“Can’t Buy Me Nothing”

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath

I had a dream I could by my way to heaven,
When I awoke I spent that on a necklace
I told God I’d be back in a second
Man, it’s so hard not to act reckless

Without a doubt money was my idol,
Chasin my desires, strayin from the Bible
I felt his presence tryna get through to me
And what I do? Acted inexcusably

Passed the opportunity, so foolishly
My Lord wasn’t gettin through to me.
The “good life”, about my currency
I’m buyin Rollies, drivin round in Ferraris

I’m just sayin how it was man
I thought I’d solve my problems with some dough but no man
That’s when the money ran out then
Out they went cause none of them was true friends

Chorus:
Riches do not profit in the day of wrath
But righteousness delivers us from death
Think money will get me something
Uh uh it can’t buy me nothing
Can’t buy me nothing
Uh uh it can’t buy me nothing.

Now I know I cant depend on money no more
Life falls apart and you just wanna shut the door
On God cause you think you know more,
But you don’t cause only God knows just what’s in store.

So I sit here reflecting all about my old ways
Now I know riches don’t profit these days
But homie this is God’s way
The Lord started centuries ago… boy was I late

Then my heart was evacuated
It’s been filled with God’s love, here I am elated
So I changed my life’s emphasis
Dropped the wheel, gave God the keys

Now I have true confidence in God’s plan
Lead me down the right path for my soul in the end.
Father God I won’t go back again
A’ight man, shalom then

Chorus:
Riches do not profit in the day of wrath
But righteousness delivers us from death
Think money will get me something
Uh uh it can’t buy me nothing
Can’t buy me nothing
Uh uh it can’t buy me nothing.
