Lyrics

I work all night, I work all day,
to pay the bills I have to pay.

Ain’t it sad?

And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me.

That’s too bad.

In my dreams I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man,
I wouldn’t have to work at all,
I’d fool around and have a ball . . .

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man’s world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man’s world
Aha-ahaaa
All the things I could do
If I had a little money . . .
It’s a rich man’s world.

A man like that is hard to find
But I can’t get him off my mind.

Ain’t it sad?

And if he happens to be free I bet he wouldn’t fancy me.

That’s too bad.

So I must leave, I’ll have to go to Las Vegas or Monaco.
And win a fortune in a game, my life will never be the same . . .

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man’s world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man’s world
Aha-ahaaa
All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It’s a rich man’s world

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man’s world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man’s world
Aha-ahaaa
All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It’s a rich man’s world

It’s a rich man’s world
