Something For Nothing

Something For Nothing

The O'Jays

They wanna get something
They wanna get something
They wanna get something
Something for nothing

Something
They wanna get something
They're trying to get something
Something for nothing

Easy come, easy go
What I'm trying to tell you is worth it's weight in gold
Sometimes it's hard to know who you can trust
They call you brother and leave you in the dust

It takes all kinds of people to make this world go round
And everybody know it's time for you now, now
I'm trying to tell you, I'm know it all too well
They don't care about you or me, they only have all to tell

They wanna get something
They wanna get something
They wanna get something
Something for nothing

Something
They wanna get something
They're trying to get something
Something for nothing

Something for nothing

Honest work for honest pay
Sometimes I wonder, does it ever work that way
Down and up of what they can get
Making a living off of other people's sweat

It takes all kinds of people to make this world go 'round
And everybody know it's time before you now, now
I'm trying to tell you, make no mistake
They don't care about you or me, always on the take

They wanna get something
They wanna get something
They wanna get something
Something for nothing

Something
They wanna get something
They're trying to get something
Something for nothing

Something for nothing
That's a part of my life
Something for nothing
It's [Incomprehensible]

Something for nothing
Don't you forget
Something for nothing
They're always out to get
Something for nothing

Something
Something for nothing

They're only out for what they can get
Once you got the cash, they got no regrets
They sell drugs to the poor, arms for war
They don't care, here's the score

They build nuclear plants and cracks in the wall
And they get so sucker to take the pot
It's all the same, the power game
This is greed, my friend, by any other name

It takes all kinds of people to make the world go 'round
So you better beware, so you better beware, yes, you better beware
I'm gonna prove you wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

They wanna get something
They wanna get something
Something for nothing

They wanna get something
They wanna get something
They're trying to get something
Something for nothing

They wanna get something
Something for nothing
They wanna get something
Something for nothing

They wanna get something
Something for nothing
They wanna get something
Something for nothing

They wanna get something
Something for nothing
They wanna get something
Something for nothing
