The Apprentice Theme Song with Lyrics

November 24, 2010


The very apt theme song for The Apprentice—the one that goes “money, money, money” is officially entitled “For the Love of Money.” It was performed and recorded by Ohio-based, Philadelphia soul group The O’Jays. The song is originally part of their 1973 album Ship Ahoy.

The O’Jays still perform to this date, but they have lost some members and have gone through some lineup changes. As being not primarily songwriters (The O’Jays), “For the Love of Money” was written by songwriters and producers Gamble and Huff—composed of Kenneth Gamble and Leon A. Huff, and bass player Anthony Jackson.

Below is the theme song and an opening sequence from  The Apprentice season two. Enjoy:


The Apprentice Theme Song Lyrics

Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money
Some people got to have it
Some people really need it
Listen to me y’all
Do things, do things, do things, bad things with it
Dollar bills, y’all, come on
Lean, mean, mean green
Almighty dollar
Don’t you know that, money
Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
Money can drive some people out of their minds
Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money


This show features fourteen to eighteen business people who compete over the course of a season, with usually one contestant eliminated per episode. Contestants are split into two “corporations” (teams), with one member from each volunteering as a project manager on each new task. The corporations complete business-related tasks such as selling products, raising money for charity, or creating an advertising campaign, with one corporation selected as the winner based on objective measures and subjective opinions of the host and his advisors who monitor the teams’ performance on tasks. The losing corporation attends a boardroom meeting with the show’s host and their advisors to break down why they lost and determine who contributed the least to the team. Episodes ended with the host eliminating one contestant from the competition, with the words “You’re fired!”
