Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]

[Poppy]

When I was a little girl

I used to think I was wrong

For wanting diamonds and pearls

I never had anything

No Chanel or Tiffany

Like all the popular girls

[Pre Chorus]

They say the best things are free

But I don't get what they mean

'Cause I want everything

And money doesn't grow on trees

You can't just plant a seed

You gotta work it out

[Melanie]

I know my ABC's, yet you keep teaching me

I say fuck your degree, alphabet boy

You think your smarter than me with all your bad poetry

Fuck all your ABC's, alphabet boy

[Chorus]

[Poppy]

Gimme some of that cold cash

I want to stuff it in my couch

C'mon bring me those big stacks

I need them bricks to build my house

Give me all of that, all of that 'til the ATM runs out

If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fabulous

Gimme some of that cold cash

I want to stuff it in my couch

C'mon bring me those big stacks

I need them bricks to build my house

Give me all of that, all of that 'til the ATM runs out

If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fabulous?

[Verse 2]

When I was only 15,

I packed my bags and I said

Goodbye to mom and dad

I was afraid and alone,

Living without a home

Got rid of all I had

[Pre Chorus]

They say the best things are free,

But I can't get what I need

Without some currency

And money doesn't grow on trees

You can't just plant a seed

You gotta work it out

[Melanie]

I know my ABC's, yet you keep teaching me

I say fuck your degree, alphabet boy

You think your smarter than me with all your bad poetry

Fuck all your ABC's, alphabet boy

[Chorus]

[Poppy]

Gimme some of that cold cash I want to stuff it in my couch

C'mon bring me those big stacks

I need them bricks to build my house

Give me all of that, all of that 'til the ATM runs out

If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fabulous?

Gimme some of that cold cash I want to stuff it in my couch

C'mon bring me those big stacks I need them bricks to build my house

Give me all of that, all of that 'til the ATM runs out

If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fabulous?

[Bridge]

[Melanie]

Alphabet boy

Oh alphabet boy

My alphabet boy

( repeated )

[Poppy]

Make that money, make my own money

If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fabulous?

[Chorus]

[Poppy]

Gimme some of that cold cash

I want to stuff it in my couch

C'mon bring me those big stacks

I need them bricks to build my house

Give me all of that, all of that 'til the ATM runs out

If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fucking fabulous

Gimme some of that cold cash I want to stuff it in my couch

C'mon bring me those big stacks I need them bricks to build my house

Give me all of that, all of that 'til the ATM runs out If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fabulous?

Gimme some of that cold cash I want to stuff it in my couch

C'mon bring me those big stacks I need them bricks to build my house

Give me all of that, all of that 'til the ATM runs out

If money can't buy happiness then why is it so fucking fabulous?
