"Take the Money and Run" is a song from Teacher's Pet: The Movie where after successfully becoming human and earning money, Spot Helperman, now Scott Leadready II and Leonard Helperman, begins to buy himself new things. It is not to be confused with the Steve Miller Band song of the same title.

It was performed by Jack Sheldon, who sang "Conjunction Junction" and "I'm Just a Bill" in Schoolhouse Rock!

Lyrics

Though money may be the root of all evil

Money, it might not buy you love

Money won't bring you happiness,

Or grow your hair,

Or kill your stress,

Or get you to the pearly gates above


But there's a bunch of things that money can do

Put a shirt on your back and a shine on your shoe

When the cash shows up, I don't say "boo",

I take the money and run


Love can't buy a fancy car or fill your tank

If you want the finer things, you've got to break the bank

But there's one sure thing that money can do,

Put the pedal to the metal when the income's due

When the money shows up, baby, don't say "Boo",

Take the money and run


(Spoken: You know, they're saying that money can't buy love. Money don't get you stuff that is so close to love that you won't know the difference. I love money. I love my pockets to jingle. That's the way it is when you're single! Okay, so I love cash. Want my wallet to be fat. Like the rest of me. While money can put me on the road to the promised land. I want money with me at all times)


`Cos love can't buy a fancy car or fill your tank

If you want the finer things, you gotta break the bank

`Cos if there's one sure thing that money can do,

Put the pedal to the metal when the income's due

When the money shows up, baby, don't say "boo",

Take the money and run

Oh yeah,

Take the money and run

Go man,

Grab your stash, get your cash, we're gonna have a bash!

Take the money and run!
