"Paid"
[feat. Eddie Levert]


Every day it gets harder
Just the cost of livin' pullin' me down
I try to stay above water
But these bills got me, 'bout to drown

I can't keep livin' this life
Robbed and beat up but still...
I just been fightin' this fight
But I don't know what's the point of it all

I'll keep a positive mind
But it's hard to flow
When your cash is low
I'm workin' days and nights
Still I can't get up out of this hole

Because I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
And struggle all through the middle
Every month I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
And struggle all through the middle

M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Ain't nothin' movin' 'cause I keep losin'
M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Ain't nothin' movin' 'cause I keep losin'

They make us know that they own us
Though I swear it's more than slavery
They give each other a bonus
While our children live in poverty
What a shame, what a shame

I keep on teachin' my kids
You work hard, you'll go far in this life
But the reality is
I'm slavin' on to the bone to survive

I'd like to take you away, girl
But I just can't see
How that's gonna be
Don't like to slave in this way, girl
Somebody,.. set her free

Because I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
And struggle all through the middle
Every month I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
(Workin' hard, workin' quite hard)

Because I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
And then I struggle through the middle
Every month I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
And struggle all through the middle

M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Not for me, not for me
M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Ain't nothin' movin', I keep losin'

I'll keep a positive mind
But it's hard to flow
When your cash is low
I'm workin' days overtime
Still I can't get up out of this hole

Because I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
And struggle all through the middle
Every month I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
On my back strugglin'

Because I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
I just struggle through the middle
Every month I gets paid on the first, paid on the last
On my back strugglin', strugglin'

M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Not a damn thing movin', no
M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Baby, baby

M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Ain't nothin' movin' 'cause I keep losin'
M O N E Y never seem to multiply for me
Money, money, M O N E Y
