lyrics

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule oh

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule

Sittin’ on the front porch sippin’ lemonade
Man pulled up in an Escalade
Suited up, slicked down, alligator shoes
And he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse
He said you wanna be a rich girl listen to me
‘Cause baby I can make you a guarantee
Money in your pocketbook easy as pie
Just stand on the corner and bat your eye

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule oh

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule

Watermelon, cornbread, chicken ’n greens
Throwin’ back whiskey like you never seen
Hopin’ that the High life’ll help you forget
Runnin’ with the lowlife you just met
Ever have a problem just give me a call
And I’ll bash his melon against the wall
But better not steal, no, don’t you skim
‘Cause I ain’t afraid to go to jail again!

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule oh

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule

Alright now, let’s bring it down
Way down like my bank account
When you can’t pay your rent on time
Landlord’s beating down your door
Turned off your water and your lights
ooh, whatcha gonna do??

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule oh

Whatcha gonna do for a dollar baby
Gotta keep them pockets full
Bought and sold, when you makin’ that gold
there ain’t no golden rule
