This tune is all about finding joy and happiness in life without having a ton of money to help get the job done.

Originally written and performed in my Hutchins Street Project days

lyrics

Ooh, I want the things in life money can't buy
Ooh, waat aat ooh, I want the things in life money can't buy,
money can't buy, money can't buy

I'm not a man of money, I'm not a man of things
But a man of happiness, and what happiness brings
Livin' a life with music, livin' a life with friends
Tryin' to do what I have to, so happiness never ends

Love from a woman, a very special woman
Might just bring some happiness, to me
Knowing someone, so good
That you know they would never let you down, yeah

(Chorus)
You don't need money, to be happy
All you need to have, is the right people around
To make you smile, to make you merry
The ones you want to stay for a while, yeah

Ooh, I want the things in life money can't buy
Ooh, waat aat ooh, I want the things in life money can't buy,
money can't buy, money can't buy

Respect and honesty, can both be got for free
And so can love and trust, and sensuality
Livin' a life with people can be tricky yes indeed
But if you choose your friends wisely, in happiness you can succeed

Cause I'm not a man of money, I'm not a man of things
But a man of happiness, and what happiness brings
Livin' a life with music, livin' a life with friends
Tryin' to do what I have to, so happiness never ends

(Chorus)
You don't need money, to be happy
All you need to have, is the right people around
To make you smile, to make you merry
The ones you want to stay for a while

You don't need money, to be happy
All you need to have, is the right people around
To make you smile, to make you merry
The ones you want to stay for awhile

No money, no money, no money,
the best things in life are for free
No money, no money, no money,
the best things in life are for free
No money, no money, no money, no money happy
No money, no money, no money, no money happy
