I got to tell you, how to spell love
I got to tell you, how to spell love

Well, a man's a pig in a woman's eye
Till payday
To hold on to love
You got to work your life away
A little bad luck, it don't take much
For the boss, it ain't so funny
Lookin' for the woman you love
She's out chasin' money

Tell me, how do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y

Took you home last weekend
Phone ringin' off the wall
Get a visit from a lawyer
Figure don't work at all
You reach to hold the woman you loved
So much yesterday
Cold as ice, you know why
Friday, where's the pay

Tell me, how do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
I said, how do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y

How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
Spell it, spell it, spell it, baby
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y

Well, I've seen it happen over and over
Time and time again
I've seen lovers turn against lovers
And friends against friends
So let this be a lesson
To whom it may concern
If you want to keep your woman
Go out and work and earn

How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell it, yeah
M-O-N-E-Y
Spell it again now
M-O-N-E-Y

How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell love
M-O-N-E-Y
How do you spell it, baby
M-O-N-E-Y
Spell it, spell it now, baby
M-O-N-E-Y

M-O-N-E-Y
M-O-N-E-Y
M-O-N-E-Y
M-O-N-E-Y...
