Erykah Badu - Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY) Lyrics

Get Munny [4x]

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [2x]

Eww can't lie to you honey
I just want your money
Hi answer me Munny
Don't run from me trying to
Get away just stay ok
Cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

I look like a model
I'll do what I gotta do
to stay in the running cause I want your money
Give me some
I'll be the one back stage
cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [4x]

I'll wait on your doorstep
Till you let me come in
Hey I'll be your best friend
Say Munny can you come out and
play I'll stay or I'll come back
Cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

Fresher than the others
I'll cook like your Mother
I I'll bring the honey
You just bring the money
Fingers crossed behind my back
Cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [4x]

Jewels Cars and Candy Clothes
Electric garden hose
Down to the minerals
Tickle tickle before stroke
I love your solid golds
I love your pearly ball
You know that I am still
just how you want to feel

Ewww uh oh
Dropped your mind
Scooped it up
Put it in my sock
I'll be your robot girl
Come into me my world
I will wait

Ewww weee boy
let me drop ya off
I'm your predator hey
Cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [4x]

    This song is either about a hoocker or someone selling their soul.

  12. Luther Lubi

    This religion is Baduizm. Period.

  13. Sugakookie and Tae

    When I was 7 years old my mom had this CD and she blasted this song everywhere. Now I'm 15 and I'm a kpop fan and when she put it on in our old car, I cried of nostalgia

  26. Skip Harv

    If you pay close attention she is actually singing THREE SONGS at one time. The Sylvia Stripling (original), Jr Mafia (sample), and her interpolation.
    A perfect combination

  36. Chris Johnson

    I listened to this CD trippin on mushrooms one night and the picture changes forms. Not to mention the music was out this world!!! There's an underlying meaning in this CD.


    @Patrice Scott lmfao has nothing to do with it she just will do anything for money

    Patrice Scott

    @mazda3294 I'm sure that has everything to do with it. You don't have to do anything for money when you're a high priestess. Speak it up..sing it up... It's's majik


    ​@Patrice Scott lmfao its not that deep sis lmfao

    Patrice Scott

    @mazda3294 lol.. Im sure it is.. You must forgot who we talking about..her music deep af if you get it

  59. Derek thrower


  60. Broderick Daniel

  61. kingofdaundaworld

    Most people know it from the junior mafia album but it's actually a dead on replay of the 80's song can't turn me away. Beast. Spiritually visually vocally an lyrical. " I look like a model" damn right.

  62. Samuel Reed

    This song reminds me of somebody... "fingers crossed behind my back" lol!!!

  63. karriem b

    She changes vibrations throughout the album and right before the song comes on, you can hear her tuning us all in..... Exceptional artist shout out to the black goddesses out there I love you


    lol she is a woke thot.

    hawd fangaz

    Those are the BEST kinds!
    Shes got the correct mix of wokeness and ratchetness.
    May she ALWAYS have what she needs!
