I'll Take Love Over Money

This song is by Aaron Tippin and appears on the album Stars And Stripes (2002).

Have I got the deal for you

Would you like to have a t-bone steak and lobster
Served on the finest china
Accompanied by a bottle of the world's greatest wine
Served in a crystal glass
Or would you rather have
A Big Mac, an order of fries, a cherry pie
Underneath a big oak tree
Sittin' on a blanket
Snuggled up with the one you love.

I'll talk love over money
Forget the green, give me honey
Some people work work work their lives away
But I'll take love over money
Any day

Okay check this out
You're on the streets of Paris
Standing underneath the Ifle Tower
Surrounded by all the magical things the City of Romance has to offer
But you're all alone.
Or would you rather be at the state fair
Standing in line for the Tilt-A-Whirl
Eatin' cotton candy
MM that's good
Drinking a Dr. Pepper
And stealing a kiss from the one you love.

Okay now think about this
That's it, a low flowin', red slick, candy apple,
Rockin' sled of a Farrari
Price tag 205 and some change
But no one and I mean absolutely no one will ever be in the passenger seat with you
Or would you rather have a 1989
Mud gray 150 extended cab with 4 wheel drive
And sittin' right next to you as close as the law will allow
Chewing bubble gum, singin' in your ear
Along with Lynyrd Skynyrd
Is the one you love
