Lyrics

[Greg] Bright sunny day don't cost nothing
Light summer breeze don't cost nothing
What do I do with all this money?
When the only thing I want is you
Palling around don't cost nothing
Singing a song don't cost nothing
How do I spend all this money?
I'd rather just spend time with you
[Steven] You could buy a house and a car
[Greg] I guess that I can but I've already got a van
I could put you through college
[Steven] But I'm with the Gems all the time
[Greg] Or I could buy you all the finest courses online
[Steven] What if we took a trip?
[Greg] Do you think?
[Steven] Yeah I do! We could take a vacation
We could go somewhere new

Reprise

[Greg] Tailor-made suits, those cost something
Room with a view, those cost something
[Pearl] Dancing with you
[Greg] Don't cost nothing
[Pearl] Why'd we even come, we could've done this at home
Singing a song, don't cost nothing
Or was it palling around, don't cost nothing
Getting it wrong
[Greg] Don't cost nothing
[Pearl] I tried
[Greg] I'm surprised you remembered any of it
[Pearl] What can I say, it's catchy
[Steven] It's over, isn't it?
It's over, isn't it?
It's over, isn't it...
