I work all night, I work all day penny,
To pay the I have to pay
Ain't it sad?
And still there never seems
To be a single left for me
That's too bad
In my I have a plan
If I got a man
I wouldn't have to at all
I'd and have a ball
Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
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 but
I can't get him off my
Ain't it sad?
And if he happens to be free
I he wouldn't fancy me
That's too bad
So I must leave, I'll have to go
To or Monaco
And in a game
My life will never be the same.
