  • You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
    You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing
    Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
    If I wanna floss I got my own
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing

    When you rolled up in the Escalade
    Saw that truck you gave to the valet
    Knew that it was game when you looked at me
    Pulling up your sleeve so I could see the Rolley bling
    Saw you later in the corner booth
    Raising up a toast so I would notice you
    But your heart's a mess
    Think you outta know
    Doesn't matter if you're balling out of control

    All that matter's is
    That you treat me right
    Give me all the things I need
    That money can't buy yeah

    You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
    You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing
    Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
    If I wanna floss I got my own
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing

    When I took a chance
    Thought you'd understand
    Baby credit cards aren't romance
    So you're tryna buy what's already yours
    What I need from is not available in stores
    Seen a side of you that I really feel
    Doing way too much, never keep it real
    If it doesn't change, gotta hit the road
    Now I'm leaving, where's my keys?
    I've got to go

    All that matter's is
    That you treat me right
    Give me all the things I need
    That money can't buy yeah

    You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
    You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing
    Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
    If I wanna floss I got my own
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing

    A thing, a thing, a thing
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    You think the money that you make
    Can substitute the time you take
    Take the keys here to my heart
    Then you can win my heart, and get what's in my heart
    I think you need to take some time
    To show me that your love is true
    There's more than dollar signs in you
    Then you can win my heart, and get what's in my heart

    You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
    You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing
    Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
    If I wanna floss I got my own
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing

    You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
    You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing
    Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
    If I wanna floss I got my own
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing

    You think you gotta keep me iced (You don't)
    You think I'm gonna spend your cash (I won't)
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing
    Think I wanna drive your Benz (I don't)
    If I wanna floss I got my own
    Even if you were broke
    My love don't cost a thing

  • Mike from Matawan, NjHer ass should have it's own zipcode by now. It's 9021(*)
  • Jane from Austin, TxLOL to katina. "chickenhead" ROFLMAO. has anyone ever noticed how eerily similar the music to this and "the boy is mine" by brandy/monica are? i think brandy should sue.
  • Laura from Hacienda Heights, CaYet another horrid example of how she cant sing ... which leads me to point out that many of things she does (acting, dancing, etc) is just terrible. She is a master at manipulation and to be able to be where she is today and get her hands on what she has. It's amazing that that happened but back to the music, and this song. My ears need cotton.
  • Sarah Floyd from Bloomingdale, Ilif love dont cost a thing then why is she with so many guys. then again she is still awesome. and i love her clothes are so cute that i want some of her clothes. i could find her house and take all of her clothes that fit me.
  • Nathan from Defiance, OhHer love doesn't cost a thing, as long as you are famous, drive a Benz, and have a couple million dollars.
  • Somebody from London, EnglandHer love is the most expensive thing in the world!
  • Katina Cofield from Edenton, MsI feel like she is a high price chicken head.and need to care about someone other than herself.help the underclass people b/c they support her music,that's how she got where she is now.
  • Dave from Cardiff, Wales...though since writing the last comment, she has now also split up from Ben Affleck. Until she cures herself of that oversized ego of hers, she'll (deservedly) spend the rest of her life splitting up with each new lover.
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesTo be fair to her, Jennifer Lopez did dump millionaire Puff Daddy in favour of (then) penniless dancer, Cris Judd. Unsurprisingly, though, it didn't last long, and she ran off with another millionaire in Ben Affleck.
  • Jenny from Bedford, Uk, EnglandHer love don't cost a thing? Except a $1.3 million pink diamond engagement ring? Not to mention the cars, clothes, jewellery etc!
