  • See the money wanna stay for your meal
    Get another piece of pie for your wife

    Everybody wanna known how it feel
    Everybody wanna see what it's like

    For baby wanna be a queen well alright
    We all deserve the finer things in this life

    So working on a little job in the night
    That's forty dollars an hour when I see the light

    The boss said I look tired I don't mind
    He'll be working in a small box 'til he die

    For me I gotta be free all my life
    I want a little cream cheese in my pie

    Alright

    Yeah all that time for you know that's
    The greenback boogie
    The motherfucking boogie

    Now puttin' on a big wig
    Walkin' hall
    Hanging with them big pigs
    Huff and toss

    Got me a couple ideas straight from god
    I want a bean pie order me a bean pie
    Living in a a beehive and I don't mind
    Me and Missy it's so early, busy busy makin' money

    Alright

    All step back, I'm 'bout to dance
    The greenback boogie
    The greenback boogie
    Boogie now for me

    Hey

    Say it's more better
    When you give it away
    It's called the greenback boogie
    What people don't say now, I'll say

    It's better when you give it away
    It's called the greenback boogie
    Don't give it all away now, I'll say

    It's better when you give it away
    It's called the greenback boogie
    Don't give it all away now, I'll say

    See the money wanna stay
    For your meal
    Or say it's gonna put some love in your life

    Don't ya really want to know how it feel
    Everybody wanna see what it's like
    People wanna be inside
    It ain't lies
    We all know there's better things in this life

    Yes I'll step out for your last dance
    On the greenback boogie
    Motherfucking boogie
    Boogie oogie oogie
    Greenback boogie
