Jessie J – Price Tag lyrics

Verse 1:
Seems like everybody's 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,
Everybody look to their right .
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.
Ain't 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,
Guarantee we'll be feelin'
All right.

Pre-chorus:
Everybody look to their left (to their left),
Everybody look to their right (to their right).
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,
Ain't 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 (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 undef-eatable 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 every night.
So we ain't 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,
Ain't 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
.
Ain't about the (ha) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching,
Ain't about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling.
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.

    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.

    People don't know what they want in life, but they believe they need money to get it. So they pursue money blindly, as an end in itself.
    But life is "not about the money, money, money". Figure out what you want and pursue that, and the money, if even needed, will follow.
    There are two motivations for every action we take in life: love or money. Heaven on earth is a world where we no longer use money, and instead do everything out of love, simply because we want to. "we're payin' with love tonight! "

    Everyones got a price? This song is about slavery. I wonder how they sleep at night knowing that theyre oppressing fellow human beings. The sale? On humans. The truth? About how slavery is wrong. Just stop for a minuet and smile is metaphorical to abraham lincon's emancipation proclamtion. Everybody is serious and mysterious kidnapping and selling slaves. Shades on your eyes so people don't recognize you at the slave market. Heels high so you can get better look at the build of the slave your buying, the stronger the better. Everybody look away at the shame and pain their causing on the souls of the slaves. The chorus is just talking about how slaves arnt worth the money, its about the labor or "dance"

    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.
