Ain’t Nothin’Goin’ On But the Rent

Bill collector’s at my door – what can you do for me-ee, oh

No romance without finance, no romance without finance

Boy, nothin’ in life is free-ee
That’s why I’m asking you, what can you do for me?
I’ve go-ot responsibilitie-ies
So I’m lookin’ for a man who’s got some money in his hand

‘Cause nothin’ from nothin’, lea-eaves a nothin’
You got to have somethin’ if you want to be with me
Oh-oh, life is just serious, lo-ove’s too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security
‘Cause ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent
You got to have a J.O.B. if you want to be with me
Ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent
You got to have a J.O.B. if you want to be with me
No romance without finance, I said no romance without finance

Boy, your silky words are swee-eet
But we’re only wastin’ time if your pockets are empty
I-I got lots of love to gi-ive
But I will have to avoid you if you’re unemployed

‘Cause nothin’ from nothin’, lea-eaves a nothin’
You got to have somethin’ if you want to be with me
Oh-oh, life is just serious, lo-ove’s too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security
‘Cause ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent
You got to have a J.O.B. if you want to be with me
Ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent
You got to have a J.O.B. if you want to be with me
No romance without finance, I said no romance without finance
No romance without finance, I said no romance without finance

Oh, you look good to me, your silky words are sweet
But your pockets sure look empty

Wooh-ooh, nothin’ from nothin’, lea-eaves a nothin’
You got to have somethin’ if you want to…….
