One night in New Orleans I met a painted lady
She swore that she knew just how to save me
She said it wouldn't take long just to do you a minute
Believe me boy you won't soon forget it
But I was too dead and I told her no
She grabbed my hand and she wouldn't let go
She said listen here boy we aint that different you and me

And it's human nature been that way since Cain and Able
If there's bread in your pocket it don't matter how you got it
As long as there's food on the table.
Yeah and sooner or latter your gonna figure it out honey
If you aint in it for love... your in it for the money

Ahh your in it for the money

I met and old-timer behind Tootsies Lounge
In the shadow of the Ryman as the sun when down.
He said they'll steal your soul in a radio song
They say you want fame but it won't last long
He said you'll be tempted but you better say no
He grabbed my hand and he wouldn't let go
He said cowboy we aint that different you and me

Yeah it's human nature been that way since Hank and Waylon
You put fame in your pocket but as soon as you got it your star is already fadin'
Yeah and sooner or latter this old town sure seems funny
And you aint in it for love your in it for the money
For the money

Everybody's temped
Well everybody's temped
Well have you been temped
Yeah yeah yeah

And it's human nature been that way since Cain and Able
If there's bread in your pocket it don't matter how you got it
As long as there's food on the table.
Yeah and sooner or latter you better ask yourself honey
Do you do what you do for love
Do you do what you do for love
And if you aint in it for love
Then your in it for the money
It's all about the money
