I got my G.E.D with a 2.2
I couldn't take four more in a business school
Just to spend another twenty in a cubicle
So I got a summer job cleaning swimming pools
I saw my little angel in a one-piece suit
She had a high-class mind and her face was cute
And for the first time I didn't know what to do
I said, "I'd better start to make the cash
Love is for the middle class"

If all I had was love, would I still be lovely?
If all I gave was love, would you give up on me?
But if you measure love in false securities

I owe you nothin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
Don't need your lovin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
Hey

Your daddy got in trouble with the I.R.S.
Left your mama with a baby and a pile of debt
Sent you off to public school with all the rest
Now you're lookin' for a man who can pay the rent
And for the first time you don't know what to do
Your head says no, but your heart says true
When every other man just puts you last
I said, "I'd better make the cash
Love is for the middle class"

If all I had was love, would I still be lovely?
If all I gave was love, would you give up on me?
But if you measure love in false securities

I owe you nothin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
Don't need your lovin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
Hey

Oh, I wouldn't mind it if we nickle and we dime it
Just to be together in the end
Maybe just a little till we make it to the middle
And they're takin' half of every cent
If you can find a brother that can take you from the gutter
Then I get if you gotta go
But does he really see you like you know I really see you?
Does he love you with his rebel soul
Like I can love you, baby?
Like I do?

I said, "I'd better make the cash
Love is for the middle class"
I said, "I'd better make the cash
Love is for the middle class"

If all I had was love, would I still be lovely?
If all I gave was love, would you give up on me?
But if you measure love in false securities

I owe you nothin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
Don't need your lovin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
I owe you nothin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
Don't need your lovin' at all
Don't owe you nothin' at all
Hey
