LYRICS:
Seems like every body’s got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night.
When the sale comes first,
And the truth comes second,
Just stop, for a minute and
Smile:)

Why is everybody so serious!
Acting so damn mysterious
You got your shades on your eyes
And your heels so high
That you can’t even have a good
Time.

Chorus:
Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right
Can you feel that (yeah)
Well playing with love tonight… 

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag. 

Ain’t about the (uh) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Aint about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world Dance,
Forget about the Price Tag. 

We need to take it back in time,
When music made us all UNITE!
And it wasn’t low blows and video Hoes,
Am I the only one getting tired?

Why is everybody so obsessed?
Money can’t buy us happiness.
If we all slow down and enjoy right now
Gurantee we’ll be feelin all right.
Forget about the Price Tag
