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.

    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! "

    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 love this song. Its perfect, its what got a lot of what I think and feel. And she sing it so well.
    And money can't buy us happiness its right, and love is what makes us happy: D.
    Love fights everything. Its love that conquers all makes the bad feel easier and the good feel better and is comforting, and best of all doesn't judge,.
    Love makes all the difference,.
    Well done jessie this is a perfect song and is so truthful and meaningful.

    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"

    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.

    I think it is somehow about how sometimes a person sells his/her own conscious for money like keeping quite about a certain situation although you know you have to stand up for it (maybe justice) or telling something different form what actually happened... also like taking bribes, etc.
    She wants everyone to stop thinking about money, and live life like we should - Being true and Having fun.

    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.

    It seems that we understand the meaning of here life wrongly by always looking for money every where and every time and we just forget there is something is more important than money which is love cause since you leave this live your money will be taken by others and soon will finish then you will be forgettable but your love will stay in the hearts of the people who you loved.

    Oh, that is a cool song, but when I reads the lyrics; seems like everybody got a price. I think that is; seems everyone is obsessed with money. They have much money, and they buying some product with expensive price. I think, the genre of the song is pop, too much, maybe. Love this song!

    Everybody these days are material. They don't care about the love neither about the emotional stuff, they just care about looks, money and fame. But fortune can't make us happy at all! Fortune might be used to bring joy but it is not the real thing! Happiness is a feeling that can only be felt because there are people you care about who know how to make you smile and the things that will make you feel good. So the important thing is that we focus on the love and passion and give our all to just bring joy to the world and make them smile because that is the greatest thing ever! Forget the material guys! We won't take anything with us to the after-life!

    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!

    Money can not buy love and happiness because money is just a thing, ofcourse we need money for our daily necessity. It doesn't mean that having lots of money without good friends and family around you will lead you through your happiness. As long as you are contended in what you have and happy to live with good friends and family that is life. Happiness is just how a person deal with somebody feelings. We are never really happy until we try to brighten the lives of others. -helen keller- :)

    I love price tag and think is just what we need nowadays, a nice modern touch to remind us of the basics!
    I love how there is so much meaning to these words like don't get carried away with the idea that money = happiness and is the only thing that matters in this life there are many more important things.
    In my opinion and I'm sure lots of people will agree I would rather be poor with lots of nice friends, family and music, instead of rich, no friends or family and no music.
    Go jessie!

    Your the best singer I ever heard. When I heard this song, I say "wow what a nice song.. " it state that we should stop competing with money. Not only money can give us happiness. Having lot of money is boring. We don't need money for pleasure, as long as we are happy even have no lot of money. We don't know how long we live in this world, so we shoud forget money and be happy.

    I was surprised when I heard this song. It actually has a meaning to it unlike the other junk that's called music in this generation. It's about forgetting about all the stress that's got us buying things to compete against other people's things and to just have a good time, no matter how much money you have or how you look. I love this song it tells a good story. Keep on rockin, jessie!

    Jessie j is an outstanding role model and you should listen to her words wisely since all her songs stand for something! This one for example is about how people just think the world revolves around money but if you look around life is free and yes there's tough times but you will find the answerer nothing in your life is more important to you than family and that's all you will ever need to live a successful life! See nothing can ever be answered by money! Just live your life as you and you will find your path! People, listen to songs they give many important messages that lead you to a dream life-style.
