I knew a lady just a week ago had nowhere's to go

I knew her when she wore a boot and a shoe

Oh boys, swear she was blue

Got her a job, she got to be a prank

She takin' all her money and she put it in the bank

She thought she was wise and I did too

And this is what she's going to do

Now, you put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

You put it in, and I'll take it out

I'm gonna meet you and tell you what it's all about

Goin' away mama, wear you off my mind

You remember when I had the job in Gary you wouldn't give me a dime

Now, you put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

I mean, M-o-n-e-y

You put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

You put it in, and I'll take it out

I'm gonna meet you and tell you what it's all about

Walk yesterday-dee and the day before

Since you got your money you're ready to go

Now, you put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

I mean, M-o-n-e-y

Now, you put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

You put it in, and I'll take it out

I'm gonna meet you and tell you what it's all about

Now little mama, please don't be so bold

But please go easy with my small bank roll

Because you put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

I mean, M-o-n-e-y

You put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

You put it in, and I'll take it out

I'm gonna meet you and tell you what it's all about

Now little baby don't you be so lean

I wanna talk to you if you carry it out clean

Now, you put it in, and I'll take it out

What? M-o-n-e-y

I mean, M-o-n-e-y
