Money

 Before you throw this off as some attempt to be Caucasian, take a closer look. I felt the same way when this first reached my ears.

 Over on an MJ message board(I believe it was Maximum Jackson), I inquired. Asking why he would write such outlandish lyrics idolizing money like some hard-core Heavy Medal artists do today? He(or she) assured me Mike was only satirizing the love of money. How people would sacrifice their souls for the almighty dollar. And how true with what he's been through.

 The love of money(an excessive unhealthy yearning for) is truly the root of all evil. Decency, integrity, and loyalty are sacrificed on the alter of Mammon. Ethics are exchanged for a temporary notation. My God was right. Greed will lead you to do things you'd never thought possible(1 Timothy 6:10).

 So no. Michael had no intentions in deifying the buck. Only exposing the whole corrupt system(the media and the record industry).:)

 Originally, Sony wanted to release "Money" as a single for the HBO special. However, "This Time Around". Furthermore, Michael fainted during rehearsals which caused Sony to shelve the project anyways.

Lyrics


Money...
Lie for it
Spy for it
Kill for it
Die for it
So you call it trust
But I say it's just
In the devil's game
Of greed and lust
They don't care
They'd do me for the money
They don't care
They use me for the money
See em' go to church
Read the Holy word
In the scheme of life
It's all absurd
They don't care
They'd kill for the money
Do or dare
The thrill for the money
You're saluting the flag
Your country trusts you
Now you're wearing a badge
You're called the "Just Few"
And you're fighting the wars
A soldier must do
I'll never betray or deceive you my friend but...
If you show me the cash
Then I will take it
If you tell me to cry
Then I will fake it
If you give me a hand
Then I will shake it
You'll do anything for money...
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Insurance?
Where do your loyalties lie?
Is that your alibi?
I don't think so
You don't care
You'd do her for the money
Say it's fair
You sue her for the money
Want your pot of gold
Need the Midas touch
Bet you sell your soul
Cuz your god is such
You don't care
You kill for the money
Do or dare
The thrill for the money
Are you infected with the same disease
Of lust, gluttony and greed?
Then watch the ones
With the biggest smiles
The idle jabbers...Cuz they're the backstabber's
If you know it's a lie
Then you will swear it
If you give it with guilt
Then you will bear it
If it's taking a chance
Then you will dare it
You'll do anything for money...
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
You say you wouldn't do it
For all the money in the world
I don't think so
If you show me the man
Then I will sell him
If you ask me to lie
Then I will tell him
Your playin' with God
So he'll condemn you
You'd do anything for money
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
[X7]
[You want it?
You Earn it
With decency
And integrity
Work hard
For a livin'!]
Money's what makes the world go round
[multiple times]
Yo dirty
[multi-times]
Jo scumbag
Go tell it to the devil
[song fades]
