People Get Funny When They Get A Little Money

© 1975 Seventh House Ltd.

Music and Lyrics by Eddie Harris

Once a friend is always a friend

It’s not always true

Money makes the difference as to what people say or do

People I’ve known for years

That’s always been the same

When they get a good job, they up and change their name

(Chorus)

People get funny when they get a little money every time x 2

People are the same wherever you go

You can be very good friends, when you both have no dough

Friends talk on the telephone ‘bout everybody in town

When one friend loses his job the other one puts him down

(Chorus)

People get funny when they get a little money every time x 2

People will fight for a cause when it’s to their advantage

When they get a little money their cause begins to vanish

When things are bad, people tend to stay real mad

When things are good, they want to change their neighborhood

(Chorus)

People get funny when they get a little money every time x 2

People will fight for a cause when it’s to their advantage

When they get a little money their cause begins to vanish

When things are bad, people tend to stay real mad

When things are good, they want to change their neighborhood

(Chorus)

People get funny when they get a little money every time x 2

People get a position; they never return your call

They see you and won’t speak when walking down the hall

They join a social club, which is the latest trend

Then get a brand new car and you never see them again

(Chorus)

People get funny when they get a little money every time x 2

I’m no different than you, everybody knows they want money too

When I get some money, I’m gonna act a fool

Buy me a great big car

And cruise around the school
