactly say's that its not about money the money who makes the people happy but it's about how you flow the things that makes you happy. As well as the truth that we can buy our life when it ends its also ends our happiness, so for it's not the money it self but it's all about how we enjoy life to the fullest.
