Property118 Online Karaoke Challenge

Calling all singers or self-styled Karaoke Kings or Queens. For a bit of fun I’ve tinkered slightly with the lyrics to Gwen Guthrie’s 1986 hit pop song ‘Ain’t nothing going on but the rent’, so if you’re up for a bit of fun, the new lyrics are posted below. If you’re feeling brave and fancy siezing the moment to have your chance of internet fame please feel free to record yourself singing it, post it on YouTube or a similar platform and post a link in the comments section below. Have fun!

Ain’t nothing going on but the rent

Benefits tenant at landlords door

What can you do for me?

Hey

No homes without finance

No homes without finance

Hey, nothin’ in life is free

That’s why I’m askin’ you, what can you do for me

I’ve got, responsibilities

So I’m lookin’ for tenants whose got money in the bank

‘Cause….. nothin’ from nothin’, leaves a nothin’

You got to have somethin’ if you wanna rent from me

Oh, life is too serious, my rules aren’t mysterious

Landlords like me, need security

‘Cause ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent

You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna rent from me

Ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent

You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna rent from me

No homes without finance

I said no homes without finance

Hey, your silky ways are sweet

But we’re only wastin’ time if your bank accounts empty

I’ve got lots of homes to let

But I will have to avoid you, if you’re unemployed

‘Cause nothin’ from nothin’ leaves nothin’

You got to have somethin’ if you wanna rent from me

Oh, life is too serious, my rules aren’t mysterious

Landlords like me needs security

‘Cause ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent

You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna rent from me

Ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent

You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna rent from me

No homes without finance

I said no homes without finance

No homes without finance

I said no homes without finance

Oh, you look good to me

Your silky words are sweet

But your bank accounts empty

Ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent
