mas que money money - quiere sentimiento




uhh ah ah ah... ah ah ah
oh oh oh uh... ah ah ah
ah ah ah
todos miran su belleza...ahh
y todos admiran su cuerpo... sii
pero ninguno sabe
que ella solo quieren que la miren dentro
donde hay sentimiento
y todos miran su belleza yes
y todos admiran su cuerpo sii
pero ninguno sabe
que ella solo quieren que la miren dentro
donde hay sentimiento
mas que money money quiere... sentimiento
mas que discoteca quiere... sentimiento
mas que una aventura quiere... sentimiento
mas que la de amonga quiere sentimiento
pero mas que money money quiere... sentimiento
pero mas que discoteca quiere... sentimiento
pero mas que una aventura quiere... sentimiento
pero mas que la de amonga quiere sentimiento
y que la lleven de la mano en los peores tiempos
y que le entreguen toda la vida en el beso mas intenso
y que la lleven al altar y que el amor sea el fundamento
hay el fundamento oh oh
y cuando abran la boca de que te inventa
y que no sea la menta..salgo yo en la dulce menta
cuenta de todas las pasiones que sientan no mientan
si es por ella el corazon te revienta
es tan dificil al tratar quien te asegure o te jure
un amor que para siempre dure
la chica tiene pa llevarte a las nubes
pero ella quiere que enchule ohh
todos miran su belleza ahh
y todos admiran su cuerpo sii
pero ninguno sabe
que ella solo quieren que la miren dentro
donde hay sentimiento
y todos miran su belleza yes
y todos admiran su cuerpo sii
pero ninguno sabe
que ella solo quieren que la miren dentro
donde hay sentimiento
mas que money money quiere... sentimiento
mas que discoteca quiere... sentimiento
mas que una aventura quiere... sentimiento
mas que la de amonga quiere sentimiento
pero mas que money money quiere... sentimiento
pero mas que discoteca quiere... sentimiento
pero mas que una aventura quiere... sentimiento
pero mas que la de amonga quiere sentimiento
y que la tiendan a su paso un jardin de flores
que le regalen un perfume de un millon de olores
y que la llenen de ternura, de poemas y canciones
llenas de emociones eh eh
para sacarla al amor que carro no importa
si el te da cariño vale mas que el de la torta
vale mas la pena los que se comportan
que los que quieren gozar en relaciones cortas
ya la aburre que diga la misma cosa
que la llenen de piropos que le digan que es hermosa
exceso de palabras la pone vanidosa
un poco de ternura cariñosa
todos miran su belleza...sentimiento
sentimiento..pero ninguno sabe
sentimiento..pero ninguno sabe.. sentimiento
todos miran su belleza...sentimiento
sentimiento..pero ninguno sabe..sentimiento
pero ninguno sabe..sentimiento

Lana, not llana. It means "wool".

Also, "con que" is shorthand for money too: "Vamos al cine." "No puedo, güey, no tengo con que pagar."
