I’m on the right track for lots of kissin’
So that old greenback, I won’t be missin’
All the greatest things in life are free
Who needs money? Not me

Cash or credit, it doesn’t matter
Long as my bank books keep growin’ fatter
Easy street is my favorite avenue
Who needs money? I do

Just pity all those millionaires they never can relax
Because they’re always worryin’ about their income tax
Why waste time on high financin’?
I’d rather spend it on good romancin’

What if my pockets are empty as can be?
Who needs money? not me
Tell me about it

Some folks save it, some folks lend it
But as for me I wanna spend it
Give me some green and my skies will be blue
Who needs money? I do

Stocks and bonds, they only bore me
Interest holds no interest for me
Who wants to sit in the lap of luxury
Who needs money? Not me

When I go to bed at night instead of counting sheep
I start counting dollar bills and then I fall asleep

Making money never thrills me
It’s making love that really kills me
What can I lose with my philosophy
Who needs money? Not me
What do you want?

I want a big yacht I can cruise in
The kind that girls just can’t refuse in
All it takes is a million or two
Who needs money? I do

Any time some gal starts flirtin’
Now that I’m broke I know for certain
She really digs my personality
Tell me, who needs money? Not me

Poverty’s the only thing that money cannot buy
So rich or poor it pays to have M O N E Y

A gal who’s tender, that’s what I love
It’s legal tender, I want a pile of
Just let my liquid assets overflow
You can’t take it with you when you go

So, who needs money?
That lovely, lovely money
Who needs money? Not me
