Theme

This song is about a woman who is a gold digger, which is a person who engages in romantic relationships for money rather than love. Melanie is trying to warn a man about how this woman is only dating him for his money. She lists reasons as to how she is a gold digger and gives proof that she doesn't actually love him. However, he thinks that Melanie is just joking and ignores her until he discovers that she was right all along. In the end, he is left heartbroken and without any money.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Empty your pockets, she'll give you all her love
Is that made of diamonds? If not, you're gettin' shoved
She'll hold you real tight, squeeze dollars out of you
Grab your wallet from your pocket and have fun with other dudes

[Pre-Chorus]
Uhh oh, should've hidden all your money
Uhh oh, she took it all from you
Uhh oh, you think I'm being funny?
Well, boy, she doesn't really love you

[Chorus]
Oohh, you'll touch the sky
If she told you wouldn't really jump that high
You gave her all your lifelong love just to receive
Her gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love

[Verse 2]
You try to confront her on the cash that she spent
She gave you a kiss and that'll pay the rent
How long will you hold on giving her your life?
She's killing you so fast, but with a golden knife

[Pre-Chorus]
Uhh oh, should've hidden all your money
Uhh oh, she took it all from you
Uhh oh, you think I'm being funny?
Well, boy, she doesn't really love you

[Chorus]
Oohh, you'll touch the sky
If she told you wouldn't really jump that high
You gave her all your lifelong love just to receive
Her gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love

[Bridge]
Now she's found another man
With more cash she can spend
She's swiped you to the end
Now you're left a broken mess
She left you in her debt
She never broke a sweat

[Chorus]
Oohh, you'll touch the sky
If she told you wouldn't really jump that high
You gave her all your lifelong love just to receive
Her gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love

  • It is unknown if there are any other performances of this song that were not recorded or uploaded.
  • Almost every line in this song has to do with something valuable or money.
  • The clock stem from Dollhouse can be heard clearly near the bridge.
