  • She was pretty
    She was smart
    She was witty
    Yeah she had charm
    Cupid shot me
    That's what got me down the aisle
    But that match made in heaven
    Went straight to hell
    Split up our possessions
    Put the house up for sale
    And I learned a lesson I won't be forgetting
    Next time around

    I'm gonna marry for money
    I'll be so damn rich it ain't funny
    I'm gonna have me a trust fund, yacht club, hot tub piece of the pie
    Find me a sweet sugar mama
    With a whole lot of zeros and commas
    Don't really care if she loves me
    She can even be ugly
    I'm gonna marry for money

    I won't have to love her family
    I won't have to like her friends
    And if it works out like I planned it,
    I won't ever have to work again

    I'm gonna marry for money
    I'll be so damn rich it ain't funny
    I'm gonna have me a trust fund, yacht club, hot tub piece of the pie
    Find me a sweet sugar mama
    With a whole lot of zeros and commas
    I don't care if she loves me
    She can even be ugly
    I'm gonna marry for money

    Show me the money

    Cha-ching

    Y'all I'm gonna find a wife
    On a leer jet the old lady buys me
    I'll call her sweet heart and honey if she's a hundred and twenty
    I'm gonna marry for money
    I don't care if she loves me
    She can be really ugly
    I'm gonna marry for money

    Oh, cha-ching
    Mucho deniro

    Come over here you good lookin' thing, you
    Oh, there's your walker in the corner
    Over, over Writer/s: DAVE TURNBULL, JAMES EDWARD MELTON
