Ain't Nothin' Goin' On But The Rent

Ain't Nothin' Goin' On But The Rent

Gwen Guthrie

Bill collectors at my door
What can you do for me
Hey

No romance without finance
No romance without finance

Boy, nothinâ?? in life is free
Thatâ??s why Iâ??m askinâ?? you what can you do for me
Iâ??ve got responsibilities
So Iâ??m lookinâ?? for a man whose got money in his hands

â??Cause nothinâ?? from nothinâ?? leaves nothinâ??
You got to have somethinâ?? if you wanna be with me
Oh, life is too serious, loveâ??s too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security

â??Cause ainâ??t nothinâ?? goinâ?? on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me
Ainâ??t nothinâ?? goinâ?? on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me

No romance without finance
I said no romance without finance

Boy, youâ??re silky ways are sweet
But youâ??re only wastinâ?? time if your pockets are empty
Iâ??ve got lots of love to give
But I will have to avoid you if youâ??re unemployed

â??Cause nothinâ?? from nothinâ?? leaves nothinâ??
You got to have somethinâ?? if you wanna be with me
â??Cause life is too serious, loveâ??s too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security

â??Cause ainâ??t nothinâ?? goinâ?? on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me
Ainâ??t nothinâ?? goinâ?? on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me

No romance without finance
I said no romance without finance
No romance without finance
I said no romance without finance

Oh, you look good to me
Your silky words are sweet
But your pockets sure look empty

Ooh, nothinâ?? from nothinâ?? leaves nothinâ??
You got to have somethinâ?? if you wanna be with me
Whoa, life is too serious, loveâ??s too mysterious
A fly girl like me needs security
I said life is too serious, loveâ??s too mysterious
Fly girl like me needs security

â??Cause ainâ??t nothinâ?? goinâ?? on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me
Ainâ??t nothinâ?? goinâ?? on but the rent
You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me

No romance without finance
No romance without finance
No romance without finance
I said no romance without finance

What can you do for me
Oh, you look good to me
Your silky words are sweet
But your pockets sure look empty

Ainâ??t nothinâ?? goinâ?? on but the rent

Iâ??m lookinâ?? for a man to put some money in my hands
