Melle Mel – We Don't Work For Free lyrics

In the darkness of night, huh
All the stage lights are shinin bright, hey
And we work very hard, to make you stay, Rrraah
But it ain't no thing y'all
Cause I know that you can hang
We're not too expensive but you got, to, pay, Rrraah

Some say the money is the root, of all evil
It's not the love, but lust of it, that makes men greedy, oooh
You said, "You want to go for a ride? You gotta pay the fare"
So stop! You ain't got no money, you ain't got no beat
Hoooooh, say you
Got no satisfaction, won't you come and work for me
And I say to you
Can't you see baby, we don't work for free

You know you gotta live, but shit they give you stuff for free
Man these times are hard heyyy, ah don't nothin come easy-hee-ee-yeah
I just got good news, you want to come with me
Hey let's go uptown, I got somethin you should see
And my friends all say to you they say
Got no satisfaction, won't you come and work for me
And I say to you
Can't you see baby, we don't work for free

Finance, city life
You gotta work to afford paradise, huh
But if you livin in a glass house
Don't throw no stones, rrrraah!
Slave, trade, don't get laid
You gotta get paid, if you want to go places
Where you never been before
Ok baby, rrrraah!

Where you been before, don't matter with me
Better save your pennies nickels and dimes
'Cause we don't work for free-hee-ee-yeah
I just got good news (from the IRS) you want to come with me
C'mon let's go uptown baby, because we all drink for free
Hee hee hee, hee, haoowww, we don't work for free-heee
Gotta understand what I mean
Don't you want to come with me, can't divide yourself
Unless you work for free, ah c'mon now, and I don't know what to say
I forgot somethin that you should see
C'mon baby, you gotta come along with me, cause girl
I'm rea-dee-hee for you-uuu, are you ready for me?
I'm sure, I'm sure

And I say to you now, we don't work for free
C'mon baby, you gotta come along with me
Cause satisfaction is guaranteed (we don't work for free)
C'mon now, said I ready to jam
C'mon now, you gotta understand what I mean (we don't work for free)
I've got somethin that you should see
C'mon baby, you gotta hum along with me (we don't work for free)
Yeahhh, a yeeee hoo
We don't work for free
C'mon now, you gotta come along with me
And satisfaction is guaranteed (we don't work for free)
Baby, c'mon now, said here I am
C'mon now you gotta understand what I mean (we don't work for free)
I've got something that you should see!
Ah c'mon baby, don't you want to see? (we don't work for free)
And I'm ready for you so tell me, are you ready for, meeeeeeeeee
We don't work for free

No mo-ney, we-don't-work-for-free
Nah nah nah (we don't work for free)
No mo-ney, we-can't-work-for-free
C'mon now, you gotta understand what I mean
No mo-ney, we-don't-work-for-free
Aooohhwhwowwww! (we don't work for free)
No mo-ney, we-can't-work-for-free
C'mon now, you gotta understand what I mean (we don't work for free)
No mo-ney...
