I love watching films about robberies and gangsters- Ocean’s 11, the Guy Ritchie films Snatch and Lock Stock and Two Barrels. The films glamourize the lifestyle. But what if one of these dudes really just wants to get out of that life and be with the woman he loves? That might be tough. Ain’t About The Money is my take on that. So, Mr. Ritchie, if you are reading this, maybe you could put this tune in one of your next movies? Hahahahaha.

Lyrics

Ain’t About The Money

I’ve got so much riding on this day
I gotta be real no mistakes
I gotta cash it out before it’s too late
I gotta scrape the shit off my plate

On the killing floor
Knocking at your door, coming back for more
Ain’t about the money
I’m down on the killing floor
Knocking on your door
Ain’t about the money

Can’t take it with you when you’re gone
It never lasted, lasted too long
And then you’re back, back at square one
Try not to repeat the things you’ve done

On the killing floor
Knocking on your door, coming back for more
Ain’t about the money
I’m down on the killing floor
Knocking on your door
Ain’t about the money


Lost in the shadows chasing an echo
Trying not to die ain’t no way to live
You take and take but never give
Forget forget but never forgive

On the killing floor
Knocking on your door, coming back for more
Ain’t about the money
I’m down on the killing floor
Knocking on your door
Ain’t about the money

Knocking on your door, coming back for more
Ain’t about the money
Hot lead whizzing by my head
Knocking on your door
Ain’t about the money

Ain’t about the money
Ain’t about the money
Ain’t about the money
Ain’t about the money, the money
