Grandpa used to keep his money
Buried three foot deep in mason jars
He forgot more times than not
Where he left it stashed out in the yard
He told us before he died
?Boys, don't do what I did
Save enough to get you by
And go spend all the rest?
It?s only money, that's all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Can't take it with ya, so don't let it get ya
It?s only money, yeah
The waiter said, ?Our featured wine
Tonight?s a California Merlot
May I suggest the calamari
Oysters or the escargot??
She looked at me and smiled
And in those blue eyes I got lost
I said bring us one of each of them
I don't care what it costs
It?s only money, that's all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Can't take it with ya, so don't let it get ya
It?s only money, oh, it?s only money
She found that diamond bracelet
In the window of a jewelry store downtown, oh, no
She said I like the way it sparkles
As she kissed me and I pulled my wallet out, yes, I did
If it makes her happy
I don't care how much they charge
I still got a closet full of grandpa?s mason jars
It?s only money, that's all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Can't take it with ya, so don't let it get ya
It?s only money
Oh, it?s only money, that's all it is
Harder to make it than it is to spend
Can't take it with ya, so don't let it get ya
It?s only money, money, money, money
Oh, it?s only money
It?s only money
It?s only money
It?s only money, oh, it?s only money
