Gwen Gutharie Lyrics

Ain't Nothin' Goin' On But The Rent Lyrics
Bill collector's at my door
what can you do for me?
No romance without finance
no romance without finance.
Boy
nothing in life is free

That's why I'm asking you: what can you do for me?
I've got responsibilities

So I'm looking for a man who's got some money in his hand.

'Cause nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'

You've got to have something if you wanna be with me.
'Cause life is too serious
love's too mysterious

A fly girl like me needs security.

'Cause ain't nothin' goin' on but the rent

You've got to have a J - O - B if you wanna be with me.
Ain't nothin' goin' on but the rent

You've got to have a J - O - B if you wanna be with me.
No romance without finance
I said: no romance without finance!

Boy
your silky words are sweet

But we're only wasting time if your pockets are empty.
I've got lots of love to give

But I will have to avoid you if you're unemployed.

'Cause nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
. . .
'Cause ain't nothin' goin' on but the rent
. . .
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!
Ain't nothin' goin' on but the rent -
I'm looking for a man to put some money in my hand.
