Money Changes Everything lyrics

Facebook 'Money Changes Everything' by Tom Gray appears on the Cyndi Lauper album, 'She's So Unusual' - 1984. It's a story song sung in the first person about a girl who leaves her guy for someone with money. While there are many songs about how money can't buy love, this one is the opposite side of the coin, saying that for some, money always trumps love. Lauper didn't change the gender of the song from the original, she simply changed the tense to recount a story.

Some have interpreted the meaning of the song to be about the music business and how big money has changed the business. Gray has never mentioned this, saying only that he got the idea for the song during a conversation with his land lady who was gossiping about another tenant and the reason for their imminent break-up.

I said, "I'm sorry baby
I'm leaving you tonight.
I found someone new.
He's waitin' in the car outside."


"Ah honey, how could you do it?
We swore each other everlasting love."
I said, "Well yeah, I know, but when we did
There was one thing we weren't thinking of and that's money."


Money changes everything
Money, money changes everything
We think we know what we're doing
That don't mean a thing
It's all in the past now
Money changes everything


They shake your hand
And they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends
We'll stick with you till the end

Ah, but everybody's only
Looking out for themselves
And you say, well who can you trust
I'll tell you it's just nobody else's money


Money changes everything
I said money, money changes everything
You think we know what you're doing
We don't pull the strings
It's all in the past now
Money changes everything

Yeah, yeah, yeah, money, money changes everything
I said money, money changes everything
We think we know what we're doing
We don't know a thing
It's all in the past now
Money changes everything

Hey, yeah, yeah, money is everything, yes
Money changes everything, yeah
Money is everything
Money is everything, yes
Money changes everything, yeah, yeah
