No Money, No Love

Most people know that I am the really down-to-earth and practical person. I evaluate things most of the time before I indulge or commit myself to a certain matter. However, relationships aren't really my area of expertise, and no matter how good I am at work, I can't really use back the knowledge and experience I have into it.

Nevertheless, there is one thing in common factor for everything in life - that is MONEY. A friend of mine sent me this link and I find the lyrics somewhat true to most cases revolving around us. Listen to it, it's a little old-styled but whether or not it's true, you'll only know once you've listened to it =)

No Money, No Love,
Poverty IS a CRIME

Artist : Mighty Sparrow
Title : No Money, No Love
Lyrics :

Ivy pack up she clothes to leave
Because John was down and out
All alone he was left to grieve
She had a next man in South
She said openly
I really love you Johnny
But you ain't have no money
So what will my future be
Even though you love me?

We can't love without money
We can't make love on hungry belly
Johnny you'll be the only one I'm dreaming of
You're my turtle dove
But no money no love

If you hear how he plead with she to get she to understand
Listen, mister, she tell Johnny
Let go me blasted hand
And make up your mind
We got to break up this lime
She said poverty is a crime
You got no money
Still you tanglin' me all the blinkin' time

Gentleman let me tell you plain
She say I don't want to make a scene
But if you only touch me again
The police will intervene
You ain't got a cent
I couldn't even pay me rent
I had to give up me apartment
You give me nothing to eat
Now you want me to sleep on the pavement?


  1. we really can't have best of both worlds jeff. either money cannot buy pure love.. love has to be unconditional regardless if your rich or not.. so there.. hehehe..

  2. @Bena:
    Ah well said, but one cannot maintain love without money.. Money is a deciding factor where the love is true or pure. To have the best of both worlds is to have good financial support.

    Maybe it was in the past that girls would fall for a peasant, but in this current era, I don't think there's a girl in the world who'd love a guy who's troubled by money all the time... Hehehe
